    When connected to PC charges, screen lights up, can be seen in Explorer & stuff can be dragged to it. Says "Ok to disconnect" but will NOT turn on after disconnecting it, black screen. Tried removing battery & resetting through the little hole on the side to no avail! I guess I now have a bulky 1gb flash drive...

Check your battery. Make sure it's installed in the correct direction and that the very small tab is opposite the USB and headphone jacks. Be sure the battery contacts (all 3) are making contact with the power tabs. You might want to use a small tool and pry the contacts out slightly.

If you're getting power and connection with a PC, but not when disconnected, then it's sounding like a battery issue.

For Sakuhime, the player might need to be re-formatted to FAT-32 with your PC. However, if your firmware has been damaged, that's a bigger problem. If the unit is out of warranty, its a brick. What operating system you are using on your computer is also important. This unit is best supported when using Win XP with SP2. It will work with other OS's (like OSX 10.0.0 and up), but XP is the preferred choice.

My Insignia NS-BTHDP headphones don't have a red charge light anymore. The first charge out of the pack had the red light on. But now the red light doesn't come on anymore. I wonder if it is really...

The LED may have just gone bad. Keep using it untill the battery dies, then try charging it and use it again. If it works as it should it means the LED died and there is nothing to worry about, if not you may need to replace the battery.

Insignia sport 4gb

reset the player. You will lose all of your songs that are on the player and have to re-add them.
If it is still acting up, take it back to the store and exchange it. I had this problem many times.
