SOURCE: Transferring music to Insignia MP3 player

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.

You'll need to erase the internal and external memory, then re-add all your files.

You can use Windows Explorer to transfer files to your insignia sport player. First, in the settings on your player, go to Settings, USB Mode, Connection Type and select File & Folder. Then, plug your player in to your USB cable. Windows XP should automatically find your player and make a new drive letter in Windows Explorer. Simply drag and drop your files from your c drive to the new drive for your player. You'll notice that when you delete the files on your new drive for your player that it doesnt remove them from your player. You'll need to use your player (settings, system, erase internal) to erase internal (and external), but after that when you add new files, they will be added to the player when it does the profiling after you disconnect the USB cable.

SOURCE: INSIGNIA MP3 PLAYER

I had this problem also and I think I figured it out because now my music will play. I took the songs I had from limewire, highlighted them all and clicked "save as", opened it with windows media player and on wmp I took my playlist and named it on there....first I synched the songs under "sync" and they would upload on my player but they would NOT play. I got the same stupid error message. So after they were uploaded onto my mp3 player, i dragged all of the songs onto the right side to make a sync list AGAIN and clicked start sync, all of the files said "already on device" so I kind of got mad thinking it still didn't work...when I unplugged it and tried to play the song, they ACTUALLY PLAYED. I fought with this for so long and contemplated about throwing the stupid thing down the toilet but for whatever reason, synching it in two different ways in that order, it worked and it stopped saying "error:can't open this file"...hope this works for you and anyone else having this problem because I know how frustrating this got for me. hope this helps. Good luck!!!

Skips and doesn't play CDs


I'm guessing this is a CD player?

Try to open the lid and with your finger (without touching the laser lens) move the lens toward the outside edge. Sometimes the gears that move the laser skip and this will re-set it. If not try cleaning the lens with an alcohol cleaner.

My technics eh770 cd player is skipping so i now can't play cds


If the laser pickup is skipping, it is near end of life. Buy a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if there is no change the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair far cheaper to replace player.

My cd player skips


there are a few options
maybe your cd player is on an unstable surface and so the cd skips from vibrations or movements so you will need to put it on a stable surface free from movement or rumbles so that the cd player can read the cds without any interference.
Also maybe your lens is dirty or your cds are dirty or scratched, in which case her's what you can try:

1) buy a cd lens cleaning kit from a music shop or electronics store and clean the lens
2) but if the cd player is quite old then there may be a build up of dust and dirt inside so you will need to get it cleaned professionally

If the cds are dirty then clean using a soft cloth from the inside to the outside edge in a straight line

if the cds are scratched then buy new cds and treat them with respect. Make sure you don't put grubby fingers on the surface and try to handle them by just putting your finger through the middle hole and the outside edge with clean hands. and remember to put them back in the case and not leave them on the side or on the floor or stacked in piles

good luck

My Insignia CD player says there's no disc when there is.


Try a lens cleaner. Also, ensure that your disks are clean. If you're playing CD-Rs, make sure that the disks have been finalized properly. If the problem persists, you may carry the unit in to the place of purchase to pursue service options.

Yamaha CDC-765: sometimes skips when playing CDs


The problem is in the laser for sure. Try cleaning with a cd cleaning tool. It's the easiest solution because changing the laser is not always available solution.

Aiwa xr-ms5 cd recognition problem


If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean. Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function. good luck :-)
