MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs. When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same. You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:
Click All Programs.
Select Windows Media Player.
Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.
Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.
Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.
Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.
Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.
Look for the songs you want to burn.
In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.
You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.
To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.
After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.
It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc ex. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.

The Curtis site says that a Firmware update is required for this product. The firware update fixes a welcome screen as well as the computer not seeing the device issue - see download site in reply pasted below...
Q: When turned on, The WELCOME screen goes on but the unit shuts down after that even with new battery. This may be caused due to damaged firmware but can be recovered by firmware upgrade. Click on the link given below to download the Firmware folder on your computer. When done, refer to file "procedure.doc", a Word file included in the Firmware folder, and follow the procedure to upgrade the Firmware of MP3 player. Download the Firmware folder at http://www.curtisint.com/html/custservice/manuals/CUR_MPS515_FW-UPGRADE.ZIP Q: The computer does not recognize the MP3 player. Upgrade the Firmware of the MP3 player, as procedure explained above.
I think I fugured it out. I think this should set the thing up for you. Turn the unit on. Push the button in and hold for the count of three. Wait as you count to two then push the buton in quickly. The screen should display a different "MUSIC" sign. Now the tiny file type in the upper left of the screen should say "mp3". Now make sure you are loading mp3 files. Be sure the unit is ON when you connect it to the USB port. Drag and drop files onto the mp3 player. I got it to accept 5 songs so far. I am working with Windows xp. Hope it helped!
Throw it away. I spent hours on the thing before I found out about the firmware upgrade, and hours more after that. The upgrade apparently toasted it beause I disconnected after it ran for 15 minutes in "initializing" without any apparent change.
I will never buy anything with CURTIS on it for the rest of my life.
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.
Hope this helps and good luck
Ok I have same player, same problem. Turns out Windows Media player copied the files into the FM subfolder on the device.
connect device to computer. Do not open WIndows media player, instead open windows explorer, in there you should see the ilo as a new drive. Click the drive and go into the FM folder, now select all files and drag them directly to the drive. The secret is the files have to be outside of the FM folder loose in the device (not in any folder)
After that I safley removed the device from the system tray icon and powered it on and the songs were all there. It runs an index process that creates the lists, this takes a second.
