  • Gurnetbeach Dec 27, 2007

    Mine also says that I need to reformat, but I charged it for the recomended 3 hours, so I don't think it's that I charged it to long...

    Also everytime I turn my mp3 on, it keeps saying Reformat me. I would plug it in and out and I would go to my computer and the opal file isn't there. What should I do??

Go to http://www.rcaopal.com/ and redownload the firmware needed for your player, then reformat your mp3 player.

There are four different versions available. Make to sure to look on the back of your mp3 player to see if it is M4001A, M4002A, and so on...

RESET didn't work


The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the Windows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Reinstall the firmware from http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/opal_fwutility_v2.3.0.exe

RCA OPAL M4002A ERROR MESSAGE


Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpghttp://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=187), the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.
