Software Media Players

Popular software media players like iTunes, Windows Media Player, and Winamp can do more than just play back music and video. Find out how to perform common tasks such as: ripping CDs, burning MP3s, creating playlists, listening to Internet radio, downloading podcasts, and more by reading these step-by-step tutorials.

Converting Audio Formats

Being able to convert between audio formats gives you the freedom to play your music on a wide selection of hardware and software. The iPod for example can’t play digital music files in the WMA format and so you’ll need to convert to a format that it understands. Software programs such as media players can also be choosy on what formats they work with and so converting to the right one is essential.

Organizing Your Music Library

As well as creating a music library and listening to it, you should take time out to organize and backup your digital music on a regular basis. Maintaining your music library is essential housekeeping that will not only make it easier for you to locate your music, but will also ensure that if a disaster strikes, you will be able to recover your precious investment.
