What you do is first rip your cd to your computer then plug in the mp3 player into your computer and copy the songs to it. If you get a big enough (as in gb) mp3 player it might hold all your music. Or if it has a card slot you can add more songs to it. I have an older 2gb Sansa E520 and bought a 1gb MicroSD card for it. I love mine. The battery lasts for like 20hrs. Look around at all the models. I think you can get real big ones like 16gb or 32gb.
Also you buy the headphones separately. So you can buy some real expensive noise reducing headphones.
I am looking for a type of MP3 music player with a card slot. It needs good head set to block out the noise of the work place. I run a sewing machine on a clothing production line and it is a very noise place, (1) I would like to have a card slot that I can transfer from of my CD music to the card. (2) It needs a larger built-in memory of about 1000+ songs. (3) Long life battery, as I work 8 to 12 hour days.
(4) What are theses WAV, JPEG, MP3, WMA, AVI
(5) Voice recorder so I can make a shopping list.
How do I get the music I want onto this player. Do I down load the music and how much does it cost?
