The first time you connect a device
that plugs into a universal
serial bus (USB) port, Windows
automatically installs a driver
for that device. After a driver is installed, you can disconnect and reconnect
the device without performing any additional steps.
Before you install your device
Check the instructions included with the device to determine
whether a driver should be installed before you connect the device. Typically,
Windows detects a new device after you connect
it, and then installs the driver automatically. However, some devices require
you to install the driver before plugging the device in.
Also, while most devices that have power switches should be turned
on before you connect them, others require that you turn them on during the
installation process. Because of issues like this, it's a good idea to read the
instructions included with a new device before you connect it.
If the instructions that came with your device contradict the
information in this topic, follow the instructions that came with the
Plugging your device in
If your USB device
uses a power cord, you should connect the
device to a power source and turn it on before connecting it.
Next, determine which USB port
you want to connect your device to. If your computer has USB ports
on the front,

YOU MUST NOW " SYNC" YOUR DEVICE WITH MEDIA PLAYER THIS IS HOW TO DO IT.
Set up a device to sync in Windows
You can use Windows
to copy music, videos, and pictures from your Player library
to a portable
device, such as a compatible MP3 player. This process is called synchronization
There are two methods for syncing items to a device: automatically or manually.
When you connect a device to your computer for the first time, Windows
Media Player selects the sync method that
works best for your device, depending on the device's storage capacity
size of your Player library. After your device is set up the first time, you can
choose a different sync method if you want.
Start the Player, turn on your device, and then connect it to your
computer. If prompted, select the AutoPlay option to sync the device using Windows Media Player.
Do one of the following:
If the Player has selected to sync your device automatically,
click Finish. When you do so, the Player will sync your
entire library to your device. After that, your device will automatically sync
every time you connect it to your computer while Windows Media Player is running.
If the Player has selected to sync your device manually, click
Finish. Then, in the Sync tab, you
can select the files and playlists you want to sync manually. For more
information, see Sync manually
in Windows Media Player.
