***How to transfer music to an iPod to a Windows computer***
Step 1: Connect your iPod and launch iTunes. In the iPod management screen, scroll down to Options and check "Enable disk use." iTunes will give you a warning--select OK.
Note: If you get an error message asking you to reformat upon connecting, your iPod was originally formatted for Mac and cannot be used in Windows. One workaround is to install a program like MacDrive, which will allow your Windows machine to read Mac-formatted drives. Clicking "reformat" will erase your iPod.
Step 2: Now open My Computer and open your iPod drive.
Step 3: Open Tools > Folder Options. Click the View tab and check "Show hidden files and folders."
Step 4: Now in your iPod folder, open iPod_Controls > Music. Highlight all of the folders and drag them into the desired folder on your hard drive. This might take a while, depending on how much music you're transferring.
Step 5: Highlight all of the folders again, right-click, and select Properties. Uncheck "Hidden." Close this window.
Once the files are copied, you've successfully transferred the music. However, you'll notice that the songs have four-letter names and are scattered among many folders. It's OK. Once you import the music into iTunes (or any other media player), the program will reinstate the titles of the songs. Please take time to rate me Bud

I had the same problem, repeatedly. I have two sons, both got identical players. The first registered flawlessly, the second failed repeatedly. No help from anywhere. Tried loading on additional PC's and laptops, no solution. After giving up, and playing with the working model, I realized that the button lock on the non-working model was in the lock position. I unlocked it and it registered. I am amazed that this simple issue is not on the front page of the manual, or pop up in the error message box. Best of luck.
My problem is that it will give me the option to register the Barbie Girls MP3 player, and it says "storing registration infortmation" but 3 hours later it has not changed! I dont know if it is actually doing something or if its frozen?!?!?
Walmart and many other sites sells songs that are DRM encrypted, meaning they are copy protected. Your MP3 player will not play these unless it is DRM 9 / 10 compatable. The purchase license permits you to download and play in the first device, when copied to another device the DRM prohibits playback in the second device.
Just plug the mp3 player in like it was a removable storage device and drag and drop the songs into a folder on the mp3 player. you can delete the songs the same way. You dont have to install the software that comes with the player. I bought my son one and was having the same problems as you guys and this is how I fixed it.
