Hello all. I have just bought myself a laptop, and with a bit of a learning process, i have figured out, how to basically use it. As an avid music lover, thats is one of the reasons i bought the laptop. However, my question is this: How do i download music? I have a portable CD Player that goes with me everywhere. I also have some blank RW CD`s, and some blank RW DVD`s. I want to download some music, add them to either of the disks, and place them in my player, so that i can listen to them wherever i go. I was informed that some music files you download are not the right format, (i have no idea what that means), and that i have to be careful what files i download, to make them play on my player. Where do i even begin? How do i get the right music files, how do i put them onto either of the disks, and do i need special equipment ? I have no idea what to do, so i am hoping that someone can lead me in the right direction. Thank you.
