Question about RCA M4208 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Computer is erasing my MP3 Player favorites and settings.

How do i stop my RCA MP3 Player (m4208gr-b) from wiping all my players' settings (favorites and such) when i plug it into the USB on my computer? i found someone else who lives near me with one and theirs does the same thing as well.

    Thank you for the reply (solution #1) but i had already done as you suggested (updating firmware and the rca application) before i posted here.

    let me add more detail to my problem.
    when i plug in the mp3 player a file dialog box appears with a progress bar and it shows it going to 100% and shows the file names that contain the data(im assuming) on the player, its really fast, probably 1 sec or so. so i cant really cancel it. its like it is replacing the settings of my mp3 player to the default ones every time i plug it in the usb port on my pc. its quite annoying. i would uninstall the rca application, but i like the video converter and some other misc things they let me use.

    thank you for your time.

How do i dowload music to my opal M4208GR


Manual for RCA Opal M4208GR:
http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/manuals/M4208GR/media/M4208GR_DOC_OM.pdf

This player has default setup MSC mode, seeing the player as a flash drive also called a removable disk.
MSC = Mass Storage Class
When seeing the player as a removable disk in Windows Explorer:
Drag and drop the song, with mp3 or wma format, into the Music folder on the player.
Note: some wma files may have DRM = Digital Rights Management. These files might be copied or transferred onto the player but cannot be started for playback.
Important: in MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk, at the bottom right corner of the task bar.

Transfers to the player can also be done with software like Windows Media Player 11, RCA easyRip or other software from music stores.
This can be done in MTP mode. MTP = Media Transfer Protocol.
How to switch to MTP mode, seeing the player as Media device:
In the players Menu go to Settings. Go to Protocol. Select MTP mode / switch from MSC mode to MTP mode.

I need the volume louder!


try another set of headphones, well, not on the player, if its on the max then its maxed out. but basically if you connect it to speaker you can turn the speakers volume up even more.

might be bad headfones?

Need to reinstall data on RCA Opal M4208GR-B


I did the same thing and reformatted mine too! If you go to www.rcaaudiovideo.com and put in your model number M4208GR and click on the update for the firmware update again then it will put everything back on the MP3 player. I know it sounds nuts but it worked for me and it wont do anymore harm then you have already done ;) Give it a try. Hope it works for you like it did me!

RCA M4208GR total frozen


Unplug the RCA from the computer. Uninstall all RCA software and then reinstall it. Then replug the RCA into the computer.

If that fails, try using the volume + instead of the menu button.
