    I have limewire and I have songs on my windows media player but I can't get any of those songs onto my zune player. I had an Ipod before the zune and it pretty much uploaded songs onto it without any problems. I've tried everything I can think of but the zune set up screen on my account won't let my drag my songs into a new play list. I don't know whats going on and it's really frusterating!

You might not have a type of file that is supported by your mp3 player. I use online converters and change them all to wma because our players can play that and they are smaller than mp3s.

You can also try to Refresh the Database on the player. Go to Settings/Extra/Database Refresh. Some times the player needs to manually refreshed in order to see the new songs.

You can try loading songs using different software, or direct through the windows explorer. Try doing a reset. If nothing seems to work, then install the driver found on this page: If all fails, take it to the shop where you bought it, or to one that sells, and see what they can do for you. maybe its still on warranty? Good luck

How do you transfer songs on Sony Bean MP3 Player to a computer. I don't have the computer that I used to use for it. When I plugged it in to my new computer, nothing came up.

These types of devices are not made to be able to transfer songs from the device to a computer as to reduce the likelihood of illegal copying of songs - It might be a case where you just need to put all the songs back onto you computer and in future make sure you backup all your data. I would listen to the Sony technician.

I have the sci phone i68 and can listen to music

The files will only play on the equipped audio player if they are in the mp3 folder. It works efficiently if you plug the phone with the memory card inserted directly to your computer by using the usb plug. Mine work just fine as long as they are in the folder named MP3.

Your songs are in the wrong format - read my "tips and tricks" on song formats, as it is too complicated to explain here. Short answer: convert the songs to Mp3 format.

Unknown songs and artists

You will have to take them off the player,
rip your cd with media player, then BEFORE you sync them to the player, rightclick on the song, choose Advance Tag Editor and rename the song, artist, genre, then you can sync them over with title and name locked in the file.
