Reinstall the firmware or go on the internet at rca.com and select your mp3 from the list then on the right you'll see "downloads" click on it and select Opal firmware and follow those instructions

When i power on my rca opal it says it is building database


The device requires 50MB of free space to build the internal database. Make sure you have at least that much space before trying to power on again. If you do have that much space, there is likely an issue with the firmware and will require a firmware reload.

You can download the update from here:

Follow the installation instructions provided. (You may need to backup the media on your device if you don't have it already on your computer)

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!
