I download some music to my WMP on a CD and then rip it to my MP3 player. This is the only way I've figured out how to download music to it. Anyway, I click on move to or copy to the E file which is my MP3 player and all of a sudden the file disappears. It's like my computer doesn't recognize that I have a device plugged into the USB port. I thought maybe it was because the MP3 player needed charging but that hasn't cured the problem. Any suggestions? I got this thing free from work for a promotional thing so I have no model number on it or the useless manual that came with it.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.
When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.
If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

There are a couple of wats to put music on a MP3 player.
You can download MP3 music files from the Internet, some Internet sites have free downloads and others you have to pay to download songs and albums.
You can convert your CDs into MP3 files can copy them to your MP3 player. There are freeware programs on the Internet that convert CD songs to MP3 format, the CD song is rip/converted to MP3 file.
Microsoft Media Player can also rip CD songs into MP3 files as well as playing MP3 files/songs.
Are you trying to synch tracks directly from a CD. If you are, you first have to rip the tracks. In windows Media player, you first need to setup the type of file you want to rip to (MP3 in this case). Right click on the top bar of the WMP and select Tools|Options. Select the Rip tab and under the rip settings, change the format to MP3. Select the quality you want (higher quality means less music can be stored on your unit). 192 kbps is a good setting. Now, click OK or apply as appropriate to get out of the menu. Insert your CD and click on the RIP tab of WMP. Your CD's tracks should automatically come up with checks marks beside them. Start the RIP process. Once it is complete, you can then drag the newly ripped files from your library to the Walkman and they should be synched.
Assuming you've used Windows Media Player to rip them, you'll need to bring up the Options dialog box. Click Tools > Options (you may need to press Alt or right click on a blank space in WMP to bring up the main menu.
From there, click on the 'Rip Music' tab and find the Format dropdown under 'Rip Settings'. Change 'Windows Media Audio' to 'MP3' and click OK.
You'll now need to re-rip all of the music and re-transfer it to your device.
If you have Windows Media Player then,
Insert the CD into the drive
then In WMP click on the RIP tab and rip the songs from the CD
Then go to the SYNC tab and plug in the mp3 player and you should be able to transfer music from the computer to the mp3 player, any other questions, please post
I would assume that the music is copy-protected and that the device will refuse to play it because it can't go out to the internet to find a license. If you ripped the music from a CD in WMP, look for an option within WMP that says ''copy protect music'' and make sure it is NOT checked.
