I have an MP3 player which i bought in France a number of years ago,forgot the make and no indication on player,and i wish to transfer the files onto my pc.
I can play the music files when the device is connected to my pc but i want to transfer that music onto the pc so i can play without the connection.
I downloaded Winamp in the expectation that the files would be transferred to no avail.Winamp plays all the files whereas WMP does not and even ITunes does not.
Is there an method for transference that i am missing.
I believe i have all the appropriate codecs.
I imagined that when i place a player or a CD into the pc that the music would automatically be saved onto the pc in the appropriate folder.
Apologies for being confused in my interpretation but i hope some one can advise.
Does the player show in Windows explorer? If it does it should be fairly easy to locate the folder on the player that contains the files and then highlight them and copy to a folder on your hard drive.
You are not looking for a 'Save' option. Highlight files on the MP3 player, Right click and look for 'Copy', then highlight the folder on your hard drive, Right click and 'Paste'. Or you can highlight the files on the player and Left click and hold Left mouse button down and drag the cursor to the folder on your hard drive. Release mouse button and files should then transfer over.
Thanks a lot for the info,just finished transferring and playing in Winamp.
When box game up i saw how much was being transferred and got worried about the amount,only 109 songs but 493 items when i clicked on more details that showed exactly what was happening.
Again big thanks,an 'old dog' can learn.Just one more question...
decided to buy new MP3,do i do same in reverse to transfer to new device.??
