Garmin nuvi 760, don't seem to be able to load music onto it
I would like to put some music on my sat nav. Have ripped from cd with media player and then tried to sync onto sat nav. However, no files found on sat nav. tried with a sd card. Music on there and can be played via pc, however the sat nav can't file mp3 files. Help would be much appreciated as I am off on a motorcycle trip and would like some music for the long journey. Thanks.

First you need to convert the songs on the CD into mp3 music files then you copy these mp3 files to your mp3 player.
There are several freeware rip programs on the Internet that rip CD songs into mp3 files.
Do a Google search for these rip programs and install the program on your computer.
You can use Windows Media Player, it can rip music CDs and convert the music files into mp3 music files.
Your Garmin only supports MP3 files and iTunes is all MP4. The Best way to convert them is with "Real Player sp" Which is probably on your computer already or downlaod it for free. Open the music library and right click on the centre. There you will see "Converter" Select convert to MP3. Don't open iTunes. Instead go through; Start, my music, iTunes, library. This way you can drag a whole album into the converter. Plug your Garmin in with the USB cable and go through; Start, my computer, storage device H. At the bottom of the converter you can select where to send the converted files. Select the device H. Now press start and let it do it's thing. When it's finished you can see the old files in MP4 format with the new files in MP3 format listed under. Drag and drop is only a copy. You can delete all these files after to keep it tidy. All the original stuff is still safe and you Garmin should now have music on it. Try it with a small tune first to test. Best of luck. Regards Chris4fingers
what you can do is try and move the music onto the drive and not into a folder. Also if you are using a Garmin GPS then you cant download music because the type of device doesn't allow .mp3 files of music and it has its own music interface
it might be due to the fact that you garmin cannot read AAC music format(the format itunes uses). try using windows media player to rip the CD then put the music on the card using windows media player. this should take care of your issue.
You don't need Creative's software to load music to your MP3 player Use FreeRip to rip your CD's and use Windows explorer to transfer your ripped music (use copy & paste functions) onto the Storage Media/Music folder in your X-Fi.
I have Windows XP SP3 and installed Creative Centrale without problems.
I can RIP music from CD's using the program but I find the program freezes up after ripping a few CD's - I think that the errors are linked with the database program loading the CD data.
