I bought a mp3 player but when i rip songs from a cd and transfer to the mp3 player, an error msg comes up saying file format is wrong, what do i do to fix this?

Download a Music File converter. Try X to MP3 in google search. this will convert all your songs to MP3's. As for CD ripping, it might not work because usually CD's are copyrighted and music ripped from it wont work on anything BUT the CD and what plays the CD.
