Question about Insignia NS-DV2G MP3 Player

Open Question

DEVICON.FIL This file pops up on my insignia mp3 player of it's own accord whenever it damn well feels like it. My whole mp3 freezes and the lights for the screen and buttons won't even go off_ I usually have to wait for it to run out of batt. b4 I can get it going again. It happened first after a month or 2 but is becoming more and more frequent. I'm fairly confident there may be another file other than devicon.fil- i"ve only ever seen it once and i wasn't able to copy it down but I'm worried there may be more files like devicon now... (**** for turning mp3 off during devicon.fil freeze*** I've found the only thing you can possibly do when the mp3 freezes is to just go as if to turn the mp3 off and keep holding it until it shuts off- I've only gotten it to work once and shortly after turning it back on- it will freeze again.) BTW I figured out how to erase all that junk on the device_ i apologize for wasting your time, I guess I was being lazy since I saw someone who had posted the same help request.

Okay...here we go!

1) Back up all your files on the player.
2) Re-format the player in windows as either FAT16 or FAT32 (no this will not remove the OS firmware).
3) Place your files back onto the player.

The volatile memory on these units can become corrupted if your USB connection is underpowered, split too many times, or has a few devices also drawing power.

This should fix your problem.

Good luck!

Connect it to your PC, right click on the device under My Computer. You should see the device. Right Click on it, and if you do not see "Format", then open it. There should be drives, such as internal Storage. Right click here. You should see "Format". This wipes the device completely.

  1. My first suggestion is you take your player to a different pc install the driver over there and connect it after installing the driver. Let the plug and play devices do its work. Check whether your files are visible on that PC or not.
  2. Change the data cable you are using for a while and then recheck on different pc.
  3. If none of the above works even for browsing your file then follow the following
  4. Hit the player's reset hole on the side with a paper clip (or similar object) to reset the player. Check to see if the problem goes away.
  5. If the problem persists, restart your computer.
  6. Try another USB port.
  7. If the above didn't help, format the player by using the format option in your 'Advanced Setting', than try again.
  8. If formating doesn't help, try restore your PC setting to the last known good setting or restore point (Windows XP/Vista).
  9. Try uninstall WMP11, than reinstall it back with a full copy downloadable via Microsoft.
  10. Check whether the player shows up in 'My Computer', than try it on another PC (with WMP11 installed) to confirm that your player is still fine.
You are most welcome if none of the above works for you. They have been written specially for you in the pattern in which you shall troubleshoot kindly don't break the pattern. If at any moment you seem hesitant don't hesitate asking me. I'm available for you for another hour. Will be checking your comments every 5 minutes.
Mahendra.
