does this work for music downloads/burns if not what do i need to do
No, not for music. If you bought your PC from a company like Dell, or Gateway, then you probobly already have what you need to burn music to CD. Look for WinAmp, MusicMatch, RealPlayer, or just use Windows Media Player.
Also, I suggest simply searching this forum or Google for information regarding playing, ripping, burning, converting file types, and the programs to do so. It's everywhere, just query your needs, read up on the subject a bit, pick the appropriate info, then if you need help with a certain procedure, come on over to Bleeping and present your question.
There are just to many variables involved to give accurate feedback that pertains to your specific situation.
me is useless with all of this and i need all the help i can get
I wouldn't say that you are useless, the fact is if you figured out how to use this forum, I'd say your qualified. With some basic search terms, Google really is all the help and much more.
Hope this helps,
