In Windows, it's usually most convenient to use Windows Media Player to sync recorded TV shows and other media to a portable media player, but you can also use Windows Media Center.
A wide variety of devices are compatible with Media Center, including many MP3 players, storage cards, USB flash drives, and even some mobile phones. Refer to the manufacturer's website or the documentation that came with your device to see if it's compatible.
Some devices require proprietary software to sync media, and therefore can't be synced using Media Center.
Connect the device to your computer. If you're using a portable device, turn it on.
On the Windows Media Center start screen, scroll to Tasks, and then click Sync.
Click Start Sync to copy your media to your device.
If you're syncing recorded TV shows or other media and you don't see the option you need in the priority list, you can create your own by creating an auto playlist in Windows Media Player. Any auto playlist (or regular playlist) that you create will appear in the syncing priority list in Media Center. To learn more about auto playlists, including how to create them, see Create or change an auto playlist in Windows Media Player.
