DB corruption

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

My mp3 won't charge at all


If when you plug into usb cable dose it show that a device was pluged in ? If it dosen't turn on then youre charging cable is bad. If cable isn't bad remove software from youre computer using remove programs, unplug opal from usb then reboot youre software for youre rca opal cd.

Tht mp3 player (opal) when turned on stays on initializing. Trouble turning on. When pluged in to computer lt says to plug into the computer.


Reset, repair, firmware upgrade, recoveyr method - check your manual or RCa's tech support line for details. My only original contribtuion is:

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

WWON'T POWER ON


For one, you don't need the CD to put music on the Opal. It's a plug and play device. Go to My Computer on your desktop and you will see under Audio Devices "OPAL". Click on that and you'll see a folder called "Media" and that's where you put your music.

For not turning on, click Pause/Play twice

For charging, You need to plug in the USB cord into the computer to charge it. Wait 3 hours. The Opal doesn't have a real long battery life, i'd say around 10-15 hours. So you'll be needing to charge it quite a bit.
