I think I had this same problem. Look on your computer for the limewire folder. For instance I saved mine to my documents. open the folder. Ther should be a sub folder marked saved. This is where all my songs go to once they have completed on Limewire. good Luck :)
Download and install iTunes.
Grab songs from a CD using Windows Media Player, or sign up for an online music service (or purchase songs directly from iTunes).
Click on the icon of the iPod.
Click on music - add the folder in which your songs are stored.
Better yet - read the full version of your user's manual.
There are several things that I can see that might be driving your mp3 player haywire:
A) About 1/3 of Limewire songs contained some type of writing in the "Comments" section of the songs' ID3 Tags before version 5 - it may be up to 100% now, and your player obviously doesn't like it. This is going to be a real bear, but I would take one of the songs you just downloaded, open it in Windows Media Player, and right-click the song title within Windows Media Player. Select "Advanced Tag Editor," and delete any writing that appears in the "Comments" section of the ID3 tag. Then try transferring that song to your player and see if it plays correctly. If it does, repeat with all of the songs you just downloaded. It will take you forever.
B) If you use iTunes to transfer songs to your mp3 player, version 5 will not work with iTunes - it simply pastes a data file into iTunes which is not the actual song, so it may appear to transfer correctly, but in fact you have not transferred the actual song file. Use Windows Media Player to transfer instead.
C) The bitrate on songs in version 5 is higher - most mp3 players have a maximum bit rate that they can handle, and ver. 5 might exceed this upper limit. The solution would be to convert all of your mp3 files to a lower bit rate using free software such as Media Monkey.
Without dragging this explanation out any longer, I think your best solution would be to revert back to Ver. 4.1 or so.
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.
Okay I know how to download songs from CDs and limewire. If you have windows media player, plug up the mp3 player then open up windows media player. Put the cd in and go to rip, choose the songs you want to rip off the cd. Then go to sync and synchronize it to the device. From limewire you type in the songs that you want to download to limewire. Open up my computer and go to your device plugged in. Then drag the items over to the devices open window. Also it helps if you just play around with it on the computer!
Try this. We had this problem too and ultimately scraped itunes and went to www.limewire.com .
Burn you purchased songs to disk and then download the files to your device or just download limewire where all songs are Mp3 formatted and it is really user friendly. Download, highlight at lower screen at limewire and hit explore - then save file to mP3 device (just be sure to always highlight target song) and it is really easy. Good Luck and Have Fun!!!
Use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs downloaded from Limewire to your Sansa. The first time you open Windows Media Player, it will search the "My Music" folder for songs - this may take a few minutes. Mkae sure you have Windows Media Player 10 or 11. You can either move or copy the Limewire songs to the folder called "My Music," or go into Windows Media Player and change Windows Media Player's configuration so that it can read the Limewire downloads folder.
