I was having this same problem, but the solution I came up with was forehead-slappingly simple. I merely put the files on my MP3 player manually, using drag-and-drop from the itunes music file folder (not from within the program) to the device storage folders.
I can\'t say if this will work for all MP3 players (ours is a Sony walkman), as they need to be able to play m4a files. But after trying a dozen ways to get WMP to recognize the m4a, and trying to get itunes to recognize the players (including trying 3rd party addons which would have had to completely erase the player to start with)... I just figured I\'d try just drag and drop and to my surprise, it worked perfectly, absolutely no problems. I\'m listening to my itunes-purchased music on the MP3 player right now.
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.
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.
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!
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!
