If you mean you can't put the MP3 files you downloaded onto the player, then you simply need to plug the player into a USB port on your computer -- either directly into the port (for some player models) or via an extension cable.
Once you've done so, the computer will "recognize" the player as a new disk drive, and assign a drive letter to it. Your computer will normally inform you via a pop-up, that it found new hardware.

Now just use Windows Explorer to drag and drop the mp3 files onto the new drive. This loads the files onto the player. Once the transfer is complete you can unplug the player, and it's ready to go.

Missil 1gb mp3

When the song is playing, hit the menu button. That should bring up the 'repeat' menu, and you can pick random from in there.

"MTP DB Mismatch Format?"

The Insignia NS-DA2G needs to be placed in File & Folder mode, and you'll need to have your mac show you all files on the device. Macs will create a smaller file that starts with "._" that contain very little information, but can cause problems with Windows based or Windows preferred devices. These files are not ignored by the PC or certain Windows optomized devices. You should erase these files for the unit to perform normally.

If you are unable to delete these files, you can re-format the device to FAT-32 and that will erase all information on the device. You shouls also hit the reset button (located next to the "HOLD" switch) for about 5-10 seconds to clear the internal settings.

My Sansa doesn't keep the new files I put on it

It sounds like there's a problem with writing to the flash card, in which case you'd have to replace the card inside the player.

Insignia 4MB MP3/video player

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.
