    well the reason it whont show up on your computer is that most add ons need 2.0 and the internal usb only give 1.0 so i would invest in a hub carrier with it own power sorce and you won,t waste your monet as it can be used for any divice just go to any computer shop and exsplain what you want and they will help you then you should be ok

Dont have the software to put songs on my player

Can you see it your player under My Computer?
I'm also assuming that you have a computer USB cable?
If so, in My Computer right click player, EXPLORE, find the MUSIC folder. Sometimes the manufacturers hide it under a bogus file name, just open each folder, looking inside each until you find a folder named MUSIC.
All your music already has to be in the mp3 format, COPY it from that location (hard drive, CD, flash drive), then PASTE it into the music folder on your player.
Disconnect from the computer and check out your songs, enjoy.

Need to reinstall data on RCA Opal M4208GR-B

I did the same thing and reformatted mine too! If you go to and put in your model number M4208GR and click on the update for the firmware update again then it will put everything back on the MP3 player. I know it sounds nuts but it worked for me and it wont do anymore harm then you have already done ;) Give it a try. Hope it works for you like it did me!

RCA Opal Not Recognized

The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player.
If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the WindowsTM format command on the unit. To reformat the memory
  1. Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
  2. Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
  3. Reinstall the firmware from

Help Please!

Try removing the battery and connecting it to the computer.

If it shows up on the Computer, format it.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (Lyra)>Right Click and select format.

This will erase everything on the device and allow you to start over.

Best of Luck.

Take the battery out and put it back in after a few seconds, turn it on again and pray. If the same happens, plug it in with USB, take all your music onto your computer and make sure none is on the USB device and format it. Once formatted, try turning it on again, if it works, copy your music over and try again. If it does not work, it is likely faulty and should be returned.

Why cant i put songs i removed back on

This player can only handle songs that are in a specific bit rate - lower it to the rate suggested in your product specs. Go to RCA's website if you have lost the documentation. Corrupt file systems can usually be solved with a firmware upgrade (also at RCA's website), but if that fails:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
