    What are these "problems" exactly? What format is the music in (m4a, wma, mp3, etc etc)? What version OS X? What version Windows? How exactly are you trying to "take" the music from one to the other?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    The format is mp3, I have OSX 10.8.5
    version of Windows Vista is Version 6.0

    I inserted the stick - drug the music over into where it shows like a mp3 player, i hit 'sync' and it copied it to the stick. BUT when i bring it over to MAC - i can't get it to import, it won't do it... I did the "switch" thing - i put it into the application folder, it converted music i'm guessing, but once i say import, it doesn't...

    I have no idea what this is supposed to mean. I take it you are using some 3rd party software, but a thumb drive shouldn't look like an MP3 player, unless it is one (you should clarify this).

    If you insert a USB thumb drive, it'll mount like a CD in Windows' Explorer. Just drag and drop your music onto that drive. When you plug the drive into your Mac, drag and drop off the drive when it mounts.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
