    If I pull songs from a cd (proper cd from a store) onto my PC then put them
    on my creative 256mb mp3 player, when I check it while its still plugged
    into my PC it says the song (or songs) are on the mp3 player, but when I
    pull it out the usb and then try to listen to those paticular songs all the
    others are still there but the one's from the cd dont seem to be on the
    player.... But yet again when I plug it in and my computer, right click on
    removable drive (whatever its in) and explore, there it is! Tell me why
    someone please

    You dont say so. so I assume that you ARE converting them to MP3 format
    before putting them on to your mp3 player.

    Hmm dunno. I thought they automaticaly went to mp3 files when you ripped
    them off the cd. If not was do I have to do?

    1. Check your players documentation to see what (if any) bit rate
    limitations it has for MP3 files.

    2. If there are limitations in #1, check the MP3s that won't play to see
    what their bit rates are.

    How do you check an MP3s bit rate? Most any ID3 tag editor will tell
    you what it is.

    What program are you using to "Rip" the CD.
    I suspect that from what you have said that you are just copying the files
    from CD to PC this will just give a copy of the file in the original format.

    OK. I dont use media player to rip CDs, In fact I rarely use it at all.
    BUT I just looked at Media Player and if you go to TOOLS then OPTIONS then
    RIP CD this gives you the option to change the format and change the bitrate
    (Quality). When I rip CDs I usually choose 192 bitrate or higher (I notice
    that media player only goes up to 192).

    Presumably if you choose the MP3 format & 128 bitrate it would be ok for a
    MP3 player.

    If someone else uses media player then they may be able to give you more

    Personally I use EZ-CD Extractor.

    Ideal mate tried and tested... :)

    Whats the best programme to rip cd's? Plus to convert them etc..

    One last thing is there a way I can fit a film, video, movie (mpeg) etc onto
    a 700mb 80 min cd? Or do I have to use better bigger cd's?

    Cheers for your help

    I would suggest that you ask about best CD ripper as a new post
    Personally I use "Easy CD-DA Extractor" from poikosoft this gives me lots of
    choices of bitrate and file formats.It Locates Track Information for artist
    & title from the internet.

    as for DVD films onto 4.7gb DVDs
    I think that most would say Shrink DVD,
    Personally I use DVD X copy Platinum
