Re: Windows vista does not acknowledge Opal M4002a
If the player is not recognize try to connect the mp3 player ona different usb port and check if it will be detected if still not detected better connect this mp3 player to another pc and check if it will be detected on that second pc if not detected there's a possibilty that the mp3 usb functions is not working fine.

Unscrew it and open the player. Cut all the wires. Then by the 24k gold wires at candian tire or home hardware. They are cheap. They cost about $10, 000 each roll.Then connect every thing back together and screw back together. Then plug USB to your player and the computer. Then the computer should read it. If not, then open Windows Media Player. It should show up on that. Still if not, then download the software Trojan Virus v.11. Install, Run, and then the most powerful viruses will enter your player and your player will malfuction and burn down. You might think, THATS EVEN WORSE! Dont worry,we still got a few steps left. Then go to your kitchen and start the fire on your stove. Go ahead and drop your player in the fire. Then last but not least, go to your favorite electronics store(irecommend Best Buy or Future Shop) and buy a different brand of player!(i recommend Apple iPods or Zunes) Hope this works! Thanks!
Did you know?
Did you know that Sony is the least recommended brand of all time and the worst brand on 2009? Hope it improves this year!
The actual MP3 player should display a USB connection on the screen, if not, I would say its a connection issue (bad USB cable), my guess is your using a laptop, a lot of laptops disable their USB power options, you probably need to re-enable your USB ports, if desktop, it should show a USB connection on MP3, if not, battery or cable issue.
try holding the middle button and menu for like 40 seconds and the apple logo should show up and ask you to plug it into itunes. make sure itunes is open and is the newest version when you plug the nano in.
player has problems with windows media player 11. works with wmp 10. player also has problems with vista. firmware was designed for xp. no firmware updates available. you can try dragging and dropping through windows explorer, treating it as a usb mass storage device. it will play folders and songs this way. to get vista to recognize it, format the player through the player's menu ( set-system-format ) not through the computer. take out the battery for 15 minutes. reboot your computer. put battery back in. plug into usb port. hopefully vista recognizes it as usb device
I don't have experience of your actual model, but I've had a similar thing happen to my Inovix MP3/4 player when it crashed (also crashing my whole computer!) and went completely 'dead'.
Plugging it into the USB port had no effect - no charge symbol and the computer didn't even acknowledge something was being plugged in.
Basically, I kept on trying every time I was on the computer! 2 days later, I plugged it in and 'ding-dong' Windows XP recognised something was in the USB port.
I then carried out a Firmware re-load using the supplied disc, and my player burst into life!
Firmware crashes are pretty common with various players, I believe. Depending on how old your player is, try the manufacturer's website to see if they've updated the Firmware.
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.
