Techies please! Putting music from WMP to External Harddrive - not in devices

HEy, i want to back up all my music from WMP by putting it onto my external harddrive but when i try to 'sync' it the EH doesnt appear in the device list. (im using Vista)

just plug in your external hard drive and it should show up in my computer. device with removable storage/usb device hope this helps. you can also check if the computer is picking it up by going into control panel/performance and maintenance/admin tools/computer management/disk management

sync is for use with specialist media devices like mp3 players etc,
just select the files in explorer and copy them via my computer to save uncertainty, remember to back up your drm licences if applicable

ahhh , so you wanted it set out like your wmp playlist/libary is that what u mean?, i have mine all named correctly and it sits in alphabetical order so i can find anything in like seconds as for albums i made a seperate folder named it and dragged the corresponding tracks in. wmp does not hold actual files its like links to files stored on your computer im thinking you wanted to save time and have it all set out nice on your external i dont think this is possible

btw the sync option is to attach a device to wmp so u can convert and send music to it, you wouldnt use this option for an external hard drive because it has no playing capabilities its just for storage
