Default Music player for MP3s on Laptop

Hi.

For years i have been using media monkey to listen to my mp3s on my HD. I was thinking it might be outdated now and was wondering if there are any better apps out there to meet my needs? It must be able to copy files over to my mp3 player, which im sure most would do anyway. any one got any suggestions for something better than media monkey?

thanks in advance.

most people use VLC or winamp if not the generic one on your OS.

What kind of mp3 player do you have? Can't you simply attach a USB cable and copy your music files from the computer to the player? Why does the player software need to be able to do the copying?

As already suggested, many people simply use VLC to play music files on their computer but VLC won't provide the ability to copy the files to your external player.

I would go for VLC. You won't need a separate program to watch movies, which is great!

If your MP3 player is USB you should be able to just copy over directly.
