mp3 / itunes help needed from someone smart...!!

I got an mp3 player (sandisk sansa - - non-ipod) for xmas and an itunes gift card. Yee-ha!
How the hell do I get the music I buy from itunes into my mp3 player??
I've read about 50 different things online, but what is the best way? I can get the songs onto my mp3 player, but all the song title/artist info gets lost and it's all under "unknown." I'm so frustrated because somehow I got SOME songs on and managed to retain all the info, but I don't know how I did it!!!

If someone could give me step by step instructions, I'd REALLY appreciate it!!! Thanks!

Step 1 - have you downloaded the software that came from your mp3 player?

could you call the mp3 player manufacturer? or even the customer service desk at a place like best buy might be a good place to seek help.

The Sansa isn't compatible with iTunes according to Apple's docs:

However, what you could do is use your gift card and download the songs from iTunes. Then, rip those songs onto a CD. After that, you'll have to re-import them through the software used with your Sansa.

It's a bit clunky, but at least you'll get to use your gift card, you'll make a backup CD in the process and you'll eliminate Apple's DRM from your songs.

Or you could just go get a shuffle and forgetaboutit.

I had to do it 2 weeks ago....... it sucked!!
Itunes makes it horrible for mp3 users.

There is some free software online converting files to mp3.

Google it and it should come up with a few options.
Hope it helps
