I have the same exact problem with my Opal RCA mp3. It worked for months and was great until I tried turning it on when it was fully charged. When I hooked it in to the computer it wouldn't recognize it.

Use Windows Media Player to view the files on the disc, and rip them onto your computer, so that you can transfer them to your RCA player.

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

Computer wont recognize opal when i plug in


Try reformatting your device, that should do the trick! Also, make sure that your drivers on your computer support that divice! Also, make sure your drivers are updated fully! Also, maybe you have a bad sync cord!

Opal rca mp3 m4002a TROUBLE!


Disable the auto-sync option in Windows Media Player, and then delete the songs again from Windows Media Player. If auto-sync is not disabled, then those songs will never go away.

CAN'T GET MUSIC ON M4002A!!!


Mine did the same thing. I'm guessing that there is a firmware issue, as this seems to be a common problem with these units. If I were you, I'd keep checking back with the RCA website and see if they have updated the firmware from what you have (most likely 2.3) Good luck!

No display on my RCA OPAL M402A Player


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Why cant i put songs i removed back on


This player can only handle songs that are in a specific bit rate - lower it to the rate suggested in your product specs. Go to RCA's website if you have lost the documentation. Corrupt file systems can usually be solved with a firmware upgrade (also at RCA's website), but if that fails:
