Using Windows Explorer
- 1). Connect the MP3 player to your computer using the USB sync cable. Make note of the name that comes up in the notification tray. This is the name that your computer identifies the MP3 player with.
- 2). Click the "Start" button in the Windows taskbar. Click "My Computer.".
- 3). Double-click the name of the icon that represents your MP3 player (see Step 1). Most basic flash MP3 players will be listed as "Removable Disk [F:]." The drive letter will be "F" only if you don't have any other MP3 players or multiple hard drives connected to your computer. The root storage directory of the device will open. This is where all of the songs are stored.
- 4). Drag and drop the audio files you want transferred to the device into the root directory. Some MP3 players have a dedicated "Music" (or similarly titled) folder. If applicable, drag and drop the songs into the Music folder.
