I will get straight to the problem: I put the USB connector into the computer and then plug my MP3 in, only to see, for a split second, [USB Connected] flash on my player screen before disappearing. About three seconds later, it does it again. It shows no signs of progress and, after disconnecting it from the cord, it takes a few seconds for the normal start-up screen to chime in. Is there any way I can go about getting this to work with my computer?

You can reformate the player. plug it into the usb device of you computer and reformate with windows. Or you can run a virus scan through that drive it should say OPAL and have the aniti-virus program clean it for you.
Go to eBay,and look for the USB cable( About $ 4.00) for the iPod nano, it works for the Opal,I ordered one,and it is fine.It has a USB connector on one end,and the plug for the Opal.You plug one end where the earplugs go,and the USB connector on your computer.You have to let it charge at least for 3 hours.
Most laptops do not have a USB port that is powerful enough to fuel an mp3 player.
This player is not compatible with Vista or Mac
Make sure the hold/lock key is not engaged
Make sure your laptop USB port is enabled
Make sure you have Windows Media Player 10
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.
Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=187), the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it
off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the
USB port, then update the firmware.
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.
