No. The RCA Opal does not support playlists beyond the rudimentary "Favorites" that is built into the unit.

You must use a file interface to download mp3s from an Opal device before you try to upload them to a website. Be aware that DRM (copy-protected) files will probably not work on other computers or for people to download from a website.

If you cannot get a file interface to the Opal after plugging it into your USB port, have the unit serviced or replaced.

Good Luck!

How do i put videos on my opal mp3


Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).
  • Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
  • Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
  • Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
  • Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
  • Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
  • Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
  • Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.

    Can Download New Music


    The "My Selections" playlist? You have to delete the entire playlist. Or do you just want to get rid of old music on it? It's a plug and play device (on XP at least) and you can delete what you don't want from there.
