Downloading to an MP3

I purchased an insignia Kix MP3 from Best Buy and am having trouble downloading music from ITunes library on my Mac laptop. I converted the extensions on the files from m4 to mp3. When I see the music files on the MP3, they are all there, but when I turn it on to play, although they show up, the screen says unsupported, and therefore do not play. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Using Mac OS to transfer MP3's to my daughter's Insignia Kix - For each MP3 i add to the Kix I also end up with an extra file "UNKNOWN - Unsupported" that the Kix player usually just skips past when playing through the playlist. Sometimes the player does hang up on one of these files though... Do i need to do something to the mp3 files prior to loading them to avoid this? Adjust ID3 tags or aomething??

I am having trouble downloading music to my Delstar DS 809 Portable Media Player. Please help as I am computer challenged.

Hey! Once you download music, you then transfer the music to your Delstar. I'm not sure whether or not it's allowed to post peer-to-peer (generally illegal) program's websites on this website. Therefore, let's say that you purchase your music from an online company such as Apple through iTunes or Rhapsody. After purchasing and downloading the music you want through iTunes or Rhapsody, you then are able to transfer the files onto your Delstar. You can either save the files to your Delstar (using iTunes) or going to the file's location in Windows Explorer and then moving them to your Delstar. This same method can be used with Peer-to-Peer programs. However, said such programs run the risk of a virus piggy-backing onto the music files and, consequently, onto your computer. Torrenting is another method as well. If you say that you are computer-challenged, your best and safest bet is to do it through iTunes. It will cost money, but it will be safe. Therefore, I have provided this link and video that explains how to utilize iTunes. Computer skills are not easily learned, and mistakes will occur along the way. Patience and research are always a great way of tackling a computing problem. I've noticed that, over time, my knowledge of computers has grown fantastically just from everyday use and research. Good luck!

How do you download music from our computer to the

It is hard to provide any useful suggestions without knowing the type of cell phone your son is using.

Normally he would put the memory card in the cell phone microSD slot (provided it can support 2gb card), plug the USB cable from computer to cell phone (if it supports this). Normally the phone will have also got some software apps CD which should be loaded to computer. This will provide the necessary functions to load music files to the phone.

Alternative to USB is bluetooth connection which both the computer and the cell phone will have to support. He can transfer music files that way.

I am not sure if he can copy the files directly from the computer to the memory card and play it on the cell phone as data formats are not standard. Also iTunes files need to converted to mp3 format. If these are protected iTunes files then it becomes a bit harder - best to burn a CD and then rip into mp3 format.

Once again these suggestions are useless if cell phone cannot play music (mp3 or WMA etc) files, does not have microSD slot, does not have USB or bluetooth support.

Connect your phone with the card in it to your computer, and move the files over to the 'music' folder on the phone using the Media Manager application that is part of Blackberry Desktop Manager.

You need special software to remove the DRM protection from the Itunes. I will send it to you for free, Just send me an E-mail asking for it to geokohler and I will attach the program you need as a zip file to my reply. Once you remove the copy protection you will be able to copy your music to any type or number of devices. They don't seem to mention the garbage the embed in there music that you paid for and can't even use. Anyway, this is an easy work around. You simply install the software on the computer that is authorized to play the music. You cue up all the music you want to remove the digital rights management software from and let it run while you are sleeping. As you sleep the software plays the music and records it at high speed into a new folder. when you wake up you have a folder full of clean mp3's with no DRM. Now you can do what ever you want with your music. Teach your friends how to do this too. You have the right to make backup copies of the music you payed for so this is totally legal under the rules of the fair use act. It's just illegal if you then trade with your friends after you strip of the DRM garbage. Hope you find this helpful. If you need a walk through send your number too and I will call you for free when you get the software and I will teach you how to use it. Please take the time to come back and rate this a fixya after I set you up and get you running. That's all I ask. If you need other help get back to me too. I love helping people when big companies try to screw them.

How to download songs

If you have a standard usb plug-in then you should be able to drag and paste songs you already have. If you mean actually downloading songs then there is great software like "youtube to mp3" converters that can turn youtube movies or videos into mp3's that function on mp3 players or computer media players. Look on google for "youtube to mp3 converter" for the download file. Hope this helped.
