|Connecting to your Computer:
- Connect the player to your computer with the USB cable provided. The player will turn on automatically.
- The player will be connected in MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode. It will appear as a drive letter on your computer and behave as a detachable drive for file transfer in one or both directions.
- The RCA easyRip Media Software installer (stored in the player*) will launch automatically. Click Next to begin the installation and follow the instructions to install the software on your PC.
- The software installer can be deleted from the player after installation to free up more storage spaces.
- To enable function of launching RCA easyRip installer stored in the player, the player must be in MSC mode which can be selected under Protocol in the Settings menu. The default setting of this player is MSC mode.
- It might take several seconds for the player to be detected. Click Refresh in My Computer or Windows Explorer to make sure the player has been detected.
- The player is capable of transferring files at USB 2.0. If USB 2.0 port is available on your computer, use it to connect to your player. The player is still backward compatible with the older USB 1.1 ports. However, you will not be able to take full advantage of the potential speed increase.
- Important: Don't disconnect the USB cable to the PC or the player during the software installation.
- If the installer does not auto-launch, locate and right-click the associated drive letter (i.e. OPAL) to show the option menu and select the "Install RCA easyRip" option.
Charging the Player:
- Your player charges through the USB connection when it is connected to your computer. To fully charge the player, make sure your computer is on and the player is connected for at least 3 hours. Refer to the battery level icon on the display to check the battery level. Recharge the player when the icon is empty.
MP3 players are only tested through the computer via the USB cable, so that is the only way we support charging the player.
Risks of charging the player with a universal charger:
- If you try a universal charger, it would be at your own risk.
- If you get a universal charger that produces too much power, it could damage the player.
- Normally the computer can sense when the player is fully charged, if you use a universal charger and it sends over a contact charge even after the battery is full, it can also damage your player.
Disconnecting from your Computer:
If Windows sees the player as an MTP device:
- Unplug the player from the PC when no file transfer is in progress.
If Windows sees the player as a removable disk:
