Hi, How do I delete music from my Opal M4002 mp3 player?

if you want to delete music from your Opal M4002 mp3 player, all you need is use the usb of the player and connect to your computer. If the computer recognizes your usb then a folder will pop up and you choose open folder. Then you can right click on the music you want to delete from the player. That is all you have to do.

Transfer media

A guide in how to transfer media for the RCA Opal M4001 see this manual in pdf format: manual for RCA Opal M4001

For more help on for this device see the support site:
support for RCA Opal M4001

When using Windows Media Player 11, a short description how to deal
with putting media on the device:

1. Have WMP11 always on top for "drag and drop" usage
Right click in the head of the WMP11 page:
in Tools > Options... > Player : select "Keep the player on top ..."

Restore Down the size of the WMP11 screen and adjust the size on the
edge(s) as you require for your screen.
2. in [Library] mode: under Playlists "Create Playlist" e.g. "My Playlist"
and Enter: "My Playlist" is added on the right screen side.
3. Open your data maps and ad files by drag and drop method
onto the right saying "Drag items here"
4. when ready adding files in [Library] mode: "Save Playlist"
5. in [Sync] mode drag e.g. "My Playlist" under the connected device
and "Start Sync": wait until al files have synchronized: a message
will show up when you can disconnect the player.

Note; convert video with the RCA video converter on the computer
before transferring it onto the player.
A download can be acquired with the next link:
download RCA video converter
1. download the execute file
2. install the converter by clicking on the execute file:
" rcasmvconverter_v1.6.2.0.exe "

No. The RCA Opal does not support playlists beyond the rudimentary "Favorites" that is built into the unit.

You must use a file interface to download mp3s from an Opal device before you try to upload them to a website. Be aware that DRM (copy-protected) files will probably not work on other computers or for people to download from a website.

If you cannot get a file interface to the Opal after plugging it into your USB port, have the unit serviced or replaced.

Good Luck!

RCA Opal M4002A Won't let me access playlist without shutting down

You need to re-image your firmware--it sounds like something is corrupted there. I have seen this behavior on other mp3 devices in the past; sometimes it requires special techniques to reset the device. Let's hope this isn't the case with your Opal--RCA was rude enough not to provide a handy reset procedure.

If you are daring you can try to replace the firmware files directly on your Opal using your son's files. You need to enable viewing of hidden files to do this: Tools-->Folder Options...-->View-->Show Hidden Files and Folders. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" and say "Yes" to the dialog that pops up. You can change these back later. For MacOS X, open Terminal, then type "defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE", push Enter, Option-click (and hold) the Finder icon, then choose Relaunch.

Now, simply copy your Opal's files over to a local directory on your hard drive (this is a backup so you can't make things worse), and then copy your son's Opal files onto your Opal. The files should be as follows:

All of these files should be placed in the root of the drive--in the folder on the Opal that also shows folders like "Audible", "FMRecord", "Music", "Pictures", etc. After the transfer, stop and unplug your Opal. Try to turn it on and see what happens. If it looks OK, try to hook up to it with Windows Media Player. If you are still having trouble, use the firmware from the RCA website--even if it is the same version. Failing that, you may need to have the device serviced or replaced.

Good Luck!

Can Download New Music

The "My Selections" playlist? You have to delete the entire playlist. Or do you just want to get rid of old music on it? It's a plug and play device (on XP at least) and you can delete what you don't want from there.
