How do i put music on my digital touch mp3/mp4

There are a few different ways to do this. One is to connect it to USB, then go to my computer, find the drive with your player on it. Leave this window open, and then go and open up your music folder, click and hold on the song you want, and drag the folder over to the file folder with you player on it, and let go of button and it will be added. To add all your songs from music folder, click left top song so it is highlighted, then press and HOLD the shift key, the scroll to bottom right last song, click on it. Now all songs should be highlighted, then drag and drop all these files to your mp3/mp4 file folder and they will be added.
The other way is to get windows media player 11. Sync your device with sync button, create a playlist with all your songs, then add them to sync list and hit sync and they will be added to your player

My Opal Is deleting music after it gets over 69 songs. Its a 7gb so that shouldnt happen. Every time I add a song it takes the song but delete another, and I cant find the music. Help. I just got it last...

I do believe that your memory might be corrupted or you memory has a broken memory unit. try to plug it into a computer and make sure they have windows media 11 it works best for that opal. not nessarily needed though. after the plugin does your computer show that it was pluged in if so back up your music and format the memory in it. my computer, it should show your opal right click and format.

[V-Touch] Organizing Music File

make sure that all of your id3 tags are correct and filled in for each music file before dragging and dropping. initially when i added files to my vtouch, the player recognized them automatically and added them to the standard playlists. every time i add files now, i have to manually add each one to the playlists by touching MUSIC > ADD TO AUDIOLIST > ADD TO AUDIOLIST. Then you should be in the AUDIO folder. Double touch AUDIO to view it's contents (which should now be your 'artist' folders, if you organized it that way). Go into an artist folder and double touch each track to add it to the playlists. You should see a "wait..." message and then "success" for each track you add. BUT they are not added yet, my friend. I KNOW! WHAT A PAIN!!! So when you are done adding tracks, you need to touch the back arrow to get back to the MUSIC menu. Then touch UPDATE AUDIO LIB. This may take a few minutes depending on how many tracks you added. When it's done, you should have all the tracks you added in all of the playlists.

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.

Here's a link and a suggestion - not only may the firmware upgrade improve functionality and restore missing files, it will also delete all your songs so you can start over from scratch:

If you believe your firmware may be corrupted, use this file to restore the original (OEM) firmware.
Firmware v1.2.8.0 Enhancements:
  • Enhanced voice recording performance
  • Enhanced battery charging capabilities
Firmware v1.2.4 Enhancements:
  • Improved charging compatibility with Windows™ 2000
  • Improved user experience when shutting down

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpg, 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.
