Have songs in file on my computer, but cannot get them to transfer onto my mp3 player. When I drag and drop, the mp3 players says "Do not disconnect" and seems like it's transferring, but nothing is ever on the player afterwards!

The songs are usually input on mp3 players via a USB cable, then you wire the cable to your computer and transfer your music files to its local folder, usually drag and drop or copy and paste. Try to find the cable, and then after downloading songs from like rhapsodymp3.com, you can transfer the audio files to its folder with the auto ~ play after you connect it to your pc. This should do the trick. :)
try these methods
and any windows media player should work
**Drag and Drop** Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player. --**Windows Media Player**-- If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.
To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
-Plug in your mp3 player -Go into 'Limewire', select a song and go 'Locate file/Open Containg Folder', you should be in your folder with all your songs. or go 'My Music' and find your music files. -Either select all your songs, open them with 'Windows Media Player' and transfer them that way. -Or 'Open My Computer' then open 'Sansa e200' and drag the songs from where your songs are located [My Music] to the 'Music' folder in your Sansa e200 folder. [MyMusic] Song.mp3 >drag to> [MyComputer/Sansa] Music.
The Limewire music is located in your My Computer> C:>Documents & Settings Folder>Administrators Documents (your name)>Shared Folder.
You can manually drag these files from this folder onto your device, located under My Computer>Device Name (there may or may not be a music folder, you should put it in there if there is).
Once you drag & drop the files, you should safely disconnect your device, then you are done.
Best of Luck.
My suggestion is switching the file transfer protocol from MTP to MSC by accessing it under the Menu.
Once you do this, when the Lyra is plugged into the computer, it will appear as an external hard drive.
Format the hard drive and then drag and drop your songs and/or directories of songs onto the Lyra.
This is what I do, as I never use Rhapsody, URGE, or even Windows Media Player or MusicMatch to upload songs onto my RD2763.
Hope this helps!
stay on limewire, go to Windows Media Player and click Sync.It should say something in the corner like,'drag items here'.then go back to limewire,click and hold onto the songs u want on ur Mp3 and drag them to the 'drag items here' spot. when ur done getting all the songs u want,click 'Start Sync' and ur songs will be transfered to ur Mp3!
Follow up to the instruction given by rtujillo. Change the settings of the player to MSC (SETTINGS>USB MODE> MSC) connect the player to the computer and you should see the player listed in the My Computer window with a drive letter. Now just drag and dropped the songs to the player. The songs file format should be compatible with the player.
