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.

Plug it into a USB port on your computer. If it doesn't open on the screen, click Start, click Computer and locate your devise on the list of drives and discs, right click on the devise name then left click Open on the drop-down menu. The device files should display. You can then drag and drop any music files to any folder on your PC, normally your Music or My Music folder.
Install the Windows driver included in the product package

CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load
automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.

Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.

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!
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!
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.
