My advice is to use MusicBrainz ( To identify and tag your music. It should be able to identify the songs based on their content. It will then change the data on the song to match the song, artist, album, etc.

Most of the songs that I have downloaded from Itunes will not play because it will say lisense problem.

This is due to the DRM (Digital Rights Management) of songs you have purchased through iTunes that are not iTunes+ (DRM Free Files). These Files show up in iTunes as AAC files and have the extension .m4p. These files will not play on any other type of player than an Apple iPod, or iPhone etc. They must first be converted to standard mp3 files. This can be achieved several ways:
1) Burn the songs to CD then re-import them as MP3 Files and copy those files to your device (time consuming)
2) Create an MP3 Version of the song within iTunes which is fast and easy:
step 1: Open iTunes -> Preferences
On the General Tab you will see "Import Settings" near the bottom of the window under "When You Insert a CD". Click the button "Import Settings"
Now change Import Using: to MP3 Encoder
Click OK. Click OK again to close the Preferences window.
step 2: Now back in iTunes you will see your music library. Highlight the song you want to play on your Philips MP3 player and click the right-mouse button to bring up the context menu.
You will see "Create MP3 Version" As an option on this menu.
step 3: Create MP3 Versions of the songs that will not play on your player
step 4: Copy the MP3 Version of the songs to your player. You can do this by highlighting the Newly Created MP3 Song and right-click "Show in Finder" or "Show File".

How to download songs to an mp3 player from itunes

MP3 players cant be used with itunes, Itunes is only for Ipods and such.
Just see where you download the actual songs. and put them in a folder and copy the songs into your MP3 player.

Or you can also try right clicking on the song in itunes and then copying and pasting it in the MP3 player

I pod nano looses songs and scrambles albums.

This may have something to do with how the ipod is reading the names of the songs.
Hook your ipod up to iTunes and when the summary screen comes up uncheck the "automatically sync music"
This will put it in Manage Music Manually mode.
click the music folder and inspect the song titles.
if a son has something in the name such a a number before the name title change the song name to remove the numeral. see if it comes back in order.
as for losing songs, the ipod will remove songs when you sync if it doesn;t find it in your playlist.
this may be whats going on.

Barbie mp3 player

This works with Barbie MP3 player model BAR901:
If the songs are iTunes Store format (copy protected AAC) you can burn them to a CD (preferably a CD-RW, which you can reuse over and over) which in effect converts then songs to AIFF format with no copy protection, then import them as MP3s back into iTunes (Advanced > Create MP3 Version). (Note: Be sure iTunes > Preferences > General > Import Settings... > MP3 encoder is selected, or you will get Create AAC Version in the menu). Make sure View > View Options... > Kind is selected so you can sort the songs by the kind info column (that is, MP3 not AAC). Then drag your new MP3s out of the window into the main level folder of the Barbie MP3 player. Erase the MP3s from iTunes if you don't need them, since you already have AAC versions. Phew, not easy.
If you have a physical CD rather than iTunes store purchase, it's way easier; just import the tunes as MP3 (Advanced > Create MP3 Version, see above) and drag them into the Barbie player's root folder. The songs play then on the MP3 player. ;-)

How do i download my own songs to the ipod

download the latest version of itunes from here
Then install the program.
Copy your music over to itunes either by copying your CD's or importing your music that you already have on your computer, you can do this by going to File>add folder to library or add file to library and go to where your music is and import. This will convert your music to be played in itunes and to be recognised by your ipod. Once you have done this, create a playlist of music that you want on your ipod. Go to File>new playlist. and rename the playlist to a name more suitable. Then select which songs you want on your ipod by righ-clicking the song and send to playlist, select the playlist that you just created. Once you have your playlist and are happy that you have all of the songs that you want, plug your ipod into the computer, itunes will pick the ipod up and load the necessary drivers for it. You will notice a little picture of your ipod on the left hand side of the screen, click on it then click on and update your ipod with your playlist.

I hope this helps
