Re: downloading from limewire
Well, you can download some more songs........this is how you put it on the nextar....plug your nextar up to laptop / pc................go to my computer (u see the the drive) click on it to open.....now find the folder that has your music and open that up.........copy and paste....(or click and drag)...note this is very important when you are finish (do not just unplugged) look on the lower right side on the task to to eject the device safely............have fun

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.
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.
1. go to Limewire website. Click on "Get it Now" and download the program onto your computer.2.Open Limewire and click on "Audio" from the left tool bar. Then enter the name of the song, group or artist in the boxes and click search.
3.Choose your song from the list that Limewire offers you. Check the type of download it is before choosing. Some downloads are for dial-up Internetconnections, others are for cable, T1 and T2 Internet connections. Choose a song that fits your connection and click the green download arrow below the list of song4.Wait for the download to complete. Some songs will take longer than others will. It will give you a list of the songs that are downloading and the time remaining to complete their download.
5.Save the downloaded song to your computer. Then you can transfer it to a CD, an MP3 player, or to an iPod.
Try this. We had this problem too and ultimately scraped itunes and went to www.limewire.com .
Burn you purchased songs to disk and then download the files to your device or just download limewire where all songs are Mp3 formatted and it is really user friendly. Download, highlight at lower screen at limewire and hit explore - then save file to mP3 device (just be sure to always highlight target song) and it is really easy. Good Luck and Have Fun!!!
You need to get ITunes, and then go to your limewire library, select the songs you want and press Enqueue and then press save file, save it to your documents and then go to Itunes, press file, import, then click the file you saved and it will automatically upload all the songs you saved, once your done plug your ipod into the computer and it will open itunes and download the songs to your IPOD
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.
heres what i did:
when u plug in your mp3 player, s screen should pop up click view files. when you download songs in limewire they should save in your documents so you pull your documents up and their should be a limewire file. go to the saved one. then transfer the songs saved to your mp3 player and it should work! worked for me :)
