Question about Itunes and other MP3 Players
I just got a new computer. I transferred my MP3's from my other computer and they are set up to play on Musicmatch Jukebox. I like it, and it works for me.

I also downloaded the ITunes player because I heard it was good. I bought a few songs, but because I don't have the itunes player as my default, in my music library it has them listed as windows media player files. Is there a way to play them as something other than that?

Where on my computer can I go and set up whatever defaults I want? I'm working on XP which is new to me.

It's going to be an uphill climb to use non-Micro$oft things on XP, but it can be done. You just have to remain vigilant. I found this for you:

To manually associate a file format with an application, but not the application's file icon:
1. In Windows Explorer, right-click (Windows XP, 2000) or Shift+right-click (Windows NT, Me, 98) a file whose file association you want to change. For example, if you want to change the file association for all TIFF files, click a TIFF file.
2. Choose Open With > Choose Program (Windows XP) or Open With (Windows 2000, NT, Me, 98) from the pop-up menu.
3. In the Open With dialog box, select the application with which you want to associate the file format. If the application isn't listed, click Browse (Windows XP) or Other (Windows 2000, NT, Me, 98), and then locate and select the desired application.
4. Select "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" (Windows XP) or "Always use this program to open files of this type" (Windows 2000, NT, Me, 98), and click OK.

To manually associate a file format with an application and the application's file icon:
1. Choose Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer (Windows XP, 2000) or Start > Programs > Windows Explorer (Windows NT, Me, 98).
2. Choose Tools > Folder Options (Windows XP, 2000), View > Options (Windows NT), or View > Folder Options (Windows Me, 98).
3. Click the File Types tab.
4. In the Registered File Types scroll box, select the file type (for example, JPEG Image) you want to associate with an application, and then click Advanced (Windows XP, 2000) or Edit (Windows NT 4.0, Me, 98).
