So whats the best site for a friends little girl to download music to her MP3 player & which music format is better?

Apple Music Store through iTunes in the most comprehensive.

You do not say what mp3 player she has, if it is an iPod then you would have no problems, if not then a little conversion is required.

It's not a iPod, just some small MP3 player from Tescos.

You can't play tunes from the iTunes music store on any player but an iPod: they're copy-protected AACs, which non-iPods don't support. Incidentally, no download store supplies tunes in mp3 format because you can't add DRM to mp3s: with the exception of iTunes, as discussed, the rest all provide copy-protected WMAs, which, by the way, won't play on iPods.

There is a relatively easy way to create mp3's from iTunes downloads that has been mentioned here many times before. Simply create an audio CD from the downloaded tracks in iTunes and then rip the resultant CD back as mp3's.

I use a CD RW and then erase the disk in Nero and reuse it time and time again.

The easy way is to buy the CDs as mentioned. All the online stores bar a couple which I am unable to list here due to the rules offer formats that are restrictive needlessly or expensive. The best way to get a collection of songs going would be to use ebay and buy the cds cheaper than normal.
