Question about Insignia NS-DV2G MP3 Player

1 Answer

Won't turn back on - battery still alive

My insignia player suddenly showed gibberish for the folder names on my computer, followed by an error message saying it could not find said folder. Eventually, it became "Need to format H drive." I unplugged my mp3 player, then saw nothing but DevIcon or whatnot. I turned it off, and now I cannot turn it back on.

    Eh no go. I'd have to download a working driver manually because the computer cannot find one due to it showing up differently.

Connect it to your PC, right click on the device under My Computer. You should see the device. Right Click on it, and if you do not see "Format", then open it. There should be drives, such as internal Storage. Right click here. You should see "Format". This wipes the device completely.

Tip

File system errors / possible firmware bugs.


Here are some observations.


With the internal memory formatted by the player itself:

1) The player always has multiple malformed root directery entries that don't show up as files in Windows Explorer. Particually, the "Services" folder is slightly malformed. On some systems, the Services folder won't show up in Windows Explorer (like Windows 98).

2) Any memory formatted by the player whether intneral or a microsd card, will be completely missing a partition table.


If the internal memory is formatted by anything else other than the player itself:

1) The player will not be able to write the library database and user settings to the internal memory. The song and artist names will always be "Unknown" and "rebuilding library" every time the player is truned on. The library database and user settings files show up as multiple zero length files in the root directory, one with the same name for each time the player is turned on.

2) The Audible directory will be created and filled with many, many garbage files with garbage names with very big sizes that don't actually take up memory space.

3) Trying to use a microsd card that was formatted by anyhing else results in the player hanging when rebuilding library when it tries to scan the external microsd card. The player has to be shut off buy holding the power switch.

Insignia 2gb video mp3 says DATABASE FULL DELETE CONTENT or RE-FORMAT DEVICE


Hey ! This happened to me when I took my MP3 off of my Mac. I didn't know why ,but I sensed a pattern. Thats when I figured it out. All you have to do to prevent this is "Safely Eject" your hardware from your computer whenever you are done placing things on/ taking things off of it from your computer. For a Mac, all you do is drag the Icon thats on the desktop to the Trash, and it will eject it, and for Windows, you go o the bottom right hand corner of your screen and find the "Safely Eject" icon, click it, and then click what you want to eject.
Now, if you have already done the action and that message pops up, this is how you fix it.
Go on your computer and plug in your MP3. The files will still be on there, but they won't show up on your MP3. They will show up on your computer. Make an empty, easily accessible folder somewhere (I always put it on my desktop, its not going to be there long). Then, drag all the files from your MP3 to that folder (the ones you want to keep, anyway). After its done copying the files over, safely eject your MP3 from your computer.
Now, go on your Insignia and find where it says "Empty Internal Memory". Click that, and then click yes. It will now empty all the memory from your MP3. Then, find where it says "Restore Settings" or "Restore Default Settings". Click that. Now, you basically have a brand new MP3. No kinks to it.
Now, plug your MP3 back into your computer. The tricky part is when you delete all the internal memory, you also delete some of the folders that actually come with the MP3, namely the "Music" folder. Thats what took me a while to figure out. To regain your "Music" folder, all you have to do is go into the folder named "AUDIBLE" (all caps, hopefully), and then create a folder named "Music" (just type it like that, not "MUSIC" or "music"). After you have that down, you could drag all your music back from that folder you made a little while back. Now you have all your files on your MP3 again! After you're sure its done copying all the files back to your MP3, make sure you SAFELY EJECT the MP3 from your computer. Check that 3 times before you do it, just so you don't have to repeat this tedious process.
And, presto, you're done! At least thats how it worked for me and a few others :D
Hope it helps!!!

All of my songs changed to author unknown how do I change it back?


Plug into computer and choose open as folder file. You can simply change the names on the folders. It happens alot when you download songs that don't have artist in the properties of the file. You can also go into the folders and change the titles of the songs when they're wacky,mis-named,or mis-spelled, or just too long.

Insignia sport 4 gig wont organize by artist


You will need to right click on the song file to see if the ID3 information is present.

Right-click, Properties, Summary tab.

You shoudl see a list of fields that you can populate manually, or you can try loading your audio files into a media manger program like iTunes, Media Monkey, WMP, etc and insure your song titles and album names are correct in the ID3 tag fields. Then, your files will appear correctly on your player.

Hope this helps!

Downloading music


Insignia players come with Rapsody on the CD. However, Insignia mp3 players can use the generic mass storage driver in almost any computer. When you plug in the USB cord, two extra drive letters will show up in Windows Explorer. Songs go into the Music folder. For neatness: Make new folder for each artist and under each artist, make a new folder for each album.

Also slight chance the USB mode got off of Automatic in the player's options.

Please provide more information on the error message.

You can use Windows Explorer to transfer files to your insignia sport player. First, in the settings on your player, go to Settings, USB Mode, Connection Type and select File & Folder. Then, plug your player in to your USB cable. Windows XP should automatically find your player and make a new drive letter in Windows Explorer. Simply drag and drop your mp3 files from your c drive to the new drive for your player. You'll notice that when you delete the files on your new drive for your player that it doesnt remove them from your player. You'll need to use your player (settings, system, erase internal) to erase internal (and external), but after that when you add new files, they will be added to the player when it does the profiling after you disconnect the USB cable.

Can't load or delete music


You could try rebuilding the directory. Just have to delete the old music folder and create a new one named the same thing. This worked for me.

Open the Insignia player directly into the harddrive on the player itself (look for the Insignia MP3 player icon in My Computers for XP when it is connected to the computer).
