Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.
When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.
If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

Are you trying to synch tracks directly from a CD. If you are, you first have to rip the tracks. In windows Media player, you first need to setup the type of file you want to rip to (MP3 in this case). Right click on the top bar of the WMP and select Tools|Options. Select the Rip tab and under the rip settings, change the format to MP3. Select the quality you want (higher quality means less music can be stored on your unit). 192 kbps is a good setting. Now, click OK or apply as appropriate to get out of the menu. Insert your CD and click on the RIP tab of WMP. Your CD's tracks should automatically come up with checks marks beside them. Start the RIP process. Once it is complete, you can then drag the newly ripped files from your library to the Walkman and they should be synched.
go to this website download. and click on the download link if that wont work for you if all your trying to do is rip cd's to a collection then you can also use windows media player to do it, open up windows media player and click on the rip tab then insert your cd and when it comes up with all the names and information of the cd then click on the rip button at the bottem of the screen and in about 10-15 minutes your cd will be in your new windows music library and should be saved under my documents\my music from there you can put your new music on your mp3 player :) enjoy
Here's what you want to do. Use Windows Media Player to re-Rip the CD's in Mp3 format. Go to Windows Media Player 11 --> Rip --> Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3 (you can get to Rip options by moving the mouse over the Rip tab, and a small black arrow will appear - click on the arrow). Once the songs are in true mp3 format, you can then use the Sync tab in Windows Media Player to transfer the songs.
Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on
the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is
the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply
drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX'
For Windows XP, you can utilize Windows Media Player 10 software

the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option
setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the
desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio
format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to
confirm the settings. Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the
music to your computer. When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player
to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location
window. To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply
drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window. When the
files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware'
