Re: my mp3 player
Re-run the installation CD, this will enable you to "repair" the installation by adding the missing files. The first time you connect the player, it may say "connecting" for a while, but 30 minutes, for instance, isn't normal.
Go ahead and do a firmware upgrade as well: Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

You really need to install a program that can "rip" the music from the CD to the MP3 format. I used to use exact audio copy, but there are hundreds of the programs around
You can read about these programs on wikipedia, or go straight to the EAC site to download a program. Check what version you need, MAC or Windows CD ripper Wikipedia the free encyclopedia Exact Audio Copy
Install the Windows driver included in the product package
before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver
CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load
automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as
a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the
Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does
not prompt you automatically.
Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired
digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop
the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player
device icon as well.
You can set up the SonicStage software on multiple PC's / Laptops. You can also transfer songs from your MP3 player to your PC and Laptop or vice versa.
Try rebooting your laptop while the USB MP3 Player connected to the USB port. After reboot, try clicking on the installed SonicStage icon. If this goes through then your MP3 player will be detected and you can now transfer music to it.
I feel someone is a little peeved but hey calm down

You have a disk to download music.
Is this a floppy disk or is it a cd?
Some computers nowadays dont come with floppy drives due to They are a little out of date.
Most drivers/programs ect.. are now usually on cd or dvd because it is quicker/easier & well.... Quite cheap.
1 stly. If it is a floppy disk read what it says on the front & do a google search for the exact same software
google (blah blah blah software free download)
& download / run
(blah blah blah) being the software name
IF you have a cd & the cd is smaller than the usual size cd
These smaller disks are no different to an ordanary cd except they have less disk space on them & they are cheaper.
Put it in your disk drive (In the centre) Close the drive & double click (if it doesnt auto-run) on your cd drive & click on the program & it should load up all being Well.
You DO NOT have to install software for putting music onto these mp3 players.
If you have a music cd,you Could copy it onto the mp3 just buy popping the cd into the cd drive & copying the track to the mp3 player.
You Also DO NOT have to have software for downloading music onto your mp3 players.
Head over to the I.tunes website (for example) search & find the music you want & download to your mp3.
you have to get music on to your windows media player and plug in your mp3 player and create your sync list for what songs you want on your mp3 player and it downloads itself in about i minute per song
