If you have a USB flash drive, you can use it to store any type of file, including music files. Depending on the type of file, you may be able to play the file directly from the drive without having to download it to your computer first. For music files, you’ll need to download them to your computer and then copy them over to the USB drive.

Here’s how to put music on a usb stick from windows media player.

1. Plug your USB flash drive into a USB port on your computer.
2. Open Windows Media Player.
3. Click the Library tab at the top of the window, then click Albums, Artists, or Songs in the left sidebar. This will show you a list of all the music files in your library.
4. Select the music files you want to add to your USB drive by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on each one individually, or click and drag your mouse over multiple files to select them all at once.
5. Right-click on one of the selected files and click Copy To CD or Device.
6. In the Copy To CD or Device window that opens, make sure that Digital Device is selected from the drop-down menu at the top, then click Next.
7. On the next screen, make sure that MTP device is selected in the list at the top (this is typically selected by default), then click Finish at the bottom of the window and wait for Windows Media Player to copy your files over to the USB drive.
8. Eject your USB drive from your computer when finished. You can now unplug it and take it with you wherever you go!

How to avoid copyright issues when adding music to your USB drive?

When you download music from the internet, it’s important to make sure that you’re not breaking any copyright laws. Many songs and albums are protected by digital rights management (DRM), which means that you can’t copy them or play them on certain devices unless you have explicit permission from the copyright holder. If you try to add a DRM-protected file to your USB drive, you’ll see an error message saying that the file cannot be copied.

To avoid this, make sure to only download music files from reputable sources like iTunes, Amazon Music, or Google Play Music. These stores all sell DRM-free files that you can copy and play on any device, including your USB drive.

Lastly, keep in mind that it’s generally against the law to download music files that you don’t own or don’t have permission to use. If you’re not sure whether a file is copyrighted, it’s best to err on the side of caution and not copy it to your USB drive.

Conclusion:   Copying music files from Windows Media Player onto a USB memory stick is easy! Simply connect your USB device to your computer, open Windows Media Player, select which files you want to copy over, and then click “Copy To CD or Device.” Your music will automatically be transferred onto your USB memory stick for you to enjoy wherever you go!
