    How can I transfer music from my iPod to Windows Media Player?

    WMP is not built-in iPod support, so you will need to use another media player, such as iTunes or Winamp, to get the music from the iPod to the PC (I don't know if iTunes will allow you to do, but Winamp will certainly be).

    If you then copy the music files to your personal music collection, they appear automatically in the WMP library.

    Go to computer stores, get an external hard drive of 1 TB capacity. Ask for one that you can just simply copy and paste to transfer files.

    I have a. Digital WD Elements. 1 TB vapacity. It works very well. No action of fancy, complicated to transfer, just copy and paste or drag and drop files.

    Keep all the files on external hard drive image?  Nothing else and no pictures on the desktop?

    Keep all image files both places?

    What is the best way to go through thousands of images in the Organizer to identify and place them in files?

    Once I've placed a file, I just leave it in the entire catalog or a way indicate to me that it has been sorted?

    As overwhelming, any tips/shortcuts/schemes, you can offer are welcome!

    As I only have the version of the EP, here is some info on the organiser:

    Independent of how this feature works, you want to have your photos in one place and have a backup (second copy) somewhere else. All hard drives will not be successful at some point - some more early, some late - never trust to have your files in any safety devices if they are on a single disc. Once you have your sorted, it would be useful that you will organize/name/tag new photos immediately if the task is relatively short and simple. I copy my photos on my internal hard drive for my camera, take a quick look with preview to see who needs some changes and then decide where to put them - either drop them immediately after naming them or bring in an editing application and then file them away.

  • How can I transfer music from iTunes to a SD card files

    Hello, I have a 32 GB micro sd with adapter inserted into the appropriate slot ready to go, and I would like to know how can I transfer a Playlist on it. I know that I can one song at a time, but it's very long and physically trying to move the selection, either on the sd card or on desktop, does not appear to work, so I was wondering if there was another way. Thank you

    Go to the playlist, control + a to select all, drag to disk.  You will not be able to read music files from Apple.

  • How can I restore favorites... accidentally deleted the external hard drive!

    I have recently reinstalled Windows and IE8, but before I did, I saved all my files on an external hard drive.  My computer upward and the race and then began to manually recover my files from my hard drive.  Thinking that I had recovered everything what I needed/wanted, I then deleted everything on my external hard drive.  Unfortunately, I forgot to copy my favorites on my computer!

    Is it possible that I can get back my (old) Favorites from a previous installation of WIndows on my computer?

    In addition, in recent days, I have placed thousands of files in the Recycle Bin and have deleted however, I've heard that the files that are deleted in a computer can be recovered, but I don't know how to do this.  My old favorites would be there somewhere?

    You can also to the above questions, Microsoft stores my old favorites anywhere in their system as my username/password?  If there is anyway to recover my old favorites, I of course would like to learn to do this, because at the moment, I have no basics!  Well sad really. I should have been paying attention to what I was doing!

    Hi Arlywig,

    Once removed the HDD data can't be recovered. However, you can use your favorite search engine to browse third-party data recovery software and use this software to recover data.

    Note:   software use of third parties, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

  • How can I access my Microsoft Virtual PC on an external hard drive with Windows Virtual PC on my new computer?

    For a few years, I have been using a set of VPC on external hard drives (.vmc files both .vhd located on external drives) with the Microsoft Virtual PC/Virtual PC Console on a Windows XP computer. They worked perfectly.

    However, I just bought a new computer with Windows 7, and I'm unable to access the VPC on the external hard drive. I installed successfully, Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode on the computer, and I copied the file to the host machine's .vmc. However, when I try to open the virtual computer, I get a message saying that the VPC was "impossible to write in one of its virtual hard disks.

    I've tried everything I can think of, but the only thing that works is to copy the .vmc and .vhd in the computer file. The problem is that I use the VPC for training online, and I have 16 of them. If I copy everything in the computer, I will use all 500 GB of disk space.

    There must be a way to access the VPC for external drives. If I can do it on the old XP computer, it should be possible to do it on the new Windows 7 computer.

    Help, please.

    Thank you!

  • How can I transfer music from my computer to a flash drive

    I have music in my windows media center. I want to transfer to a flash drive. can someone tell me how. Thank you.

    To add to the good advice of Arya S Asok
    When you right-click the selected (highlighted)
    Group of files... click on "send to" and select
    the drive letter for the Flash Player.

    It is best if you create folders on your
    Flash drive to save the files in because what he
    may be a limit to how many files, you can
    Copy in the root directory of the drive.

    In this case, you receive an error that says:
    "Impossible to copy the XXXX: the directory or file cannot.
