Wont copy songs to mp3 player because of write protection
I have many songs that I have either downloaded on my computer through limewire or loaded from actual cd's, and created one playlist that i have attempted to load onto my gpx MW238P player and no matter which method I use to load them onto my mp3 player, a message comes up saying it cannot load them because the files are write protected. I dont understand it, i can copy all the songs onto a cd, but not into the mp3 player? Please help! Brenda

You can't use Limewire directly to transfer songs to the Nextar. You will need to transfer the songs to the Nextar using Windows Media Player. Limewire puts the songs in a folder called "Limewire Downloads" usually. You will need to open Windows Media Player, run the mouse over the "Library" tab, and select "Add to Library." Once the window pops up you will need to add the folder called "Limewire Downloads" - it may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player is going to add all of those Limewire downloads to its own library. Then, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to the Nextar.
The songs you downloaded from limewire should be in a folder somewhere. When you set up limewire you created a folder where your limewire mp3s would be saved You may have used the default folder. Just find that folder where your files are saved then connect your Mp3 player to your computer. Your computer should recognize it as a drive and Appear in "My Computer". Double click on the Mp3 player icon in My Computer. This will open up the player. Then with the player and the limewire folder open just drag the Mp3s onto your Player. I hope this has been helpful.
The nameless mp3 player that you have is probably not capable of playing DRM-protected songs. Double-check the songs that you have downloaded from Limewire, and see if the 3 songs that you ARE able to play are in mp3 format. If so, only transfer songs in mp3 format to the player. DRM-encrypted WMA's and iTunes (AAC) songs will not work.
First, install the software if any that came with your mp3 player and connect your mp3 player. If you want to add music to your mp3 player you can sync with your media player or copy and paste songs from my music folder to your mp3 player that's under my computer. To delete songs or files just go to my computer, click on your device and you will see your files, just click on any ones and press delete on your keyboard. To download music for your mp3 player, you will have to pay for songs at most places like itunes. There is one site that is called LimeWire, just go to www.limewire.com, download and install the software. Let me WARN YOU, that limewire is ILLEGAL and there is stiff penalties if you get caught.
