Question about Insignia NS-DV2G MP3 Player

Insignia Pilot doesn't always recognize music files

At times, when I drag and drop mp3 files from my computer to the Insignia Pilot, it will not recognize them.  I can see they're on the Pilot but when I disconnect from the computer, the Pilot doesn't show these files and I can't access them even though they're on the player.  Once when this happened, I erased internal memory and put the mp3 files back on.  The Pilot worked o.k. for a while but then went back to not recognizing some files that I added.

1) Back up all your files on the player.
2) Re-format the player in windows as either FAT16 or FAT32 (no this will not remove the OS firmware).
3) Place your files back onto the player.

The volatile memory on these units can become corrupted if your USB connection is underpowered, split too many times, or has a few devices also drawing power.

This should fix your problem.

Good luck!

    Download ITUNES to a regular MP3 player.

    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.

    Open iTunes.

    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!

    Itunes and insignia pilot

    All of your Itunes music is held in a specific target folder. In the folder options (somewhere on Itunes :P) is the location of this folder. These are simple files that can be put on a cd, copied, or put into another folder to be put on your insignia player. Hope this helps!

    Can not add music

    You cant drag and drop from Windows Media Player or Real Player, you have to go to the location on your computer where the audio files are stored *example - 'My Music' folder under 'My Document', copy and paste the songs from that location. Make sure the audio files are MP3 or Unprotected Windows Media Audio files as that is all this unit accepts.

    Lost cd to insignia player 1gb

    There shouldn't be any driver software on a CD for this player. If you need the Digital Music Store, go here:

    If your computer is still able to recognize the player, you can still manually place music files on the player by switching the player to File&Folder mode.
