MP3 Players

MP3 players are portable music playing devices which are capable of storing an incredible amount of music.  To load songs onto an MP3 player you will need a computer with either Internet access, to download music, or a CD drive.  A CD drive is used to convert CDs from their current format into a format that can be recognised by the MP3 player; this process will not affect your CDs.
