It is simple enough if you just want to transfer music from another computer to your Windows Media Player. You can also do that when you are using the USB cord to sync your laptop to your TV. However, what about if you want to convert a DVD to Windows Media Player? That’s where this step comes in.
First of all, I recommend you find a good program. There are many available, so it will be a matter of taste and cost. However, there are some programs that are free, but that have limited functionality. I highly recommend going with something that is paid. You will be able to use it forever, without any hassles.
You’ll also need to purchase a drive that is large enough to hold all the movies and music that you want to transfer. It is not usually needed, but it does help the process. You could also get a CD burner that supports the same format as your media device, but this is not necessary unless you really want to spend the extra money for the software. I suggest going with a USB flash drive for the convenience.
Once you have all your equipment ready, and your software CD/DVD burner installed, you’re ready to start the copying process. The first thing you want to do is create a blank disc that has the same size as your Windows Media Player files on your hard drive. This will require some patience. If your Windows Media Player files are too large, you may have problems with the copying process. Make sure that your blank disc isn’t scratched in any way, because that can slow down the copying process immensely. Be patient!
Once you have your blank disc, you’re ready to import your media into Windows. You will want to locate your player on your computer, and go to the device’s menu. You will see a drive icon, and you will want to select “mount”. It may be necessary to right-click the drive in order to make it accessible, and then click “select”.
Now it’s time to copy all of your files onto this blank disk. To do this, you will use the mouse, or the keyboard shortcuts that are commonly provided with Windows. You will want to locate your player in the device list, and you will click Browse to locate all of your files. Right click on the files you wish to copy, and then select Open. You will be asked to save the files on this disc, and then click Continue. Once you have finished this step, you will be asked to wait until the files are copied onto the disc.
Once you have completed the copying process, you will be asked to restart your computer. If you had any problems, you can always restart your system. Then, you will want to open up the Windows Media Player program, and then click Play. You will hear the track you recorded playing in the background. The Import/export option should be selected, and the file that you want to copy should then be chosen.
That’s how to import music into windows XP. You should now be able to play any music file you like from your hard drive! If you have trouble loading up the program, ensure that your internet connection is working properly, and then download this program from the web.
Make sure you install the program onto your computer. You can do this by clicking onto Start, then All Programs, and clicking “Programs”. Once the program has been installed, you can then proceed with the installation. You will need to provide the name of the hard drive where you want to import all the songs into. After this has been done, click OK.
Now that you have the program installed, it’s time to start importing the files. Click Browse to open your folder where the files are stored, and then type the name of the music file you want to import. Click Browse again to find the rest of the files. You may want to bookmark each folder for future use. You can then click on the songs you want to import to begin the copying process.
When you have completed this task successfully, you can then click on Play. The music player should open up and display the files you have imported. It should be a continuous process, so don’t be afraid if it doesn’t open immediately. Open the notes tab or whatever the specific file you were looking at in the other program. Use the arrow keys to highlight that particular file and then use the F7 key to open the file in the media player.
