Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Charging player/downloading songs causes computer to crash.

I was trying to charge the mpo3 unit using the usb line and subminiture plug and within five minutes, my computer froze up. When I restarted the unit, my screen went blank. I took it to MicroCenter where I purchased it, and I was told that the I/O controller was fried. It there an alternative to charging the mp3 unit without plugging it into the computer's usb ports.

Is the usb chord the charger and what you use to download


Hi Cedric
Yes the chord is the charging cable and the download/upload cable.
You will plug it into the usb port on your computer for charging.
You will need Windows Media Player installed in your computer ...after it is installed add your songs to Windows Media Player, then plug your Mp3 player in with Windowns Media Player running, your mp3 player will be recognized and then you can add the songs you added to Windows Media Player.

I can see the songs on my computer that I have uploaded onto my SanDisk and I can also add new music as well, But the system will not charge and when I connect it to the USB cord it says connected but it...


ensure the unit is chargeable using usb data cable, usb charger has only 2 out of 4 wires connected to the charger whereas when the cable is used as data cable all the 4 wires are connected and the device acts as a usb device, this may block the charging of the device due to internal circuit design within the device.

Ipod won't work unless plugged in to computer or mains


alison65,

good day, the only possible cause why your player can only power up using it's own charger or through pc connection is:

1) The connection of the rechargeable battery inside the player is loose or out of contact

2) The rechargeable battery itself is faulty
3) The connection from the charging line is loose or out of contact

most likely your problem is within the internal of the unit.

cheers,
mark

When i connect my sansa clip 2gb it will not charge. it say connected and then goes off. I thought it was charging but when i checked it the battery had died what do you suggest i do to get it working...


Hi,
Check for the following:

USB Cable 
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable. 

Computer in Hibernation mode 
Make sure the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected.  The computer must be on in order to charge your player. 

USB Port 2.0 
Make sure the player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems). 

USB Port location 
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device. 

Battery 
Make sure the battery is fully charged.  It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery. 

Latest firmware 
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater

CHARGING A 1 DAY USED SANDISK SANSA MP3 4G


Run the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisks' website and start over from scratch. Usually this problem is caused by trying to transfer too many songs at once, but any number of Rhapsody errors could have caused this.

Charging problem....


You might have a "bad" song? Try wipping the songs off and resyncing youre player. Also, for the charging problem. Are you charging it through your computer? I've found that these players charge ALOT better through an AC outlet. I hope this helps.

Samsung mp3 player crash


Hi undercover. I don't have experience of your actual model, but I've had a similar thing happen to my Inovix MP3/4 player when it crashed (also crashing my whole computer!) and went completely 'dead'. Plugging it into the USB port had no effect - no charge symbol and the computer didn't even acknowledge something was being plugged in. Basically, I kept on trying every time I was on the computer! 2 days later, I plugged it in and 'ding-dong' Windows XP recognised something was in the USB port. I then carried out a Firmware re-load using the supplied disc, and my player burst into life! Firmware crashes are pretty common with various players, I believe. Depending on how old your player is, try the manufacturer's website to see if they've updated the Firmware. Good luck.
