You should be able to just drag and drop the folder into either the media player, or directly into the opal. To drop files into the opal, just click the my computer icon on your desktop, then after the window opens you should see the opal icon listed with the other drives you have. Then open up your folder with the music, highlight the ones you wish to move onto the opal, and drag and drop the file over the opal icon. If you did it correctly, windows will show you that it is copying the files to the opal. Good luck and enjoy!

I can't download music files from my computer to my Opal RCA MP3 player.


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

How do i dowload music to my opal M4208GR


Manual for RCA Opal M4208GR:
http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/manuals/M4208GR/media/M4208GR_DOC_OM.pdf

This player has default setup MSC mode, seeing the player as a flash drive also called a removable disk.
MSC = Mass Storage Class
When seeing the player as a removable disk in Windows Explorer:
Drag and drop the song, with mp3 or wma format, into the Music folder on the player.
Note: some wma files may have DRM = Digital Rights Management. These files might be copied or transferred onto the player but cannot be started for playback.
Important: in MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk, at the bottom right corner of the task bar.

Transfers to the player can also be done with software like Windows Media Player 11, RCA easyRip or other software from music stores.
This can be done in MTP mode. MTP = Media Transfer Protocol.
How to switch to MTP mode, seeing the player as Media device:
In the players Menu go to Settings. Go to Protocol. Select MTP mode / switch from MSC mode to MTP mode.

How do i transfer all my music video's from my music file to my opal rca mp3 player when i plug in my mp3 player.


This unit supports windows xp and vista Just have windows media player locate all your audio and WMA compatable videos. Then use the sync feature at the top of your windows media player to create a sync list on the right hand side by dragging your stuff over to that area .Use start/sync button in the lower right corner this should get you loading your player!!

Audio book download


The RCA Opal supports Audible audiobook downloads almost exclusively. You can transfer audiobooks that are in mp3 or wma format, but they will not play like regular audiobooks - they will play as one continuous file. I would use Windows Media Player to transfer the audiobooks to the player, but you can drag and drop using Windows Explorer also.

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...

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpghttp://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=187), 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.
