If you are dragging and dropping files, try copy/paste ONE AT A TIME! Wait until one is finished copying, then drag another... and when it's full DO NOT UNPLUG IT! Use the windows eject icon in the system tray (by the clock) to eject the I/O device or it will wipe it all out and say format.

This is because the songs literally cannot fit onto your player. Songs, like all files, take up a certain amount of digital space. Craig MP4 players generally are small in space, usually ranging from 1-4GBs, which will not get you far if you have a lot of songs. The only real solutions for this without buying a new MP3/MP4 player is to be more selective with the songs you put onto it. There is not a way to change the amount of songs something can hold, so you just have to put less onto it. Also, If you put videos onto it, get rid of those first because videos take up way more space than songs.
If you want more space, I would recommend a 8GB or 16GB music player, those are satisfactory for most people with a lot of songs.
Also, for now you could try downgrading the audio quality, which will reduce the file size, effectively making more songs able to fit onto your player, but I would not recommend this because it does create a noticeably worse audio quality.
There are some mp3 songs that you can add to the iTunes Library but not to the iPod
This is a format issue i believe
if this its your case you should try to get again the mp3 or burn it from th CD again an then try to upload to the iPod
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.
this is a no brainer.....first thing I did was set up (formatted) the player with the disk drive utility supplied with mp3 player. Next you add in your MP3 songs. Turn on your player and with the mode button...go to MSC it will be highlighted black....then press in mode button to enter folder. Songs shouls be seen....and press power button to start.
