The start button to begin the upgrade enables ONLY when the player is detected, which is the problem.

any other suggestions?

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.

    How do you add videos on a RCA Opal?????


    alright, its pretty easy all you have to do (if your using a windows based computer) is go to the start menu in the bottom right hand corner and go to My Computer. If your opal is plugged in with the mini-usb it will show up in the disk drive part of the window that opens. double click it and youll see the folders...drag the videos to the Videos folder

    "My Computer" won't detect Opal


    1. you should have your opal plugged in when your doin something with your opal on your computer. i got a question have you ever dropped your opal? you might need to take it to a mechcanic so it can get fixed or exchange it for a new one.
