I am completely new to this game so bare with me please.

I have purchased a memory stick hopefully to put in the car with music on it.

At the moment I have saved from Utube lots of 'tracks' (I am old school) and wonder if I can put these on my memory stick.   Is this possible please?

Hi,

You definitely can save your music to the memory stick.

You say you saved the tracks from Youtube. I am wondering if you have downloaded the video files. If so that would occupy too much space on your stick and would probably be in the wrong format.

The tracks should end in .mp3 - so perhaps "Feelings.mp3"

If they don't you will need to convert them. There are plenty of "apps" online which will convert files. You may have .wav files so in this case just search for something which will convert wav to mp3. If you have downloaded the video files you will need to play them on your computer so that the sound can be captured
and then transferred to your stick.

I have two computers so I play the video on one then pass it out of the headphones socket to the line in socket on the other computer. I use "mp3mymp3" a program which will record what it hears and convert it to the required .mp3 format. Other programs probably do the same but if you do not have one you can find it at:
http://www.mp3mymp3.com

Then you just need to pass the saved mp3's over to the stick. Hope this helps.

Regards
David

Freemake Video Converter can create .mp3 files from videos.

Its a free download and it works well. However, this is a warning to make sure when you install it that you say no to any extra programs it might want to install as well. Do a custom install and only allow the main program.

Hope this helps.

Here is another method you may find useful.

I have possibly entered more detail than necessary as you may already know how to copy and paste.

You can convert from you tube video to MP3 without the need to download any software.
and if you prefer directly to your memory sick using the following link:  http://www.youtube-mp3.org/

Open  a second tab on your browser to you tube: https://www.youtube.com/?gl=GB&hl=en-GB

Search for the track you wish to download

Play the track to ensure correct track and quality

Left mouse click the URL/Address at the top then right hand click mouse, select copy and left hand click mouse.      (Example URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJFVPxBpezk)

Open the youtube MP3 convertor Tab

To select Left hand mouse click the existing URL  then right hand mouse select paste then left hand click mouse.

Click Convert video

When popup showing “Video successfully converted to mp3” Left mouse click on download which is in blue text.

If using Internet Explorer A bar then normally pops up at the bottom of the page

Left mouse click to the right of the save button and select “save as” and left hand mouse click. (If you select save instead of save as the track will normally go to your downloads folder.

Save as to the folder you wish to save the tracks or if you wish save them directly to the memory stick/drive.



Kind Regards

Alan,

Your method works very well.

I have just converted a Celine Dion video to mp3 with it and it did it in seconds. The download is easy to organise into whichever folder you want to place it so this is much better than my suggestion and indeed one which I will use myself in the future.

Regards
David

There should be a "download" link just below where it says it has been converted.

Click that button and you will find the mp3 in your Downloads file.

David

Hyander Sorry,

David thanks for response you beat me to it Smile

I have now added the following details to my original post.

Click Convert video

When popup showing “Video successfully converted to mp3” Left mouse click on download which is in blue text.

If using Internet Explorer A bar then normally pops up at the bottom of the page

Left mouse click to the right of the save button and select “save as” and left hand mouse click. (If you select save instead of save as the track will normally go to your downloads folder.

Save as to the folder you wish to save the tracks or if you wish save them directly to the memory stick/drive.

If you still have a problem you could send me a P.M with an email address and let me know what browser you use if not Internet Explorer and I will compile a detailed instruction list with screen shots as a PDF.


Kind Regards
Alan...

Thank you very much.

I have this minute printed out both of your posts so I can follow them to the letter.

I will try again today and if no success I will pm you.

At the moment I am using Chrome but have IE to hand if need be or Edge.    I also have Norton Security which at times can be a bit over zealous and stop me from doing things.

I will let you know how I get on.
