Download Rhapsody and use that..... I don't think Itunes works with other brands of mp3 players except their own..... Rhapsody does the same thing and it should fit your needs :)
PS: Rhapsody is legal just like Itunes :)
iTunes won't work with MP3 players other than iPods, unless you install another product like iTunes Agent (ita.sourceforge.net), and even then it's no guarantee, plus you may find iTunes Agent difficult to use.
You should be able to use Rhapsody, Windows Media Player, or other programs like MediaMonkey or Winamp.
Once you choose the program you want to use to copy songs to your GX400, you'll need to locate your songs on your computer's disk in order to load them into the program's library. To find out where iTunes accesses your songs, click on iTunes' "Edit" menu, then "Preferences", then the "Advanced" tab. You'll see the song directory listed under "iTunes Media Folder Location".

Deleting Music Files On Your Sansa MP3 Player When your player is connected to your computer with the USBconnector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files onyour player. Your player will appear as Sansa m230 or m240. Follow these steps: Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connectthe USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. Theplayer will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer. (Can't findthe USB Port on your player? SeeThe Basic Controls.) Delete your music files to the player with software tools likeRhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client. To use the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Clientsoftware to delete files to your player please refer to the Windows MediaPlayer, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client help file. NOTE:While you canstore and organize your audio files on your player using folders with names youselect, your player will ignore folders and names. Instead, your Sansa playerwill extract information from each audio file so that you can use the softwaremenu to navigate your files by artist, album title, song title, and otheruseful criteria.
The Rio Carbon is completely incompatible with iTunes (which uses AAC format). It only accepts mp3, wma, and some WAV's. The Rio Carbon is still the best mp3 player I ever owned, but since Rio doesn't make them anymore, it will never be compatible with iTunes. You can use it with Rhapsody's Mp3 Only service, or any music service that gives you the files in mp3 format - but you can't sync the songs through the music service's "synchronize function" - you have to download the files to a location on your computer, and then use the Rio music Manager to transfer the songs to your device.
The songs have to be in the right format. iTunes format is not compatible. If you do not buy a Rhapsody subscription and refresh the device through Rhapsody on the computer you initially synced it to, those songs will become useless as well over time. I would download songs in mp3 format only - whether paid or unpaid. They will never give you grief.
I first suggest that you use Windows Media Player on transferring songs to the player. Rhapsody is a p**n in the a** when i use it to transfer songs to the player. Well back to the topic, make sure the device that you have is set to MTP when you are transferring songs to the player using rhapsody.. If it will not transfer format the player using Settings and then FORMAT if it did not work format the player in MSC mode. To do this, go to settings then to USB MODE then change it to MSC and then connect the player to the computer. After connecting the player to the computer ti will be detected as a removable disk drive. Right click on it then choose FORMAT make sure the file system is FAT32. THen after the format is done. Chnage the mode back to MTP then transfer a song using rhapsody. If all else fails using the windows mediaplayer program. Here are the instructions on using the windows media player program.
Here is what is going on. All iTunes songs are in AAC format. The Insignia Pilot cannot read thos files, and the Rhapsody music service cannot read them either. You will need to redownload all of the songs that you want in Rhapsody itself. If you do not want to pay the monthly fees, then I would not download any songs from Rhapsody - they will cease to work after your Rhapsody subscription expires.
You have a couple of options. You could buy an AAC to Mp3 Converter software - this is not free, as far as I know - you also want to be careful, because some sites that advertise these products are scam artists - they don't let you try the product before buying.
Another option is to get Limewire or Morpheus - the free versions of thse services run extremely slow and give you a lot of ads, but they allow you to download Mp3 format songs for free without monthly fees.
Mp3 players just aren't as easy as they used to be.
I use Rhapsody with Vista. You need to go to Rhapsody's website (or Best Buy Digital Music Store, which runs the same software) and download the updated version, which will work just fine.
Purchased music from iTunes can be put on Sansa players as well when you set-up Rhapsody to manage your music. Have the program detect your music library and then all you have to do is drag and drop to your MP3 player.
You cannot use Itunes for anything except an Ipod device. And any files you get from the Itunes or Rhapsody for example are copy protected and require specific software to copy to an MP3 player.
If your songs are in MP3 format (not downloaded from Itunes or another subscription site) then you can set your Sansa to "MSC" mode which makes it act like a flash drive. Then you can just drag files to the "MUSIC" folder on the sansa.
If this is on an Apple computer things are different - if you are let us know.
