You don't need the installer- Windows Media Player will find the device, then click on "Sync" at the top to download the music to your player.

Go to "http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2559"
To update the firmware of the M42xx mp3 player click hereand download the firmware. start the firmware and when it is runninplug the M42xx in at the same time holding down the PLAY BUTTON(center) until a white screen with a small computerwith a line going to your M42xx is displayed and then release the PLAYbutton. You can then click on start and the firmware update willcomplete,,, DO NOT DISCONNECT DURING THIS UPDATE... it may take 2 timesto complete this but it will work.... YEA!!!! WORKS with 2, 4 or 8 GBModels.....

I Tried the above...initially it didn't work, but then i tried it 2 or 3 times, and tried by connecting it while the "initializing", and then tried it after turning it off and then suddenly it came to life...just try some stuff it just might work...i.e after u download the firmware. Credit goes to the guy posted the original thing.

Turn your player on and go to settings. Scroll down the menu until you see "PROTOCOL" and switch it from MSC to MTP. Your computer will now recognize your device, and you will be able to add whatever you want to it.

Also, try to leave it plugged in overnight, then reset it the next day. It can take up to 8 hours to charge if it is completely drained.

How do i dowload music to my opal M4208GR


Manual for RCA Opal M4208GR:
http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/manuals/M4208GR/media/M4208GR_DOC_OM.pdf

This player has default setup MSC mode, seeing the player as a flash drive also called a removable disk.
MSC = Mass Storage Class
When seeing the player as a removable disk in Windows Explorer:
Drag and drop the song, with mp3 or wma format, into the Music folder on the player.
Note: some wma files may have DRM = Digital Rights Management. These files might be copied or transferred onto the player but cannot be started for playback.
Important: in MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk, at the bottom right corner of the task bar.

Transfers to the player can also be done with software like Windows Media Player 11, RCA easyRip or other software from music stores.
This can be done in MTP mode. MTP = Media Transfer Protocol.
How to switch to MTP mode, seeing the player as Media device:
In the players Menu go to Settings. Go to Protocol. Select MTP mode / switch from MSC mode to MTP mode.

I have a rca mp3player that will not turn on the number is m4208gr-b


RCA M4208

Make sure the lock switch on the back is in the unlocked position. For the player to say "Loading," especially the first time you plug it into the computer, is normal - your computer is communicating with the player, installing drivers, and trying to load the Easy Rip Software. If it stays on loading past 10 minutes, however, something is not right. If you have selected to open the device automatically using Windows Media Player, you are headed for trouble, especially if you have more music and other files on your computer than the mp3 player can handle. If you have accidentally done this, disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player.
If you have checked the above, and you are still having problems, disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Hold in the power button for 10 seconds or more to reset the mp3 player. Try plugging the mp3 player into the computer again. If it stays on loading for more than 10 minutes, unplug the mp3 player, go into the settings menu and change the mode from MSC to MTP or vice versa. If it still misbehaves when you replug the mp3 player into the computer, download the latest Easy Rip software from RCA's website and update your player's firmware - take note of the section they have on Windows Vista if you have Windows Vista. Good luck!

RCA M4208GR total frozen


Unplug the RCA from the computer. Uninstall all RCA software and then reinstall it. Then replug the RCA into the computer.

If that fails, try using the volume + instead of the menu button.
