Question about Insignia IN-MP3256 MP3 Player

Insignia 4MB MP3/video player

So I bought this player a week ago and it was doing fine. I had about 150 songs downloaded on it. Yesterday i tried to add a couple of songs and when I unplugged the device from my computer EVERYTHING was gone. Now it wont take any songs at all. I cant figure out what the deal is and was hoping someone might have some ideas. Thanks!

File allocation table on your player is corrupt. try to use the following method to transfer files from your player to your c drive... else... all is gone...

You can use Windows Explorer to transfer files to and from 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 to/from your c drive to the new drive for your player. You'll notice that when you use Windows explorer to delete the files on your new drive for your player that it doesnt remove them from your Music Library on 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.

How many songs can I expect to load on the 2gb Insignia NS-DV2G?


It should be able to collect about 666 songs if the song's size is 3mb.

To calculate it your self; 2gb is the same as 2000mb. So divide 2000 by 4 or 3 depending on the size of the song and this would give you the exact amount.

Take for example, if the songs are 4MB, then you would divide 2000MB(2GB) by 4 which will give you 500. That's it would take 500 songs if the songs are 4MB each.

Take care.

THE SONGS SAY UNKNOWN


Insignia mp3 players are a little buggy in that they occasionally get file system problems that cause strange things like this to happen. First backup your songs from the mp3 player, and select "erase internal memory". That actually reformats the memory. Then put your songs back on the mp3 player. If it still doesn't work, please advise.

Also slight change your mp3 files are not "tagged" by whatever cd ripper or encoder or place you bought or downloaded them from.

Trying to Load Video from Amazon Unbox - Help


The file extension is usually *.avi on Insignia players. So try renaming the file.

I need da cd


Hi,
Have you tried contacting Insignia. They may provide you with a download link for the drivers/software you need.

You should be able to connect your player even without the software. Windows should detect it once the USB is plugged in. Just drag and drop the songs you want onto the device.

I can't Download Videos on my insignea any more..


One possible cause for this is improper format of the video file. I just got an Insignia Pilot, and the player is very specific as to the format of the video files it will play. I'd recommend taking the video files you want to add, and converting them using the Arcsoft Media software that came with the player. I have to run all of my video files through the conversion process before the player will recognize them. Hope this helps!

Device keeps shutting off by itself and won't synch


Make sure the songs are in the right format. Napster is a real bear about disappearing songs - try another music svc.
