You can simply use drag and drop method to transfer music from your computer to your MP3 player. You can also use Windows media player 11 to transfer music. Here is a link:
If the songs are DRM protected, please use Rhapsody to transfer them. You can refer to this link:
Hope this helps.

I have some music stored on my mp3 player and i want to save it onto my new computer also. i cant figure out what to do. the only music i can locate is the sample music that came already stored on my...

When you plug your MP3 player into your PC, the PC would recognize it as an external hard drive. All you have to do at that point is go to My Computer and open the files in that drive and drag and drop, or copy the whole file to your PC.
Not all Mp3 players are hard-drive based as mentioned above, furthermore some are write protected and do not allow you to copy from them. So, for those of you who have a mp3 player that is not write-protected, and will not allow you to access it as a removable drive, what you need to do is download Winamp. Winamp is free, just go to; it will have a link for it. Open up Winamp, plug in your mp3 player, it should recognize it, give it a sec. There is a tab that says portables, your player should show up there, click on it to open. From here you will be able to right click any of the media on your mp3 player and chose the option to Copy to Local Media. I hope this helps everyone else.
Plug in Mp3 Player. Go to My computer. Right click on the device. Select the Explore option. Go to the folder on the mp3 player that has your music. Open the My Music folder. Drop and drag your music from the mp3 folder to your my music folder.

I was given a Philips brdan iPod but own a MacBook

since it's not an apple made mp3 player, you shouldn't need itunes to use it. whoever gave it to you probably neglected to give you the software disc you need to download your music, but try taking the music straight from itunes drag and drop style, or whatever other music programs you may be using.

How do i use this thing

Most mp3 player will be recognized as a removable hard drive. I they are not write protected then you should be able to simply drag and drop files on it /only after i was installed correctly, Windows have to recognize it/. If drag and drooping won't work you can synchronize files with WMP.

If neither of the aforementioned methods work then please give the brand and number of the mp3 player you have and I'll find a solution for you.

"Synch problem: Synchronise to continue your music subscription"

I would suggest formatting the unit and trying again, but this time do not sync it with media player. Plug it into your USB and got "My Computer", the player will show up as a removable disc usually drive f:, right click on the drive and hit format, quick format shoudl work. Once formated double click the removable disc drive, and then click and drag or copy and paste your music into this drive and see what happens. That player should support WMA files, but just to let you know, if you convert those files to MP3 it will take about half the space and therefot you can store more music at once.
