I know - really clever to get a present I know nothing about eh!!

He adores my sisters Ipod so I figured he will love this and it saves me having to listen to awful kids tapes in the car!

What I want to do is "upload" the songs on to it (and possibly a cd I have for him...?) before the day so it is ready to go, so to speak

How do I do this? Is it possible to upload a CD onto an mp3 player? Some of the songs will be "normal" as in the old song, Lollipop (his favourite) and Ruby Ruby

Please help! blush

you need to copy the cd onto a pc (it may have software to do this on it already - just shove it in and see what pops up) and then you should be able to attach the mp3 to the computer using a usb cable, and copy the resultant files onto the mp3. does this make any sense??

You can rip the CD using windows media player and then download it onto the MP3 player.

Oh, he'll love it!

MP3s are basically digital music files. you can download them from all the online music sites.

To get songs from a CD I would imagine you'll first need to upload the CD onto your computer (turning the songs into digital music files) and then download them onto the MP3 player.

thanks - will see what happens with the CD... need to find it first!!!

I got it cos it was less than half price in ELC recently (£50 down to £20!!) and thought it is better for his ears cos it is "proper" headphones, not the in-ear types
