Re: Opal Flash MP3 Player Stuck at initializing..
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.

I had this problem. I had to really try several different things to get the software to recognize the mp3 player. RCA does have download software that will format your MP3 player and put the firmware on the player. It would be better to get the firmware on without formatting if you have files already on it. Just be sure that you get the screen that shows it is connected to USB.
IF the mp3 is stuck on initializing your firmware went bad. You need to go to the RCA website. http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/ search your make and model. download the firmware for it. After the firmware is download plug mp3 player in usb device of your computer. Then install the firmware.
If stuck on initilizing then firmware went bad. You need to go to RCA website download the latest firmware. After you download the firmware. plug in mp3 player to your usb device of pc. After its plugged in install the firmware. While its installing windows should find the palyer. Leave it plugged in for about 1 hour to give the battery time to charge a little.
