Re: I can't download the software
Most MP3 players come preloaded with the software needed and performs an install automatically when connected although it is not needed for the player to work. It should appear as a removable drive in My Computer. You should be able to browse and discover the folder to place the music files in. Simply drag and drop your MP3s to this location.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Go to RCA and download the easy rip software. http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/
Or you can do it this way. ow to Add music to your mp3 player and deleate it.
This works with windows media player 10 and 11 only. Here is a link you can use and is most helpfull. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx After you go to the site mentioned above. You need to know a few terms that are used.
mp3 = player means DEVICE OR PORTABLE DEVICE addin Files = SYNCHRONIZING, SYNC, or SYNCING copying files = rip or ripping
Files stored on mp3 player or your computer is library this is only when mp3 player is connected to your computer.
Step one connect your mp3 device to usb of your computer. Step Two Open Windows Media Player (10 or 11). Step three Click on the icon of your mp3 player on left hand side of library Step four Click on songs,tracks, or other music folder. Step Five Find songs, or song the you want to get ride of (delete) Step Six lift click the song to high-light it. Step seven Press the delete button on your pc keybord.
Most mp3 you can drag and drop songs into the music folder.
Plug it into the usb device of your computer download the latest firmware from the RCA website. Keep mp3 plug in and then install the downloaded firmware do not unplug it while the firmware is downloading to the mp3 player
All u have to have is yahoo jukebox, thats the easiest way i think. Then just plug ur mp3 player into ur computer and it should pop up when u click the actions button on yahoo jukebox, then just drag the songs into the list and then hit "copy to portable device" and ur mp3 player should be listed there and then u can get the songs onto your player.
Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.
Use Windows Media Player to transfer music and delete songs
As far as downloading songs, you can sign up for a wide number of music services - each one has a different download method, and the company website will explain how to use it. The problem with this RCA player is that it was tied to Yahoo!'s Musicmatch Jukebox svc, which was cancelled in October 2007, so you will have to find another music service. Some music services will recognize the RCA player directly, and you can use their svc to download the songs directly to your player. Other services you will have to download the songs first, and then transfer them to the RCA using Windows Media Player afterwards.
Yahoo Unlimited does not download the songs directly to the Mp3 player - you must download the songs to the computer first, and then use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs from the computer to the player. Check your subscription for Yahoo Music - the lower level subscription does not allow you to transfer songs to an Mp3 player - you will have to upgrade the subscription. also, check the individual tracks - I cancelled Yahoo Unlimited because on many songs, you have to pay extra for the song even if you have purchased a subscription.
i had the same problem. and the answer made me so mad. turns out, you have to have yahoo unlimited TO GO in order to transfer the songs. i found this out after not only suscribing to y! unlimited but also downloading 400 songs! ugh. i still haven't found any service that works with it, and i've been searching all day.
Your RCA Opal is a plug and play device
1. Plug USB cord into Headphone Jack (you MUST use the USB that came with the RCA Opal)
2. Plug USB cord into computer
4. In my computer, it'll say "usb device" or "drive f" or whatever
5. Open "media" folder on that drive
6. And put your Mp3s on there.
if you can't do that, than you need to upgrade your computer. Not many MP3 players support ME.
