Moving files from iTunes onto MP3 player

I have a Ministry of Sound MP3 player and would like to move music files and podcasts from iTunes onto it. There are no instructions on how to do this. Is it possible to do this?

Cannot find the bit that helps me - all related to a mobile phone!

[…] recent tips shows you how to sync a S60 device to your iTunes. Well, actually, you can use the tip to sync any MP3 player that can be mounted as a mass storage device in Windows. […]

I read that as saying that the tip can also be used as per your requirements. Sorry if I am wrong!

I cannot find "iTunes Agent" so am unable to try this out.

Depends what format you've ripped your tunes in. If it's in the default iTunes format, AAC, your MoS player won't play them. If it's in mp3, though, use something like Xplay click here which allows you to see the iPod simply as a drive, navigate to the folder on the iPod and pull the tunes off either on to your hard drive or on to the other player. I can't think of a way you could do it without going via a computer, though. And don't forget that the music is copyright: you can't legally do that, of course.

I have not managed to get iTunes Agent to recognise the MoS player. Problem resolved by right-clicking podcast and using "Save target as.." and saving it direct to player.
