Question about Insignia NS-DV2G MP3 Player
I bought a microSD chip for the expansion slot and loaded it up with music and videos.
When I turn on the MP3 player now it says "unable to format external memory"
On the computer, if I have it connected through USB, it only shows internal memory, so how can I configure external, I can't even access it!
Had the same problem - but with older Insignia NS-DV2G. Didn't want to buy a new bigger 4GB. Salesman at Best Buy today said I just needed a Macro SC card. Sold me a 2 GB. CAme home - downloaded new tunes, loaded it up in the Card reader and synced. Computer said everything went to the card fine. Turned on the Insignia and got same error as you - "Unable to format external memory". Huh? Thought maybe the memory was too much at 2GB. Had a smaller 256 macro card on hand. Reloaded music on that and stuck that it in Insignia. Same error message. Googled the problem and found your posts. Thought I was doomed. Drove the 20 miles BACK to Best Buy (read a total of 80 miles for two round trips) and two guys couldn't figure it out. Called for a third guy to come over and he turned the dial, pushed the button and all the new songs were there! Just like that. How in the world.............
With macro card inserted:
Go to SETTINGS.
Scroll to SYSTEM
Click on INITIALIZE
Click on YES.
At least it worked for me. Good Luck.

It is not letting me select "Yes" to initialize. Does anybody know what I can do?
