Tip & How-To about Insignia Sport MP3 Player
Here are some observations.
With the internal memory formatted by the player itself:
1) The player always has multiple malformed root directery entries that don't show up as files in Windows Explorer. Particually, the "Services" folder is slightly malformed. On some systems, the Services folder won't show up in Windows Explorer (like Windows 98).
2) Any memory formatted by the player whether intneral or a microsd card, will be completely missing a partition table.
If the internal memory is formatted by anything else other than the player itself:
1) The player will not be able to write the library database and user settings to the internal memory. The song and artist names will always be "Unknown" and "rebuilding library" every time the player is truned on. The library database and user settings files show up as multiple zero length files in the root directory, one with the same name for each time the player is turned on.
2) The Audible directory will be created and filled with many, many garbage files with garbage names with very big sizes that don't actually take up memory space.
3) Trying to use a microsd card that was formatted by anyhing else results in the player hanging when rebuilding library when it tries to scan the external microsd card. The player has to be shut off buy holding the power switch.
