MP3 Insignia is Frozen

I bought my MP3 a month or two ago. I was running on the road, listening to the music with the MP3 on my armband. The music stopped playing mid-song, so i stopped and looked at it and the screen reads "Rebuilding the Library please wait...." and it is frozen on this screen. I can not do a thing with it, even trying to turn it off and it still reads this. There is no manual for this MP3, I checked for it. It is a Insignia MP3 NS-4V17. Please help me so i can get back to enjoying my music on my runs. Thanks for your time.

well i synchronized some music and when i was finished i tryied to listen 2 it and it said build library.. and it frezes on 378 even if i turn it on and back on it builds the brary and frezes on the same #.

    I have the same issue. The holding power button worked for me as well. I tried that before, but not for 15 seconds. Thanks.

I cant even plug it into the computer... i lost all pics that were on it, all music that was on it, everything. Anyone have any ideas, because it has me pretty pissed.

Yeah, if you hold the power button for about 15 seconds it should work. I just had the same problem as you guys and it fixed it.

You have to hold it down for 10-20 seconds, then it should turn off and work normally.

The screen frozen

If you hold the power button for 20 seconds it will shut off. Leave it off for about 1 minute, then turn it back on & it will hopefully work.

My computer wont recognize my USB


Try the following steps:

Resetting the device:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

NOTE: Resetting will turn the player off while it is frozen.

If that doesn't work, then you may download and install the Sansa Firmware Updater and update to the latest firmware.

MP3 Player is frozen

It sounds like you have a corrupted file. The solution would be to either locate the file that your MP3 Player is freezing on and delete it or format your mp3 players drive.

I want to get a replacement CD for Insignia NS-DA2G

This player does not allow multiple sync parters to prevent piracy. If you are syncing it to a new computer you must re-initialize the player and erase the songs.

Wish the News was Cheerier.

Unscrew the back and gently pull out the battery then plug it back in. That should work.

Ok, What we need to do is do a simple test. First hold the power button for 15-20 seconds, then hold the centre enter button for 15-20 seconds. Keep doing this and it should reset!
