Music CDs that are stamped by the factory have a format that Windows does not normally recognize, except thru Media player, or other aware programs. That music format is CDA. You need a CD ripper program to convert the CDA file to something Windows does recognize, like MP3 or WAV, then copy the files to your USB drive. Programs that rip CD music to files are UltraISO, Media Player 10, Nero, etc.. Here's one link to using Media Player to rip your CDs. http://portables.about.com/od/mp3players/ht/howtoripCDWMP10.htm This should get you started. ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
