How do I get music from a CD to my MP3 player?

  Migwell 17:24 18 Jun 2010

I am using a Creative Nuvo MP3 player and want to Childrens songs on to it for my Grandson while on holiday.
I have Windows 7 on my computer and use an I pod myself these days. I have no problem using this with Itunes. I can't seem to find a way of getting the music needed to transfer to the Creative NuVo MP3 player and play. What am I doing wrong.
I did manage to copy and paste a number of tunes from the CD via Windows Explorer but it won't play and shows (No Music) on the Nuvo even though the files can bee seen again therugh Windows Explorer.
I had no bother when I had only Windows XP and the Creative Nuvo, but all seems different now I have Win 7 and only have Itunes to play and transfer music to my Ipod these days, and Windows Media Player will not do the transfer the way it used to under XP
Please help

I use the standard Windows Media Player. It has a function to rip music from CD and save it as MP3's on to your hard disk. From there you merely need to transfer it from the hard disk to the MP3 player.
