Its actually an rca opal M4008


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

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.

Formatting the device will not solve the boot error you are getting..thats a firmware problem..get the firmware update and that should solve the problem you are having..

The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player.
If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the WindowsTM format command on the unit. To reformat the memory
  1. Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
  2. Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
  3. Reinstall the firmware from http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/opal_fwutility_v2.3.0.exe

Video will not load


You do have the disc? you have to use a program on the disc that converts videos into "smv"...it's on the disc, one of the options on the splash install menu.
