I had this problem also and I think I figured it out because now my music will play. I took the songs I had from limewire, highlighted them all and clicked "save as", opened it with windows media player and on wmp I took my playlist and named it on there....first I synched the songs under "sync" and they would upload on my player but they would NOT play. I got the same stupid error message. So after they were uploaded onto my mp3 player, i dragged all of the songs onto the right side to make a sync list AGAIN and clicked start sync, all of the files said "already on device" so I kind of got mad thinking it still didn't work...when I unplugged it and tried to play the song, they ACTUALLY PLAYED. I fought with this for so long and contemplated about throwing the stupid thing down the toilet but for whatever reason, synching it in two different ways in that order, it worked and it stopped saying "error:can't open this file"...hope this works for you and anyone else having this problem because I know how frustrating this got for me. hope this helps. Good luck!!!

Protected mode on songs

Some (most) WMA and AAC files are protected and some are unprotected - you cannot "unprotect" them, except by downloading illegal-to-use software such as Tunebite.

To avoid a future recurrence of this problem, only load songs that are in mp3 format onto your player. They are all unprotected.

Wont copy songs to mp3 player because of write protection

To adjust the copy protection setting on your ripped music files,
  1. Open the Tools tab at the top of your Windows Media Player.
  2. Select Options and then select the Rip Music tab.
  3. Under this menu, you will be able to choose the type of music file as well as the quality with which you would like to save the music.
  4. Make sure the box next to Copy protect music is left unchecked.
Your GPX player has the ability to play music files in both the MP3 and WMA format. Make sure to use MTP when transferring copy-protected WMA files.

My insignia NS-2v17b MP3 player will only play 3 songs. The other 56 songs downloaded on it are skipped. While trying to go between songs the MP3 player will beep several times. I counted and it beeps for...

Yes. You have to have an active account to keep listening to those songs. On another note (no pun intended) anything that you OWN in your music files will play for you.
I quit the subscription from Best Buy, deleted the songs I didn't own and now I am satisfied.

Download ITUNES to a regular MP3 player.

First off...I'm sorry. This isn't going to be super-simple or automated.

The Insignia MP3 players play MP3 and WMA audio files only (okay...and audio books). If you have a pretty nice collection of unprotected music files that you have purchased from iTunes, then you'll be able to do this conversion.

The Insignia player will not sync with iTunes...the program and the player are not compatable. You do not need to use Windows Media Player to load music on your Insignia player.

Here's the process:

Set your Insignia player to Mass Storage or "File & Folder". This makes it look like another drive to the computer.

Open iTunes.

Navigate to the Options or Preferences area (it's different depending on whether you use a Mac or a PC), select the BURN tab and set the file format to MP3 and the quality rating you desire (I suggest either 128kb or 192kb).

Select the songs you want to put on your player.

Tell iTunes to "Conver to MP3" the songs you have selected.

Once these files are copied as MP3s, Navigate to the iTunes folder (should be in My Documents/My Music/iTunes). I reccommend placing a shortcut to your iTunes folder on your desktop for future use.

Drag and Drop your music files to your Insignia player.

You're good to go. Unplug the Insignia player and enjoy!

If you synchronize your Mp3 player with you rmedia player, you might get a message on your mp3 player telling you to subscribe. So try to get your music files and drag and drop or copy and paste onto your device.

I hope this helps you out

My SA6025 damaging mp3 files!

Make a note of skipping tracks & check these tracks play ok on the PC - this will rule out corrupted tracks.
Skipping of entire tracks can be due to DRM copy protected tracks (purchased on-line). Some players will not play DRM tracks.

You can check for protected tracks.
  • In Windows Explorer, go to the folder where the tracks are stored on your PC.
  • Click on View -----> Details
  • Right click on the header bar in the right hand window and select protected. (If protected is not listed click on More)
  • Tracks will be listed with No or Yes under protected. Check your skipping tracks are listed as No, under protected.
If none of this helps, install and run the Philips Device Manager. Select the repair / restore option and follow the on-screen prompts. This will format the player, ruling out a corrupt file system on the player, and re-load the firmware.

Player skips over some songs

MP3 files are not a totally homogeneous group. You have different bitrates, and different codecs that output MP3s, let alone all the MPCs and the likes. You should check what your player's recommended bitrate is, and try to find what is common with the MP3s it can't play. Maybe you get them from the same source. If you rip a cd, and output it to MP3 files, my bet is that either all or none will work, there is no randomness here. The only other option is that the files got corrupted somehow, and the player can't read them. Good luck

Mneumonic skips over songs

MP3 players i have seen so far are only able to play WMA,Wav,MP3 files. Other files are skipped. Also, there arent many MP3 devices that can play DRM protected Files. Your might be it.
