It's supposed to make this weird little sound when you plug it in so you know that it is connected but it's not. So if you can please, please, please, please, please, please, please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its not your son's fault. Apparently this product sucks. I contacted RCA and they told me that if i had my receipt they'd send me a refurbished product or to send in $55 and they'd fix it. apparently MANY other people have problems with this product. My suggestion is if you have the packaging and receipt just choose another product. RCA knows this product sucks yet wont recall or help in fixing it.

I think the one causes it is the improper unplugging of your son maybe the program of your mp3 player was corrupted.
You try to plug it on your pc then try to check if your pc detects it. if its detected try to check it on your mp3 player application and see if theres a repair function on it, if not, well you better look for a function that formats your mp3 player

SOURCE: i can`t find the reset button on my rca opal m4001 mp3 player

Some models have reset switches some do not.
Look on the back of your mp3 there should be a tiny hole there.
That is the reset switch for most opal. Other way to reset is hold power button down for 15 seconds.

If you cant find it you will have to go to the RCA website and download the latest firmware.

Make sure the songs are DRM-protected or in Mp3 format, or this player will not take them.

There is a hold switch on the right side of your mp3 player. Just flip it off and you should be good to go, otherwise if it is froze, just take a pin and push the reset hole on the back

hope this helps

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpg, the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.
