Replacement for Windows Media Player
 
So, apparently Microsoft no longer supports Windows Media Player (WMP)...

My wife has been trying to transfer music from CDs to her desktop, then to her MP3 player, as she has always done - but the WMP no longer lists the tracks, artist, song name, etc. This is apparently a known issue now that Microsoft no longer supports WMP. So, the work around is to manually enter each track, which is a PITA...

What software is available as a free down load so she can go back to a simple process of put in the CD, copy to hard drive, then move to MP3 player?

Where do I get it for her, how do I work it, links, advise...

I always have used IMG Burn.

I should clarify : WMP won't work or be supported in Windows XP or Windows 8...

Media monkey and Foobar 2000 are outstanding free options.

I have just finished, last week, ripping 300+ music CDs in preparation for our US move, via WMP. No issues at all.

So is this something that "has happened" or "is going to happen"?

I'm old - I have Exact Audio Copy... but I haven't ripped a CD in a decade, so...

I submit VLC media player. Interface is old-school, but compatibility is good.

Steps to Transfer Music from a Computer to an MP3 Player. First and foremost, you need to physically connect your MP3 player to your computer using a data cable. In most cases, you do get the data cable along with the MP3 player itself. Match the end-slots of the data cable with the computer and MP3 player sockets, and connect them appropriately
