In order to download music onto your computer (which you will need to do before transferring music from your computer to your player)
, you can purchase music online by individual track or album downloads (there are a number of online music services) or you can purchase a music subscription (such as Rhapsody) which allows you to play music as long as your subscription continues.
Another method of downloading music to your computer is by ripping CD's. For instructions on how to download and also transfer music to your player, visit www.philips.com/support
and enter your specific model number in the search engine to arrive at the product page (which includes FAQ's, video tutorials, manuals, etc.). Model numbers typically begin with "SA."
