Default How do you load mp3s on the player if you don't have computer in Federal?

Hello PTO friends. I will be self surrender to FCI Petersburg on March 2. I was looking on the commissary list and they have a mp3 player listed. Not trying to ask dumb questions but how do you load mp3s on to the player if you don't have a computer? Any advice would be appreciated.

Not a stupid question at all!

I don't know how it works in fed facilities, but in my husband's state facility he would purchase and download the music from a central kiosk.

They do have computers in the Feds. Not personal ones but they have several set up. That's how they email you. That's also how they purchase and download music.

Feds have a limited number of computers and they do not have internet access. However that is what the email system and the music download system is thru. My daughter was at Alderson when the mp3 players were a trial. She said that the music selection was very good.

The music stations are the same PC's that inmates use to write emails and print labels. You purchase credits to buy songs and they usually update the selection at least twice a month. A year or so ago, the prices were 16, 24 and 31 credits which equals to .80, 1.20 and 1.55. Make sure that he listens to the songs that he wants...many people have bought a song for 16 credits to find out it's an acapella or some other version of the song. However, there are multiple songs that have different prices. Take his 15 minutes to check things out.
