You need to right click on the [desktop] icon (for the player) and 'Safely 
Remove', and also to *actually_wait* until it has finished copying your songs - 
*do_make_sure* that it has *finished* before removing the player (either a 
flashing red/green light or an animated 'something' depending on the type of MP3/4 
player) sometimes it can take quite a while depending on how many songs you are 
copying over.
