Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

Music transfer Our son purchased a Insignia Pilot 4G Mp3 player. When the device was purchased, we were told that he could use Itunes to download music. He has purchased music through Itunes, and when the music would not load up on the device, he signed up for the free version of Rhapsody. This seemed to be the solution, but the Itunes library will not transfer over to the Media library on Rhapsody. We have contacted Rhapsody and they can not help us because they do not support Vista users. We are trying to avoid the monthly fees for using Rhapsody. Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated because the device is useless if we received false information regarding music downloads when purchasing the player. Thank you

Here is what is going on. All iTunes songs are in AAC format. The Insignia Pilot cannot read thos files, and the Rhapsody music service cannot read them either. You will need to redownload all of the songs that you want in Rhapsody itself. If you do not want to pay the monthly fees, then I would not download any songs from Rhapsody - they will cease to work after your Rhapsody subscription expires.

You have a couple of options. You could buy an AAC to Mp3 Converter software - this is not free, as far as I know - you also want to be careful, because some sites that advertise these products are scam artists - they don't let you try the product before buying.

Another option is to get Limewire or Morpheus - the free versions of thse services run extremely slow and give you a lot of ads, but they allow you to download Mp3 format songs for free without monthly fees.

Mp3 players just aren't as easy as they used to be.

I want to download i tunes for apple ipoda1320


Hello!!

Load music into your iTunes library by either purchasing tracks or CDs online from the iTunes store, which is accessible through the iTunes interface, or insert CDs into your CD-ROM drive and rip them into your iTunes library by clicking "Import Music" within your iTunes interface.

Uncheck any songs that you do not wish to be transferred from your iTunes library to your iPod, for the iTunes library will automatically begin downloading all songs (which are checked by default) to your iPod upon connection.

Connect your iPod to your computer via the USB port that came with the purchase of your iPod. Click on "iPod" located under the "Devices" category to begin the syncing process if your computer does not begin automatically downloading music to your iPod..

Coby MP822-4G touch screen doesn't work with our MAC!


Unfortunately itunes only works for apple ipods. If the Media Player shows up on the desktop and discover where the music files should be dropped then he should be able to go to his user folder and then the music folder and then the iTunes Music Library and then be able to drag and drop his required music onto the player. Sounds a bit of a fiddle but a final piece of advice try it with one folder or even one music file and then see if it works.

Unable to sync music purchased from itunes onto zen mp3


I believe iTunes may not like to sync with not apple players, but I am sure DRM protection is to blame here. You can try to sync your music with the software provided by Zen, or a program called MediaMonkey, to see if it works.
Otherwise, if the music is DRM protected .mp4, you can always burn the songs into a standard AUDIO CD, and then rip the music back to your computer, that way it loses the DRM protection, and should be easy to sync without problems.

Windows ME and Insignia


Insignia mp3 players can use the generic mass storage driver in almost any computer. Windows ME includes a generic mass storage driver. When you plug in the USB cord, two extra drive letters will show up in Windows Explorer. Songs go into the Music folder. For neatness: Make new folder for each artist and under each artist, make a new folder for each album.
Also slight chance the USB mode got off of Automatic in the player's options. Please do advise if it won't work, I will show you where to get the generic mass storage driver for windows ME and 98 if for some reason it isn't installed on your machine.

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 pilot


The whole point of the Pilot is to avoid the tether to iTunes. I'm not sure you can really sync with iTunes but you can easily copy your music to the player. The path in Windows to the iTunes music library is usually under the My Music directory under iTunes\iTunes Music. I created a folder on the Pilot named iTunes Music and copied all the folders under the iTunes Music folder on my laptop to the Pilot folder. Playlists are also supported but if you create the playlist file in iTunes you may need to convert it to m3u format. You will also want to go into the settings and set the USB mode to File & Folder.

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!
