Well you install any software that came with it. Then, plug it in. It should show up in My Computer as a drive. It can be used as such, cut, copy, paste. When you want to store a song you simply choose that drive as the destination for that file. If there is any software run that first, and see if there is any built in copying/compression software that you may find useful. Always have a read of any manuals & help features first.

Good Music Downloading Programs
Since the invention of MP3 players, purchasing CDs has become much less popular.
Many people, especially younger generations, prefer to do everything on a computer -- it's much quicker and already in the right format for music players.
Free music-download programs allow users to share their music.
Frostwire
FrostWire is an improved version of LimeWire it doesn't transmit viruses and is much faster.
It has a built-in music player to preview your tunes as they download; a library that shows your shared, incomplete and saved files; and a community chat service.
This simple-to-navigate program is probably one of the most common download programs, so there's usually many results for searches.
http://www.frostwire.com/
Bit Torrent
BitTorrent is the best torrent-downloading software. http://www.bittorrent.com/
It's a little more complicated than direct music sharing programs, but it's much quicker for downloading full albums or complete discographies.
The best sites from which to download torrent files are The Pirate Bay and Mininova (See Below).
http://thepiratebay.org/ http://www.mininova.org/
This program works well for people with large download needs; however, for single songs, it's not worth the hassle.
Ares Galaxy
Ares Galaxy is a lesser-known product but is definitely one of the most efficient.

Its library and playback features are advanced enough to render most music players obsolete, and it is compatible with both audio and video.
All songs download directly to the library in less than five minutes and can be organized by artist, genre or album.
Search results are extensive and are returned in less than 60 seconds.
Also, a chat service allows you to directly exchange files with other users.
Overall, this is a fast, well-organized program with multiple advantages.

Transfer music form fostex 440 to a PC


Step one- download the open source program Audacity. http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/?source=directory
Get an 1/8 inch stereo jack to stereo RCA outputs (some digital cameras with vieo capability have these cords.)
Plug your tape deck "Line Out" to the "microphone" input of your sound card if it does not have a "Line level Input." You will have to adjust the microphone level once you enable it in the microsoft windows audio settings accessible through the control panel file.

If you are using a mac, you will have to open the CDEV to set it up.

Then it is simply a matter of getting used to using the program, which does not take too long. Just remember to save either each tape side or each song as it's own project.

All open audio files in the display will play simulataneously, which is why you want to close them and start new.

If you need other tweeking types of programs to reduce hiss or potentially disk pops, there are some offerings also at sourceforge http://sourceforge.net They cater to Windows, linux and Mac.

The sampling rate you choose- if not variable- will affect sound quality and file size.

Nextar MA933A says it accepted music but it didn't


When you download songs, save it first on your My Music folder for you to easily track the song list. Once you have successfully downloaded the songs, insert your MP3 Player. Format your MP3 Player first by right clicking the drive and click format. Once it is formatted, Copy the songs from your My Music folder then Paste it on your MP3 Player drive. 

*Note: Try to play your saved song in your Windows Media Player if the song is working fine before you copy it on your MP3 Player.
Drop a comment if you still have questions. I would be happy assisting you.

Ipod music is gone, but still says it has stuff on it


If you do this through itunes, it should be okay. The trouble is everytime you want to update your ipod, you will need to connect it with itunes and itunes will need to have your existing library that you created for you ipod to perform a quick and troublefree update.

If you are going to get an external harddrive you will need to re-direct where itunes is saving your music and video files. Because itunes will be using your internal harddrive for the system files (that is where windows is), it will automatically save the music to your internal drive. I suggest reloding an updated version of itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/ here and when asked where to install it, redirect it from C:programfiles.......to your external harddrive. This way the itunes music folder will be on your external harddrive.

Hope this helps
