How to download music onto Windows Media Player

Before you can start using Windows Media Player to play your music, you need to download some tunes. The process for doing this is different depending on where you purchase your music, but we’ll walk you through the two most common methods: downloading directly from a music website, and ripping CDs.

###Method 1: Download Music from a Website
If you want to download individual songs or small collections of music from a website other than iTunes, you need to follow these steps:

1. Find the song or album that you want to download.
2. Look for the download link on the page. This button is usually labeled as “Download,” “Buy,” or something similar. If there’s no explicit download link, right-click (or Control-click on a Mac) the song or album title and select “Save Target As” (in Internet Explorer) or “Save Link As” (in Firefox) to save the file to your computer.
3. Choose where on your computer you want to save the file(s). It’s usually best to create a new folder for each artist or album so that everything stays nice and organized. Once you’ve selected a location, click “Save.”
4. Depending on the size of the file(s), it may take a few minutes for them to finish downloading onto your computer. When they’re done, open Windows Media Player and click on “File” > “Add File to Library” in the menu bar at the top of the window. In the pop-up window that appears, find and select the downloaded file(s), then click “Open.” The files will be added to your Windows Media Player library and will appear in the main window when they’re done importing (this could take a few minutes). You can now play them whenever you want by double-clicking on them in Windows Media Player!

###Method 2: Rip CDs
If you have physical CDs that you want to add to your Windows Media Player library, you need to rip them first (this just means converting them from audio CDs into digital files). Ripping CDs is easy: just pop one into your computer’s CD drive and open up Windows Media Player. Click on Rip CD in the upper-right corner of the window; if Rip CD isn’t showing up, make sure that your computer’s CD drive supports digital audio extraction by clicking on Tools > Options in the menu bar and going to Devices > [your CD drive] > Properties > Supported Modes; digital audio extraction should be checked off). In most cases it will be checked off by default, but it doesn’t hurt to double check!

Once Rip CD is clicked, all tracks on that CD will be ripped in sequence and added automatically to your Windows Media Player library as they finish converting; this could take a few minutes depending on how many tracks are on the CD and how fast your computer is. Once they’re done importing, they’ll show up in Windows Media Player’s main window where you can play them whenever you want!

How to troubleshoot Windows Media Player

If you’re having trouble playing music files on Windows Media Player, there are a few things you can try to fix the issue.

First, make sure that the file is in a supported format. Windows Media Player can play MP3, WAV, and WMV files. If the file is in another format, you’ll need to convert it to one of these formats before you can play it in Windows Media Player.

Second, check that the file is not corrupted. This can happen if the file was not properly downloaded or copied from another source. To check for corruption, try playing the file in another media player or opening it in a text editor. If the file is corrupted, you’ll see gibberish instead of readable text.

Third, make sure that Windows Media Player is up-to-date. Microsoft regularly releases updates for Windows Media Player to fix bugs and add new features. To check for updates, open Windows Update and look for any available updates for Windows Media Player.

If you’re still having trouble playing music files after following these steps, contact Microsoft Support for more help.
