Connect the MP3 player to your PC and see if you can drag the MP3 files off it onto your PC.
If successful, open iTunes and "add to Library" the files you just dragged from the player
Connect the iPod to your computer, iTunes should launch and you should be able to add those files to the iPod.
In cases like this, it is also good to not allow the iPod to Auto Sync. Any files that are not on the PC but are on the iPod will be removed if you do not control the sync.
I'm sure there will be other suggestions to follow
I apologize in advance as I am a "mom" who is a newbie to this technical mp3 world.
Here's what I'd like to do...please tell me if I can and how to do it.
My daughter has an mp3 player w/music we no longer have access to and I would like to somehow get it on my ipod nano as well. Is there a way to take her music files and burn them to a cd so that I could then put them on my ipod??? Or anyway to copy what she has on her sansa mp3 player onto my ipod nano?
I have xp on my computer.
Thank you for any help.
