You should be able to buy tracks from places like the Rhapsody MP3 store or's MP3 store (go to and select "Movies, Music & Games" and then "MP3 Downloads"). The tracks will cost you usually 99 cents apiece, but they will be DRM-free MP3 files. The player is probably not compatible with subscription services like Rhapsody To Go, but as long as you're buying MP3s with no DRM, they should work just fine with any player that can play MP3s (which is pretty much any player, including iPods).

I don't really know how Rhapsody works - do you have to download strait from the site to player, or do you save the files to your hard drive in between. If you have them as individual mp3 or wav files on your hard drive try using a different media player.

I did read in the installation guide for my ma566 that its not compatible with downloads "purchased from" itunes. Maybe its the same thing with Rhapsody?

Re: the xp vs win98 - on a phone call to Nextar tech support, I was told that if you have XP you don't need to use the driver disk but you might need to help the computer search online for updated drivers. I'm not sure if your saying your issue is that your COMPUTER is acutally 98 when it was "supposed to be" Xp, or if you are trying to use the 98 driver disk on xp and its not working.

Did your computer ever even recognize that the mp3 player existed? Or are you getting a specific error message?

How can i make this happen?

It is very simple. You can divide your MP3, WMA songs into directories and just drag and drop the directories (you can have each album with titles of each song specified too) to the removable drive of the MA566 or most current day MP3 players. but it has to be under the MP3root directory.

Then when you use your MA566 use the menu button (side middle button) then you can find a folder icon and press button then you can select which directory you and and use the same menu button again (you can use the direction buttons jto scroll up and down the directories), use menu to select then once you locate a song you can use menu button to select and a play or delete will pop-up and use the menu button to select.

If you don't use this method, then you can just use the direction button to scroll back and forth, you can see the title ( what ever name you have same as on your pc).

I hope this helps. It applies to almost all the same interface for this series or (ALI M5661R based mp3) players.

I try to explain as simple as it can.
