You can drag a group of songs from your iTunes window to a folder (or even just the mounted player itself) and they will copy to the player.

Or like suggested above you can find the files on your HD by right clicking the song you want and using the contextual menu to located it (different terminology if you are using Win vs Mac but same principle). Then copy them over.

You can't sync playlists or anything like that with iTunes. At least I haven't seen it as a supported player.

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!

SOURCE: 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 compatible


You can drag the files from iTunes to the player in file and folder mode, as long as they're in the supported formats.

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!

Music transfer


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.

Insignia connecting to car


Solution #1 - If your car deck is a tape deck, you can purchase a cassette conversion kit to accomplish this. The cassette converter is a mock-cassette that has a wire and headphone plug on the end. Put in the "cassette", plug the headphone jack into your Insignia Pilot, and play your music from the Pilot.

Solution #2 - There are also FM transmitter packages that will plug into your Insignia Pilot and transmit over an FM frequency. You'll need to turn on and tune the cars radio to the frequency the transmitter is sending to be able to hear the music from your pilot.

Solution #3 - If you are looking for a direct connect through the AUX 1 input (if your car radio supports this) you would need a small amplifier to boost the signal from your Pilot. Otherwise youll either get nothing as far as volume, ot it'll be really weak and you'll have to increase your volume to such a high level that there will also be a lot of noise. This solution would require a small amp (probably available from Best Buy or Radio Shack) left/right stereo RCA cable (from amplifier to car deck), left/right stereo RCA to stereo headphone, and a power cable to your cigarette lighter.

**if you have an after-market car stereo, you can most likely connect with this solution. If your car stereo is stock, then most likely you will not have an Aux 1 input on the back of the unit and will need to resort to solution #1 or #2.

FLAC format support?


Hey chuckp73,

Unfortunately this model does not currently appear to have support for the FLAC lossless format, and does not have any updates available through the manufacturer's website at this time.

According to information provided by Insignia, the only file formats that the 8GB Pilot currently supports are MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, WMA DRM, WMA Pro, OGG, WAV, Audible, MPEG4 (30fps), WMV (30fps) and JPEG.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use US.
