Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Opal m4008 cant put music on it

I saw you're response to the hardrive reseting problem and the opal not accepting anything. I have a similar problem that I couldn't find help elsewhere, My yahoo juxebox wouldn't open so I had to remove and reinstall it. Now it has the same problem as the person above. You told her to reformat it. My Question is how do you reformat it I cant even look at the music thats on it.
Please tell me how at Senuhet@yahoo.com
My Mp3 player is really a 4008 but the product selection wouldn't recognize it.

Here's a link and a suggestion - not only may the firmware upgrade improve functionality and restore missing files, it will also delete all your songs so you can start over from scratch:

Its actually an rca opal M4008


myspacepepe this just worked for me. Try downloading the firmware here:


http://www.fixya.com/support/t322643-rca_opal_m4008a


Then read this solution another user posted. Hopefully this helps you. I had the same issue.




I had this problem. Backing up data wasn't a concern though, as I hadn't anything on the OPAL yet.
First I let the OPAL charge up for 3 hours. Then I made sure it was powered off. I had previously downloaded onto a PC the firmware update for the M4004 which also works on the M4008 and other OPAL's. I plugged the OPAL into the PC, and booted up the PC. After installing the firmware package in the PC, you get an install screen for the new firmware with a format option for the OPAL. I selected that option, but the "start" button was greyed out as the PC still couldn;t see the OPAL. I pressed the reset (paperclip in the back of the OPAL) for about 15 seconds, than held down the "Play" button and waited. Eventually the software recognized the OPAL, and started to format it.
If you get a dialogue to restart the PC, press NO! You have to read the instructions that come with the install. Eventually I reformatted the drive, and installed new firmware.
BTW, there was no picture folder after I did this, so I just created a new folder named picture and it worked fine for the thumbnail pics I threw in there. Also when I use a MAC with the OPAL, I power the MAC up with the OPAL off but attached. After drag and dropping files into the OPAL, I power down the MAC. After power down the OPAL will after a pause give the "building databases please wait" messages, then when done go to the start menu. It is difficult on a MAC to eject the OPAL, it just reappears on the desktop so shutting down is the only safe way to administer the device. But to update firmware, which is easily corrupted BTW if you unplug the thing at the wrong time, you HAVE to do it on a PC operating system. Might work on an Intel MAC with a PC OS though.
Hope this helps.

RCA OPAL M4008 screen is blank and now it won't come on


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.
