Rca opal M4008A

My Rca Opal lithium battery will only play for 4 hours, it is supposed to playback up to 15 hours. I have a 8GB with over 800 songs on it and I can only listen for 4 hours before I have to charge it again. Is the battery replaceable? Am I doing something wrong? Did I format my songs correctly? Please let me know, I paid alot of money for it.
Thanks
Vicki

In order:
*The battery life specs listed by the manufacturers are based on ideal laboratory conditions, and are almost never right. (You'll also notice that you don't actually have a full 8GB's, and that it doesn't take as long to charge the unit as the manual suggests. And the big one - this player will not fit as many songs on it as the manual suggests.)
*Four hours is not unusual. Sounds about right.
*The battery is not replaceable on this particular unit.
* If you can listen to your songs, they are formatted correctly. Mp3-format songs take up less space than wma's, so you can fit more mp3 on a player than wma's, usually.

The player seems to me to be operating normally.

How to stop playback on rca opal 4gb.


That particular player is designed to work that way. Apple made one of their iPods in exactly that fashion, and other manufacturers' mp3 players quickly followed suit. You can pause it but you can't stop it. If you want to change songs, or the order in which they play, you can hit the "M" button and select songs/options from the menu of the RCA.

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (http://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.
