Trying to download music that I can transfer to a SD Card on

by slimcooper2002 / July 5, 2015 5:32 PM PDT

I have a Dell XPS 8700 with windows 8.1. Last year I bought a new 2014 Impala and it has a slot for an SD Card that supports mp3, wma, aac, m4a, and aif file extensions to play music from. I'm having a problem downloading music to the card. I've tried Spotify, Limewire, and Rhapsody, all premium editions. Spotify has a "Offline" feature that I thought downloaded songs to your PC/Device but I can't find them on the PC. Rhapsody allows you to download to a location but doesn't support transferring to an SD Card so I moved the songs from Rhapsody to Windows Media Player. I put in the SanDisk 32Gb. Extreme Plus SD Card. WMA recognized the card but when I went to sync it said "The device does not support synchronization of subscription content". I tried it on an mp3 and it transferred everything. Seems if I have the card in a device it would work, but not if its just in the computers card reader. Is there a trick to getting around this? Or can someone suggest a program that makes this possible?I'm not trying to get free music, I pay the monthly cost for Rhapsody and Spotify.
