Re: opal 8gb

Hey, I have the same MP3 and I have Windows 98. I didn't try to install the CD that came with it. All you have to do is plug it into your USB port in the back.
Hope it works,

I lost the disk to my RCA Opal and I am wondering if I can still download music from i tunes. Is their free downloads that would help me with this problem?

You can only put non-DRM iTunes music on your Opal (.m4a I think is the extension unprotected music, so if your music has this extension you sould be ok)

There is no important disk that comes with the RCA Opal. You can run the easyRip installer and during the install it will prompt you whether you want to "import" media from iTunes to easyRip (all this process really does is map to it, not copy it) and any media that gets imported by easyRip can be transferred to your player using easyRip's Player Loader module.

You can download easyRip from the RCA site here:

Mine didn't recognize either, so what I did is go into the device manager, find the opal in the listings, double-click, disabled the device, re-enabled it, at which time it shows that there's a firmware error. I then re-installed the driver from the cd, unplugged the opal, plugged it back in, and for whatever reason, the computer then recognized the opal as a mass storage device, instead of a portable music player. The computer now sees it everytime, and all I have to do is drag and drop any files I want into the opal. Works like a charm. Hopefully RCA will provide an updated firmware program in the near future, but this might work for you for now. Good luck!

My rca disk they gave me in the package says it wont download

No. Your RCA Opal is a plug and play device 1. Plug USB cord into Headphone Jack (you MUST use the USB that came with the RCA Opal) 2. Plug USB cord into computer 3. Wait... 4. In my computer, it'll say "usb device" or "drive f" or whatever 5. Open "media" folder on that drive 6. And put your Mp3s on there. if you can't do that, than you need to upgrade your computer. Not many MP3 players support ME.
