    when i saved files to the SD card and tried to open them on another computer, the files were all in xml format, instead of MS Word 2010, MS Excel 2010 or Adobe.

I always heard that if you stored videos or pictures into cards they wouldn't work. The cards are only for music.

I have a NS-DV4G Insignia mp3 player which has an error message of "NAND File System Fail, Format File System!!". I had recently downloaded a video which seemed to slow activity until finally all...

Did you attempt to format the player when it is connected to the computer ? If you are not familiar with the format procedure - it shortly goes like this :
1) connect the device to the computer, the same way you do to transfer songs. 2) Make sure you backup all the songs to the computer before proceeding. 2) Go to "My Computer" 3) Right click on the device, then "Format..." 4) In the "File System" selection, make sure you select "FAT". If that's not available, select "FAT32". 5) Make sure that under "Allocation unit size" you choose "Default allocation size". 6) Make sure that Quick Format is NOT ticked. 7) Click "Start" - this may take a few moments, and your player will be cleared of any songs. For the test, try to put a new song that you haven't put before and see if the player detects it.
(If you had problems with the format - it goes like something in the attached video, just pay attention to the options I remarked about)
If that doesn't work, make sure you remove the SD card from the player (if it has any SD card at all).

How to download songs from MAc onto DSi?Do I need the SD card? If so, how does the SD card interface with the computer? I can probably figure out how to convert iTune songs to whatever format is supported...

You must have a card reader for your computer in order to add songs to an SD card. You will need an SD card in order to get Music onto your DSi. You can often purchase a USB card reader specifically for an SD card for cheap. Check your local electronics store. All you will need to do then is copy the .MP3 files over to the SD card. It works exactly like a Floppy Disc or a Flash Drive. The DSi should already have the software it needs to run .MP3 files.

Deleted files

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your MP2 player, here are some for your option.
Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music. Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the player in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

I'm confused. Are you saying that you can't play files on the SD card from the computer itself? Or, the songs won't play on the mp3 player once the SD card is loaded into the mp3 player?

First, make sure the songs are in the right format - each mp3 player will only play files of a certain type. Your best bet is to only use Mp3 format files -everything else is going to give you one problem or another.

Second, there is a size limit to what type of SD card the mp3 player can read. 2GB SD cards are the absolute maximum that this player will handle, and probably only 1GB even.

Hope this helps a little.

I Download music to Mp3 and it says no file on it, but it will play the songs on Windows Media Player.

Try not running the Syn software at all. Try copying the files over manually.

After plugging in the USB cable you should get a small popup that says its connected.

Click on "My computer" and under "Devices with removable storage" you should see a new device called DV.

double click on that and you should see 3 folders. DCIM, EBOOK, and MP3

Copy your mp3 files from your computer into the mp3 folder of the camera and it should work.
