If you like to use itunes the Archos mp3 player line (not the AV 500 or 700 pvp line) syncs w/ iTunes. They will not, however, play the .m4a formatted songs. iTunes lets u convert songs u have ripped, in .m4a from your cds to .mp3 ''advanced'' folder as for purchased songs you have to burn to cd then import as .mp3 in ''preferences''.

Otherwise, you could go with any newer Cowon player, but they read as an external hard drive

And if neither of those companies do it for you... Windows Media Player is available for Mac. This allows you to use any mp3 player with ''Plays for Sure''( i think)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
