Hi.i dont no how to load free songs onto a thomson lyra mp3.

Thomson sold off its CE business so many times, I don't know who owns them anymore. Their players are not compatible with iTunes songs, so if your card is for either an iTunes or a DRM-encrypted WMA, you are probably out of luck. If your card is for a song in mp3 format, then load the song onto your computer first, and then use Windows Media Player to Sync the song to your mp3 player.

Sony mp3 player

You can use the Media transfer software that comes with the player, or hilight and drag the files from Limewire into Windows Media Player, then open up the sync tab and make a list and hit sync. If you do this, make sure that the file is not being played on Limewire. You can ensure this by hitting the stop button on the Limewire Media Player, or playing a totally different song by double clicking the file in your Limewire Library.

I can't load no more than 60 songs

You have auto-sync enabled - disable it

Disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player - Microsoft's website explains it far better than I can

Open Windows Media Player WITH the mp3 player connected
Highlight Sync, click on the arrow to bring down drop-dow menu
Select Set Up Sync
Uncheck box that says "automatically sync files to device"

Empty song list

Here's what happened: When you first synced your player to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected, Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the player. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the player automatically. It will even delete songs from your player that were on there before.

Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your player connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding/deleting songs/files you don't want into your player.

Deleting songs

i had a similar problem with my mp3 player because i had put songs on it from a different computer. i had to go back to that other computer and sync it up to media player to be able to see the files and remove them.
