I use a site named e Tomi Pro to download mp3 songs. I think it costs $10 a year to use the site, but I'm not quite positive. It seems to work well. Hope this helps :).

If you can let me know the model ex: Ipod, you need to have itunes software. Anything else I would need to know the model. songs re generally 99 cents each at some websites. otherwise you can copy her cds to the computer and convert them into mp3s then put them on her mp3 player.

LIMEWIRE IS FREE, HOWEVER ISN'T THAT ONE OF THOSE ILLEGAL SITES?

I guess the first question I have is what kind of player is it? There should be a website for it with a FAQ section and there should be a Get Started section in the manuals that come with it. There's always iTunes ($), but you should also be able to download music you have on CDs to it as well ("free"). Good luck!

I was very interested to see what advice you got because it seems like there is always a big cost with the free sites. I have never heard of Limewire but will check it out. I only know that what I thought was a free site "Kazaa" infested my computer with viruses. So I guess have fun but be aware there may be a cost that is damage to your computer....ok, here is the edit to my response...I just checked out Limewire and it is not free...they charge a fee...that is not free to me. Good luck.

Most MP3's come with software to download, so that when you do download a song it will transfer it to that file. Limewire is a free website to download music from. All others you have to pay for. My daughter who is now 10 got a MP3 two years ago and hers came with no software. All you do is download a song, save it to MY DOCUMENTS music file and then drop and drag it to the MP3. If you have any other ? feel free to email me at [email protected]____.com

Limewire.com is a great site and the best part is it is free and actually user friendly. With the player it all depends on what one you have, most times you just have to install the software that came with it. The other thing that is best to do is to read the manual that came with it, there is either a paper one or one when you install the player onto your computer.

Well, start simple. If you have the USB cable connected to both the computer and the MP3 player, the computer should recognize the MP3 player. Next, start with a CD of your own that she wants a song from. Once the CD is uploaded on the computer, you can transfer that file to her MP3 player. Have I lost you yet? hahaha. Downloading from sites is an additional step. If you start with this, at least she'll have some music on her player till you figure the rest out. What kind of MP3 player did she get? Sometimes they include software for downlaoding from sites. CareyB

Hello. Just wanted to let you know there is a free download service called Limewire. I have an MP3 player and the one I have came with software to instill on the computer BEFORE you hookup the player. You should have her download songs or copy songs from cd's onto the computer then use the software to move it all to the mp3 player. The one I have was very straight forward and easy to use. I have a Creative. Hope this helps. If not let me know and I could email you some more or something. [email protected]____.com
