I would just wipe your songs off and see if that solves your problem. if not, i wouldnt want to format.
if its not too big of a problem, use it wil the virus.
Insignia has not released an updated firmware or even a link to download firmware for the 4gig and 8gig models.
once they do you can format and re-install the firmware but as for now your pretty much SOL.
Here is the link to insignias website for the 8gig Model: http://www.insignia-products.com/pc-289-22-insignia-pilot-8gb-video-mp3-player-with-bluetooth-technology.aspx

Hope this helps,
:)

How to remove a virus??


One thing you can do is connect the mp3 player and right click on the icon, when the menu appears click on scan with: (antivirus) and let the scanner run all the way, it will show the infected files, go ahead and remove them. Sometimes the auto start file is detected as a virus because it is an executable file.
the other way is for you to format the mp3 player, same way right click on the icon and select format. with this you have to be careful because sometimes the firmware is hard to reinstall on the device.


if it works for you, don't forget to rate me

Computer cannot detect mp3 player


If the level of infection by the virus is high, you can try repairing the OS by using the OS cd. You wont loose any installed program if repaired. But the virus will be in dead state after repairing. Then install a good anti virus and do a computer scan. This is the best way to get ride of severely infected virus. The problem you have can be because the virus may have corrupt the mp3 player's exe file

No memory availability is appearing .it's showing 0kb memory


I using T sonic 840.
I found the reason for this.

I think you used transferred the songs/ videos from the computer, which had Windows operating system.

Windows has the high possibility to attack your T sonic by means of Viruses and worms.

So, first take a back up of your songs/videos/photos/text documents.
then format it.

Now download the songs/videos/photos/text documents. and before removing your device.
Scan for virus. If you find any virus fix that virus.

Now you cannot see the 0kb free space.


Cheers...!!!

If I virus attacked your player (none has, I'm pretty certain) you could reset it. More probably your firmware or memory is defective and the only solution is to exchange it.
