Transfer music from ipod to m250

I have a iPod schuffle and I wanted to upgrade to a 2GB unit and I wanted the FM radio option so I bought a San Disk M250. Is there some way I can upload the music I already have in my iPod library to the SanDisk unit and then add more from there?

I'm assuming your iPod music is in iTunes. You can point Windows Media Player to the folder on your PC that iTunes stores music in. For those songs that are ripped from your CD collection, they will appear in WMP to be synced to your Sansa. That's the easy part.

Unfortunately, your music that you purchased from the iTunes store will not. There may be an easier way to do this, but this method will work. First, burn your iTunes purchased songs to a CD, then rip them back to your PC. Set WMP to also look in the folder that you rip to for music in addition to your iTunes folder. You can identify several in WMP so once you establish the library, you won't have to switch back and forth between your iTunes library and this new library. You will then see that music in WMP to be synced as well.

Again, unfortunately, the songs from the ripped library will not have the song, artist, year, genre, etc., but you can edit this information easily. Right click on each song that doesn't have good info, and choose the "Advanced Tag Editor" option from the menu. There are several tabs that will appear in the window, and you can put in as much or as little info as you'd like. You can use your iTunes library to get this information from.

It is a bit of a tedious process, but it works!

Good luck.

If you bought all the music from iTunes store, once you plug in your iPod to computer, iTunes will ask you 'transfer purchases' or not. And then you can copy the purchased music from your iPod to iTunes.
This way is not work for the CD ripped music and website download music. But you can follow this step by step guide to transfer all the music from iPod to iTunes, including the non-purchases songs. It's easy to understand and works pretty well for my iPod.

boogie31 - Go to Windows --> Control Panel --> Printers and Other Hardware (I am assuming you are using Windows XP) --> System --> Hardware Tab --> Device Manager - see if any devices under Universal Serial Bus Controllers have a yellow exclamation mark by them. If so, then double click the device and select the "Drivers" tab in the next window. Then click on Update Drivers.

nikes - Use your transfer program (Windows Media Player, Media Monkey, etc) to select the Properties or Advanced Tag Editor option - then you will be able to change the language. Give me your program name, and I can get more specific.
