What type of video file is compatible with the insignia mp3 player?
Are such files readily available on the internet and if so where?
I have been told it can take as much as 20 hours to download a movie. Is this true and if so why? Any way of speeding this up?
Can you copy your favorite DVD's without the specter of jail time looming over you?
As you can tell I know absolutely nothing about the technology other than how to turn it on and off.......oh and it is a great gadget to have when you are sitting on the airport floor in Jamaica for three hours waiting to board!

i have insignia 2 gb mp3 player and i dont havesupport software to open it as i want to change songs it give error as
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."
Actually that might be possible. If you're downloading movies in the proper format already all you would have to do is choose the file destination correctly. In this case the destination My Computer:E or F(depending on your installed drives):SomeFolderName:
So if you're downloading movies with let's say LimeWire or some other P2P software you can actually set the file destinations for each type of file as well and so long as your device is plugged in at the time that is exactly where the file(s) will be saved.
I'm not sure that this will work for every type of mp3 player, but on an Insignia you have a few options. One is that you can download and figure out how to work a system like Rapsody, which should usually work okay but it's sort of a hassle if you don't have it already. What I would recommend is to (make sure you've first plugged your mp3 into your computer) open the video file. You can do this by 1) go to your start menu, 2) double click on "My Computer", 3) double click "Insignia Video Player", 4) open the internal memory, and open the video file (labed "videos"). Then once you have that file opened you can just copy and paste your video from it's home file to your video file.
Sorry that this explanation was so long, but I wanted to make it pretty clear. This usually works IF THE VIDEO IS IN A SUPPORTED FORMAT.
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.
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!
You'll need to erase the internal and external memory, then re-add all your files.
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 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.
