Question about Insignia NS-DV2G MP3 Player

1 Answer

Can't open downloaded files off Media Player 11 off new pc with Vista installed.

I recently bought a new pc with the Vista operating system. I installed my software for my Insignia onto it. Media Player 11 will download my music choices but when I try to play them back, I get a message that my Insignia can't open the file. I have no problems downloading and playback when I install off my old pc with XP installed on it. But all my music is now on my new pc. Is it the operating system or could Media Player 11 not be compatable with my Insignia? I have Media Player 9 on my old pc.

    Well. I solved my problem by experimentation with my pc (Vista operating system) and my Insignia. I had ALL the problems that I saw posted on here; froze after downloading from my Media Player, won't turn off, reverting back to start up screen and the main issue with mine, ERROR player can't open this file. Folks, I've got to tell you. I transferred my music files from my old PC (XP system) using a flash drive and this was a BAD choice. The online music provider won't let me use the files on my Insignia (not sure about other manufacturers), and FROZE up the player itself. I've had to delete EVERYTHING off both and start over from scratch, reinstalling CD by CD into my pc. Don't change the settings on the Media Player 11 that comes with Vista, as anything other then Windows Media Audio for your format and nothing other then 64 kbs (default setting) for your bit rate, or you will receive ERROR: Can't open this file. We are all 3 very happily coexisting now. And I hope my solution will help you with your's.

I do not have the Vista setup disk for my inovix IMP 5750. Where can I download it from?


HI,

Unfortunately there is no vista software available for your mp3 player.

If you are looking a way to transfer music to your player then you can use the Windows media player 11 which is available in vista operating PC.

You can open windows media player 11 and click on SYNC>click on search devices and make sure your player is connected to the pc.It will search for your player and then you will be able to transfer music by just doing a simple drag and drop.I mean dragging the music from the wmp11 library list to the right side of the SYNC.

Player Problem, Connect to PC, Start Device Manager


Make sure you are using Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10. If you are using Windows Vista, then the player is not compatible. If you are using Windows Media Player 11 then you will need to uninstall it to roll back to version 10. Problem sounds like one or more system files have been deleted or corrupted on the player, possibly by formatting the player from windows.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager and select the Repair / Restore option. Follow the on-screen prompts. The Device Manager is on the product CD. It should be installed along with the drivers for the player. If you still can't find it, follow this link to download it: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=GB&slg=ENG&mid=Link_Software&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA&sct=HDD_AUDIO_JUKEBOX_SU&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR&session=20080303095703_86.155.41.177&ctn=HDD075/17&dct=FUS&did=ENG&file=/files/h/hdd075_17/hdd075_17_fur_eng.htm

This will format the device and re-load the system files.

ALL FILES WILL BE DELETED FROM THE DEVICE. Back up files before restoring.

Philips HDD6330/17 suddenly not recognized by Vista


Check which version of Windows Media Player you have loaded.
Open Windows Media Player. Click "Help" and "about". This should show which version you have.
Windows Automatic Updates may hve updated to version 11.

The Philips HDD6330 is only compatible with version 10 under Windows XP.

If you have version 11, then uninstall and it should roll back to version 10.

This could be because your software isn't compatible for Windows Vista.

I've looked on Philips site for any software for that mp3 player and campatible with Vista, but i had no luck.

Have you tryed connecting it to your computer and using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to add your songs. If now and you want to try go to Media Player 10 or 11 which ever you have if you haven't got a latest version download here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

When you've successfully installed media player 11 you've opened media player 11 at the top click on the link called "Sync" once you've done that if your mp3 players been connnected it sshould show a little mp3 player in the top right of the pane.

Now to add music yu simply drag and drop the music you want on your mp3 player to where it says "Drag items here" once you've done that just click on "Start Snyc" at the bottom.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems just leave a comment on this page and i will get back to you a.s.a.p.
