Unfortunately, it sounds like you'll need to return your player for exchange or send it in for repair using the warranty.  Have you contacted the Warranty/Customer Service dept. at RCA?  Can you return the player?  They sell them at Walmart, as well as other retailers in case you're not sure where it came from (Walmart will let you exchange it as long as all the original parts and packaging are there and you have a valid Driver's license).

My RCA Opal MP3 wont show up on my computer and it wont charge


This is battery problem, since it work with your computer directly, you no the computer power supply charge it directly so all you need do now is to get another battery and make sure you charge the new battery for some time before you power on.

Compliments and best of luck

Can't add songs to the mp3 player


First, go to my computer and scroll down to devices with removable storage, then look for you mp3 player, click on it, enter it's file system, and find where it keeps mp3's, then just copy and paste, it bypasses the software. If that does not work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and program, then try it again. That is a model number

The solution is to reset your firmware.
You can get this directly from the RCA website at

http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/OPAL_4GB_8GB_FWUtility_v1.2.8.0.exe

Or you can try to fix your problem using someone else's files for your player.
You need to set your computer to view hidden files for this--the firmware on your player uses hidden files like this. I don't have those files handy--you may try searching online forums for onther m4008a users.

Good Luck!

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.

Rca opal M4008A mp3 player


Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=187), 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.

FF - This is a common problem with Audiobooks - there is no way around it on this player. Drag files to Audiobooks folder to get them out of the "music" folder

Make sure the hold button on the right side of the player is pulled down away from the arrow.
I had this same problem today one I move the hold button, it rebuilt the database and
went into the menu.
