Question about Insignia Audio Players & Recorders
Ok - I've had this for almost one week, and ready to throw out the window. I've been on the phone with Best Buy, Insignia and Rhapsody. The box stated that it worked with Windows 95, 98, ME, and up. It may, but the Best Buy software does not.
I've got windows ME. I was finally told by one CS guru to copy and paste in windows ME instead of drag and drop. This works once. When I erase the player, and copy and paste, and then unhook and look at it, I've got the music. When I hook it back up to copy more music, the files are on the drive (when viewed in explorer, but not there when I try to play them (not showing up on the a track list, play list, etc.).
I've got XP at work, so I used the best buy software (not impressed with it) and got a bunch of music on there. But I"m not at work on the weekends. It seems that if I want to put any music on this player at home, I have to wipe it, change to file folder mode, and then I've got one shot?
Is there any music management software I can use at home, while in regular (not file folder mode) that I can continue to build my library that I created at work? I've tried media monkey, and while it works in file/folder mode, again I've only got one shot. After I unplug, check to see the files are there, which they are, and then plug back in again to transfer more music... again I can see it in Explorer but the mp3 player is not showing the music in the play list, artists, unknown... it is nowhere to be found. It is there, but I just cannot see it.
Ok, I admit - this is my first mp3 player. I'm ready to throw it out the window and sing to myself. HELP!!!
Wow, Windows Millenium edition was one of the worst operating systems that Microsoft ever made and was quickly changed to XP. I was on both Beta Teams.
Seriously, you need to upgrade to Windows 7, 8 or 10. You have no support and no AV. Upgrading your hardware and OS will see huge returns in functions and speed.
My only suggestion is to use Windows Media Player in Full Mode. Or use Apple iTunes (free) and pay their annual "I'll get music from where I please" fee, of IIRC $38.

When using your media player... you need to first figure out if you are using windows media player 9 or windows media player 10. Also what windows are you using on your computer, that makes a difference as well... Make sure you have the mp3 player plugged in properly and then...Once you are in your windows media player go to your lib tab... soon as you are in there then on the right side there should be section on where you could build a lib list. Meaning you should be able to pick the songs in your lib and just drag them over. On the bottom you should see something that says sync... Once you've choose your songs and dragged them over... all you should have to do is press the sync button and it will do all the work for you from there. And it should let you know when its complete...mine does. Hope I could help you.

SOURCE: Wont play Artist/Album
if the music was not odtained from a legal source then sometimes it will not sort itself out on the mp3 player, because the info on it is imcomplete, it will only show up on SHOW ALL SONGS, SONGS, or whichever the folder is that shows all the songs on the device.
