Transferring files via Windows
Explorer (Drag-and-Drop)
In Windows XP (with Windows Media
Player 10 or above installed)
In Windows XP and when Windows Media Player10 is installed, the player is connected to the
computer in MTP mode. In the Windows Explorer,when the player is opened, the “Data” and
“Media” views will be displayed for the player.The Data folder is used to manage data content
on the player, such as text files. The Media folderis used to manage media content supported by
the player for playback, such as mp3 and wma.You can copy files to the player through Windows
Explorer (drag-and-drop). Picture files should be copied to the “Media” folder for viewing while
video files can not be dragged and copied to the “Media” folder directly as only .SMV files are
supported. The video files must be converted and transferred via RCA Video Converter for playback
(refer to page 19). Alternatively, you can transferthe converted video files to the "Data" folder via
the Windows Explorer (drag-and-drop).
You can copy files to / delete files from the player through Windows Explorer (drag-and-drop), but
you cannot open or edit the files directly from the player. If you want to edit the files, you will
need to copy the files from the player to another location (drive) in the system.
I was able to locate the manual for you...It will provide you with more information for your device..I hope this helps...

    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. This doesn't work for video.

    To add videos, you have to convert and add video from the RCA video converter software which comes bundled with the Opal. Once the video is converted, you still need to use the software to transfer the files - it doesn't seem you can do so through the file browser like you can with music and pictures.

Dont know if M43 series falls under M4308 or M4304 type model


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.

Video not showing


There is a media converter for that player - consult your manual for details. Should be on the installation Cd, but available from RCA's website also.

My rca opal 4gb will not add more than 39 songs


hi teddy,

first try to format your player, if it has an option to do that. secondly ensure that the bit rates of the music files are in following ranges: mp3: 32-320kbps & WMA: 48-192kbps. and if u have uploaded pictures (.jpg) files into it then ensure hat they are not very high in number bcoz it can support upto 2000 items only including music and video and picture files.

try these.. hope they will help..

How do you add videos on a RCA Opal?????


alright, its pretty easy all you have to do (if your using a windows based computer) is go to the start menu in the bottom right hand corner and go to My Computer. If your opal is plugged in with the mini-usb it will show up in the disk drive part of the window that opens. double click it and youll see the folders...drag the videos to the Videos folder

How do i put music,videos and pictures in my opal


Most laptops do not have a USB port that is powerful enough to fuel an mp3 player.
This player is not compatible with Vista or Mac
Make sure the hold/lock key is not engaged
Make sure your laptop USB port is enabled
Make sure you have Windows Media Player 10
