MP3

Can someone tell me how you put Jack's podcast on an mp3 player. I have windows XP, do I need to download a program or can you do it from the windows media player?

I have a Creative Zen MP3 player. I just download the file, open up the player (shows up as a drive in My Computer) and drag and drop.

When I click on the download button on his pocast it opens up my windows media player and statrs plaing his podcast. I tried clicking the sync button and dragging it over to the mp3 icon but it has the little circle with  a slash through it. ends up not letting me drag it.

Right click the download link and select "Save Target As" instead of left clicking it.

For many of the non-iPod players, you can open it as a drive on your computer after it's connected via USB.  For the iPod, you need to use iTunes or one of the independent clones.

The easiest way is via a podcast subscription.  This way, it can automatically download and sync the new episodes (for the iPod).  That way, you don't need to do anything except connect it to the PC.

If you need some specific help, please let me know.
