A little more information would help. But assuming you're using OSX and by download you mean copy....

Connect the USB stick to your Mac. Open two Finder windows. In the first select you usb stick in the left sidebar, in the second navigate to the files you want to copy. Drag and drop the files into the Finder window showing the USB stick.

Once the copy has finished click the eject button next to the USB stick name in the Finder sidebar and then disconnect the stick from your Mac.

There are other ways too. This is just one. If you're doing this already post back with more details of your Mac, OSX version and any error messages you're encountering.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

Purchased music from iTunes is in AAC format, which sounds better IMO but is probably not compatible with your (likely) MP3-playing car stereo. So you would want to use iTunes to make an MP3 version of the songs first (instructions here) and then put the MP3 files on your USB stick.

Another option (if available) is to plug your iPod/iPhone into your car stereo using an AUX input if you have one. I should think a car stereo with a USB port would also have an AUX port.
