Morning evo4ka,

First, the batteries are both rechargeable. The smaller battery is designed to keep power to the volatile memory chips so you don't loose your songs or settings. The larger battery is to power the player when it is turned on to play music, videos, and operate the navigational menu.

You shouldn't need to remove and replace the batteries at all...just use a USB cable and a computer and you should be able to recharge the player.

However, should you really need to replace the watch's what you'll need to do:

First off, the battery was never meant to be replaced. It is welded to the negative terminal with three quick spot welds. It is possible to break these welds with a thin blade by prying the metal strip, but you do run the risk of tearing the metal of the negative terminal. Once you have this battery free of the terminal, you should be able to replace it with the new battery you have purchased and press the negative contact back into place. I would recomend using a little sparkplug conductive grease on the area where the battery and contact meet, but also leave room for the contact to be superglued down...otherwise if there is ever a break in contact you can loose your songs and your settings.

Honestly, I don't recomend replacing this little battery since it's not supposed to die for something like 20 years. If you haven't plugged it into a computer to charge, I'd suggest that first. You can also use just about any cheap iPod wall charger that has a USB port on it and a USB standard to USB mini cable.

I have the same player and have been really happy with it. It has yet to fail or do something funky and I've been using it for about 1.5 years.

Good luck and I hope this helps!

How to delete songs put onto mp3 by another computer

If you wish to remove all of the music from your device, follow these steps

1. Press the Menu button
2. Select "settings"
3. Select "system"
4. Select "erase all"

If you wish to remove certain songs but not all, Insignia recommends using Best Buy Rhapsody to manage the files on your device. The program recognizes the MP3 player and Files can be dragged between your MP3 player and Rhapsody. Even tho this perticular model is discontinued, they still have the manual online. Go to the website and put the Model number in and click the appropriate model(it shows NS-DA1G and NS-DA2G). The next page has all the manuals and information you should need

Make sure player is on, use another USB port, wait at least 30 seconds.

Does the Player Charge when connected to the USB ? If so then you have a "Live" USB connection so you may need to resolve a USB driver issue.

Make sure your OS has the latest updates: ie Service Pack 3

Cant Install Or Replay Playlists NS-DA2G

I called insignia. An extremely rude cust. service rep. told me that the player doesn't work with itunes playlists and is ONLY mac compat. as a storage device.

What a crap answer! I actually can get songs on the thing and they play, but playlists are a lost cause.

Sometimes technology sucks.......
