I have been using a Sony Walkman MP3 player for the last 3 or so years.  I have a couple and the oldest is about 15 months now.  With the Sonys you download their Sonic Stage software and store all the music on that.  However, Mrs Muppet has got an ipod shuffle and, having registered for iTunes, I haven't got a clue how to get the music from one to the other.  I currently have about 250 CDs worth of music on the Sonic Stage software and do not intend loading all the CDs back onto the computer to get them onto iTunes.

 The man in the shop said that you just drag and drop the files but he quite clearly didn't know the first thing about Sonic Stage (or MP3 players for that matter).

Can anyone give me some advice?

 Thanks

You need to find the mp3 files on your hard disk.  Then go into iTunes and add the files into your music library.

Sonic stage does not necessarily transfer to mp3's, it uses Atrac3 files. These are not compatible with ipod's.

Depends on how you set up Sonic Stage to record your CD's. I use ATRAC3 as it it better quality than MP3

Also depends on where you chose to store your music files. If you did record as mp3's then you can just drag and drop the files.

I think there are very many free and shareware programs that will convert the files.

The "newest" walkmans are drag and drop, you don't need sonic stage for them.

Sonic Stage - Tools - Options - Location to save imported files - now see where it currently stores your files.
