I am copying music files to my computer using "Limewire" and want to know how to put them on an Ipod type device or burn them to a CD. How do I do this ?

either use the program that came with your player to find the folder and files and then just add them to the player.

or you can use windows media player, sync up your device with it, and sync/copy to your player. you can also use media player to burn the files to a CD as well.

Unless your CD player can play mp3's you need to "make a music/audio CD" with whatever software your burner has. :)

You need to check the file format of your music burned on the CD-R. If it is .mp3, then it will only play on certain players, and your computer.

You need to make a new CD-R using .wav files (no compression) to play on a "conventional CD player, like your car or home stereo CD player.

There are newer systems for cars that can play both .wav and .mp3. But if your car will not play your CD you made, redo it with .wav.

i had this problem when i got my video ipod. first open itunes and plug in the ipod. when itunes reads the ipod a window will open with the ipods info. on the window near the middle or bottom there will be some boxes and one will say sync ipod automaticly and another one will say manualy sync ipod. click the box for the manualy sync and click apply at the bottom right of the window. now you should be able to drog the limewire songs to the library and then to the ipod.

i hope this helps.
