Question about Insignia Pilot MP3 Player

2 Answers

No menu I just bought this player from Amazon and I cannot get the menu to come up. It just plays the songs on the player that were on it when I got it, but I cannot do anything else. I can't even turn up the volume on it. I have tried to reset it to see if that would make the menu comu up, but nothing changes. I keep pushing the menu button, but no menu ever comes up. Does anyone have any ideas??

Here is a reset function you can try, although it will require erasing everything in the memory. I did this when my Insignia player froze up.

1. Press and hold the "select" button down. keep holding it while:
2. Slide the "on-off" switch to "off" and hold it there.

After a few seconds a menu will appear that says "erase memory?" or something to that effect. When it appears then...

In this order:
1. Immediately release the "on-off" switch
2. release the select button
3. Select "yes"
4. press select button again.

This should reset your unit without having to pull the battery connection. But it will erase everything..

I just bought a eclips model CLD2PL. I down loaded music and can not get it to play. It says that it is there but all I can get to play is the demo songs.

I am having the same issue! I bought 2 for each of my daughters. They both sync'd them to their computer through windows media; they both added songs the exact same way and only one of them actually PLAYS the songs. The other one says the songs are there; I can even see the file through the folders menu setting but when I select it they don't play???? If you or anyone happens to figure out why please let me know! Right now I am resorting to going through EVERY FILE and moving the songs to the main page and not under the Music Folder like it is on the other one!!

There will be a menu button on the right side of the player...when you click it you will be taken to the main menu...but when you press it for a while you will be taken to the menu where you can access your playlist and file navigator.

Swagger MP3 audio player does not hold a charge. I plugged it in overnight and could bearly play a song in the morning.

Most likely you have a full charge but the problem is FALSE Advertising! Swagger MP3 players only support MP3's downloaded from, any other MP3's will only play for a matter of seconds before shutting off. These players are a total rip off.

Hey - I found a solution - once you begin to play a file hit 'menu' and you will see a variety of choices - if you have selected 'intro' - guess what? it will play only 10 seconds of the selection. You must change the setting to normal in this screen. You will be able to tell because there is a little red box with a letter in it in the display screen when a file is playing. If the letter is 'i' - you are in intro mode - I just fixed mine
hope this helps
