As long as the computer enumerates the drive (you can see it in My Computer as a drive letter) then there is likely an issue with the firmware.
Download the firmware install from the RCA website: http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2558
Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.
Be sure to back up any important media before performing this install.

If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds.

My m4204 wont come on


You will need to update the firmware - this particular firmware doesn't exactly resolve an issue that you are experiencing, but it will have the side effect of fixing your player. Before I give you the website, I have to issue my new disclaimer - RCA changes their website frequently, so this link will work today, but it may be a broken link tomorrow - such is the pace of change:

Cannot open my M4204-A


Sounds like you need to reformat yyour drive or update your firmware. Here is the link try it first without formatting there is a check to format and not format. If you run into a problem. do this
Unplug the mp3 from the USB press and hold the menu button for 10 seconds, release then press and hold the play button, while holding the play button plug it back in. Wait until it says intializing, then release the play button and press start. Here is the link.

Mine wont turn on


On the back of the the mp3 player is a reset switch.
Hold that down about 15 seconds.
If that does not work go to the RCA website.
Download the latest firmware.
Plug mp3 player into pc.
Install the new firmware.
Keep it plug to computer for about 1 hour to charge the battery alittle.

M4204 dead


Run the installation CD first, before connecting.
Are you running vista? You may need a clean version of the installation software from RCA's website.
