I'm trying to transfer these songs onto my mp3. The songs are on my computer from CDs that I bought. If it helps, I burned them onto my computer using WMP. These songs used to be able to be transferred on my mp3, but for some reason they will not transfer anymore. Other songs will transfer, just not the ones I burnt on my computer from CD using WMP.
Every time I try to transfer one of these songs I get an error message: a problem has occurred in obtaining the device's certificate. i think it's beacuse it's WMA.
I tried to transfer them in every program I have: WMP and Rhapsody, and even through My Computer. What can I do to fix it? I'm pretty sure it's because the songs are WMA.

You need to use iTunes, download it here: www.apple.com/itunes/overview. Now if you bought your iPod used you won't have to go through the iPod set up, but if you did buy new then you will have to. After you've done all this, you need to add all your songs to your iTunes library, you can burn your CDs to it or buy them off the iTunes store. Then plug your iPod into your computer and select it in the iTunes sidebar, now if you want to manually put your songs onto your iPod, then scroll all the way down and check the box that says "Manually manage Music and Videos" if you want iTunes to automatically put all your songs onto your ipod then just click "Sync."
I have this same problem, but you simpley cant do it, because none of teh songs are compatiable, but you could burn all of your songs onto a a cd, and then download them or you coulld just re download all of your cds to go gear vibe. The last one is not the MOST convienent but at leaset then you'll have all of your songs.
One thing you can do is burn all the songs from your old computer's iTunes onto CDs, then re-upload them to your iTunes on your new computer. It sounds ridiculous that there's not a better way, but so far that's the only method I've found that's worked.
If you're using Windows, then use Windows Media player to rip your music into WMA. If you don't want to do that, use CDdex to rip your music from CD to MP3. The problem probably lies in whatever program your using to rip your music. To your player. http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/
Use Windows Media Player- it is the easiest - plenty of instructional files on Microsoft's website - with and without video tutorials; Reader's Digest version: connect iPod, open Windows Media Player, click burn tab, the songs will copy (make sure your iPod supports WMA files); drag and drop them to player, hit "start sync". Done. If the songs you are trying to transfer do not have "burn rights," you will not be able to transfer them no matter what program you use.
