Can I download the music I have on my Window Media Player (on my computer) to the Kindle Fire? If so, how?

You need to convert the files into MP3 format. Media Player files are WMA and won't work on the Fire.

If they are MP3 files you can copy them directly to the Fire's Music folder after connecting it to the PC with a USB cable. Or you can upload them to the Amazon Cloud Player if you have a Cloud account. If they are WMA files you will have to convert them to MP3 files first.

My media player files are all mp3's. I get them from amazon and then move them to my mp3 player from media player. You just coy them directly to the fire's music folder with the usb cable. I put most of mine that were internet downloads in the cloud.

Many of us have our own cd's that have been ripped to our computers. Those are WMAs unless we convert them after ripping them.

I ripped most of my cd's also, If they converted, they did it on their own.

If they are MP3's from Amazon, they do not use any space in the cloud. If they are from other sources, they will deduct from your allotted space.

Unless you have a paid plan, like the 20GB/$20 plan. Then you get unlimited space for music.

WMP can be set to save as MP3 by default, just as iTunes can.

I use that program very little. I find it to be very non-intuitive. Every so often I burn new copies of my music to play in the car, and that's about it.

Thanks R.D. I checked it out--limited time offer though for the unlimited music. Now have to decide if I am going to use that much.

I already transferred my media player files to my Kindle and as you know, they won't play. What's the best way to convert my media player files to mp3 ? and once I do, will they overwrite the existinf files on the Kindle or do I have to delete them?

S. Harrison, to set MP3 as the default rip setting...when Media Player is open, click on "tools" on the task bar at top. There is a choice for "options". Click on that. When the options menu pops up, there is a tab for "rip music". Click on that. Under the heading for "rip settings" is a drop down for "format". Select "MP3". From that point on, WMP will rip your CD's in MP3 format.

Thomas, there are a number of programs available to convert WMA files to MP3. Many are free online. It is also possible to use iTunes to convert them. In my experience however with converting from WMA files to MP3, if you have the original CD, it's faster and simpler to just re-rip it into MP3 format.

The other issue is data loss. When originally ripping a CD into a specific format (ie WMA), you are creating a compressed file and losing some information. This is generally not perceptible to the human ear. But now you are taking that file and converting it again into a different format and losing more information. Still, it's probably not an issue for most of our ears, but it could be. You are ending up with a music file that is not a very good quality.

Since there is no FAST option for converting large amounts of music to another format, and considering the downgrading of quality, my suggestion is to re-rip the CD if you have it. It will probably be faster, and you'll have a better file.

I have converted my files to mp3 and when I downloaded them on to my kindle all of the songs were there but some of them did not have any time behind them so when I went to play it there was an error. These were the most important songs I wanted. Is there a way to download only those songs and not the rest in the media?

how do you convert files to MP3??

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 3, 2012 7:35:31 PM PDT
To convert from video song to MP3 download youtube downloader then find the song on youtube and the downloader will convert to MP3 then use the cord from your pc to download to your kindle. I have done this many times.
