Hi,
When you download music from Limewire it automaticaly stores these songs in a foulder, usualy under "My documents". Go to this folder and select all your downloaded songs, then copy and paste them to your Media player library.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Limewire 5.0 sucks!


There are several things that I can see that might be driving your mp3 player haywire:
A) About 1/3 of Limewire songs contained some type of writing in the "Comments" section of the songs' ID3 Tags before version 5 - it may be up to 100% now, and your player obviously doesn't like it. This is going to be a real bear, but I would take one of the songs you just downloaded, open it in Windows Media Player, and right-click the song title within Windows Media Player. Select "Advanced Tag Editor," and delete any writing that appears in the "Comments" section of the ID3 tag. Then try transferring that song to your player and see if it plays correctly. If it does, repeat with all of the songs you just downloaded. It will take you forever.

B) If you use iTunes to transfer songs to your mp3 player, version 5 will not work with iTunes - it simply pastes a data file into iTunes which is not the actual song, so it may appear to transfer correctly, but in fact you have not transferred the actual song file. Use Windows Media Player to transfer instead.

C) The bitrate on songs in version 5 is higher - most mp3 players have a maximum bit rate that they can handle, and ver. 5 might exceed this upper limit. The solution would be to convert all of your mp3 files to a lower bit rate using free software such as Media Monkey.

Without dragging this explanation out any longer, I think your best solution would be to revert back to Ver. 4.1 or so.

Good luck!

Cant transfer limewire music from my computer to my mp3


You can't use Limewire directly to transfer songs to the Nextar. You will need to transfer the songs to the Nextar using Windows Media Player. Limewire puts the songs in a folder called "Limewire Downloads" usually. You will need to open Windows Media Player, run the mouse over the "Library" tab, and select "Add to Library." Once the window pops up you will need to add the folder called "Limewire Downloads" - it may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player is going to add all of those Limewire downloads to its own library. Then, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to the Nextar.

How do you download music on it for free


Get Limewire - make sure your anti-virus software is up-to-date.
When you find songs on Limewire, notice that not every song they have is in Mp3 format - only download the songs that are in mp3 format.
Caution: Some ISP's will suspend your service if you use Limewire.

Other options are Frostwire (make sure your anti-virus software is strong) and Morpheus.

Once the songs are downloaded, go into Windows Media Player --> run the mouse over the Library tab --> a little black arrow will appear underneath the Library tab, click on it --> click on the "Add to Library" option and add your "Limewire Downloads" folder to the list of folders that Windows Media Player searches - it will add all of the songs from that folder to Windows Media Player.

Then use the Sync tab to transfer songs from your computer to your Sansa Clip.

I would highly NOT reccomend the free route, but there it is.

Cant download songs to sansa fuze mp3 player


Limewire will get you the songs you need, but you must upgrade to Windows Media Player 10 to properly transfer the songs.

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.

Use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs downloaded from Limewire to your Sansa. The first time you open Windows Media Player, it will search the "My Music" folder for songs - this may take a few minutes. Mkae sure you have Windows Media Player 10 or 11. You can either move or copy the Limewire songs to the folder called "My Music," or go into Windows Media Player and change Windows Media Player's configuration so that it can read the Limewire downloads folder.
