I dont knw how to upload music onto my RCA opal mp3 player


There's a manual for the M4001 in pdf format, it's under this link:
Making music transfers:
> Explore 'My Computer' and use the copy and paste or drag and drop method for music transfers: seeing the player as a removable disk.
Before you disconnect, when exploring the player, always go through the safely remove hardware icon in the right corner below of your computer screen. Left click the icon and left click again on the drive letter of your player: after the message the device is disconnected, it is safe to take out the USB cable. ( look in the manual for more info )
> Use Windows Media Player 10 or higher:
Right click in the upper bar of WMP10 or higher and see the Help function for how to transfer music.

Music won't download it shows up on the computer but once it's unplugged from the computer it's no longer there...


Media players have certain folders for holding the data in the player.
Most players (not all) will accept 2 ways of files transfers and depends on the USB connection mode.
Some players switch automatically into the operating connection mode when connecting the USB cable.
Other players can be switched through specific key operation on the player or using the menu in the player.
Consult your manual or use internet support for information about your player's functions. See if you have to install software and maybe updates as well.

1. USB cable connect mode MSC = Mass Storage Class.
Using the explorer in "My Computer", seeing the player as an external flash drive:
When the files are not put into the correct destination folder, the content will not be kept in the memory of the player.
Before disconnecting in MSC mode always go through "safely remove hardware", the icon in the right corner of the computer screen: disconnect the player's flash drive in the icon "safely remove hardware", before pulling out the USB cable.

2. USB cable connect mode MTP = Media Transfer Protocol.
Using a software program like Windows Media Player 10 or 11, the player should be recognized as a media device:
Files must be put in a playlist on the computer first: create a playlist.
After that, synchronizing of the playlist onto the player has to be done.

When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.

Icon doesn't show up in my computer

Do a firmware upgrade first. If not allowed, then download the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool from:

"Safely remove hardware" is a normal function of Windows - it allows you to disconnect your Mp3 player without messing it up (unplugging any mp3 player while it is still "thinking" is the number one reason for mp3 player failure - always be patient with mp3 players, and try to always use the Safely Remove Hardware feature of Windows).

Wont turn on

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
