Question about Insignia NS-DV2G MP3 Player

2 Answers

My Insignia Sport Player MP3 says all music is Unknown?

I've had this Mp3 player for maybe 5 months, and never had any problems with it before. All of the sudden, after letting it sit somewhere for maybe only 2 hours, i turned it on to listen to it , and EVERYTHING is listed as "Unkown". My Pictures, My Music ,including the song name, album, and artist, And My Video's.

Everything still plays and show's it's just now listed as Unknown.

So i tried to delete everything off of it using Windows Media, but it showed that nothing was on the mp3 player. THERE WERE OVER 300 SONGS STILL ON THERE. After messing with it for a while, i was able to get into the file from start, and deleted everything.

IT showed that i had free space. Nothing was on the mp3. but when i turned it on, there were 26 songs still on there. Now, it wont even let me add music to the player. And when i did finally find a way to, as soon as i turned the player off then on again.. Everything went back to "Unknown"

PLEASE HELP ME, I DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY A NEW ONE!

I have a Phillips Go Gear Jukebox. (It's an old mp3.) It has a reset button, which basically, reformats the the thing. Deletes everything off and leaves it in a factory state. If you have something similar that might work.

I have the same problem with my RCA it occurs every so often. What I do is delete everything on there by useing he software that came with it and then change the mode from from MTP to MSC and back that way It formats it so Windows Media player( WMP) can see that it is really empty. Then I end the sync with the WMP and start a new sync. after that all I have to do is load the songs back on. This might not work for you since you have a different MP3, but if there is orginal software that came with it use that to delete. If you dont have any orginal software then you can still try to end the sync with WMP and see if that works.

hope this helps

How i transfer music from my insignia sport to my laptop


The Insignia Sport works just like a flash drive.

When you connect the sport to the laptop with a USB cable, you shoudl see a window asking what you want to do with the player. If not you can go to "My Computer" and see the player as another drive.

When you open the Insignia player you should see the music files and can transfer them off the player and onto your laptop.

If you are looking at transfering DRM (protected) music files, you should be able to transfer them but they will not play on a computer that was not authorized by the content provider.

Hope this helps!

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.
