It might be something going on inside of there such as crossed wire or just a defective unit. Has it done this for you before or just recently?

Is there anyway you were able to exchange it or do you still currently own it?

Also, see if the manufacturer has any info on file within their manual to assist you otherwise you can notify them directly to see if this is a common error in case you still own it.

It appears you also posted this question back in January we're very sorry to see that no one has gotten back to you sooner. Keep us posted on how things go for you. Thanks!

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

My sony has sat for about a year and now when i plug it into the computer to cahrge, it will light up, thentell me to charge the battery, but it wont turn all the way on

A lot of computers don't put out enough juice to charge by USB port.
Congratulations you have effectively run down the battery to 0.  Plug this thing in an AC out charger and let it sit for about 8 hours.  Then try turning the thing on.  If you get nothing, then your battery is totally depleted to the point of no return and you gotta open this thing up and put in a new battery.

Have you reset it? Grab a needle or a end of a ear-ring and put it in the hole located right of the ear phone jack, once you hear a button being pressed down, hold for 5 seconds and then it should turn on. As for recongnization, try different USB ports on your computer.
