1•
Navigate to your setup menu on your player. Do this by using your scroll tool to scroll down until you see "Setup." Highlight this option and select it.

•2
Select the option for "Connections." Find the option for computer or PC connections and select it. Select "Windows Media Player" from the new menu that comes up.

•3
Make sure you have version 10 or higher of Windows Media Player to ensure you can convert your music. If you don't, click the "Upgrade" link below and download a newer version.

•4
Connect your USB cable and AC adapter to your player. Some players have cradles that these connections must be hooked to. If you have a cradle, then hook the USB cable and AC adapter to the cradle. Hook the other end of the USB cable into your computer.

•5
Switch to USB mode on your player. If your player has a cradle, put the player in it. Turn on your player's power. If you've set up your player correctly, there should be a symbol signifying that your USB is connected on your player's screen.

•6
Go to "My Computer." This should be in your Start menu or on your desktop. Look for your player. It most likely will be an icon with your audio player's brand name. Select and open this icon. Select the folder that has your music on it. Right-click (just once) on the folder(s) that has your music in it. Look at the top of your Explorer page (on the computer) and select the "Edit" menu. Highlight and select "Select All." Select "Edit" again, but this time select "Copy."

•7
Make a new folder on your hard drive. Make sure you have plenty of space. Your local disk drive should be sufficient if you have enough memory. Name the folder whatever you want. Once you've created the folder, select it, right-click the folder and select the "Paste" option. Now just leave your equipment to do its work, since it may take a few minutes to transfer. Your music files will be copied to the new folder without the SAT encryption.

I should have mentioned that the contents of the player have been copied to an external hard drive and the player itself no longer works. There is 23GB of music files in WMA.SAT format. I have plugged the Ext. HDD into my PC and tried to get both WMP and iTunes to open them but no go. Any other suggestions?
