Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).
Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.
Use a free program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real Video files to aVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the RCA Easy Rip software should recognize the video files, and you can use the Easy Rip software to convert/transfer them to your player.
There are ways to work around the easy rip. If its mp3's you want on it you can drag and drop them into the opal folder. If you want smv video files you need to. you need two programs. 1st program is http://www.any-dvd-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ (free program) It lets you change all video formats to mpeg is the setting I like then after its an mpeg. You use http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm (free Program) It converts the files to smv (video file that Opal accepts)
You have to use the video converter program that came with your opal. If you haven't installed that onto your computer yet, that's where you need to start. After it's installed, plug in your opal, let the computer recognize that it's there, and open the converter program. This will take wma files and convert them into a format that will work with your mp3 player. The program should automatically download them to the player after it converts the file. Good luck.
In order to add pictures, you need to go to the Media>Pictures folder (go to My Computer>Opal (should be listed under Audio Devices as Opal with an icon that looks sort of like an old Minidisc player - you might have to scroll down to find the icon once you click on "My Computer in Win XP), and add pictures from your collection. P.S. Please rate accordingly... Thank you Computerrep
you have to go into the program on your computer that holds all your pictures with your mp3 pluged in you just have to right click on the photo that you want to add and select send to and then click on the dirve that your mp3 player is on and your photos will be tranferred.
