    In WMP right-click on the song and click "Open File Location". That will show where the file is located.

    Either copy or move the file to My Music.

    You said the song is "on windows media player" so you should see the song in the Window Media Player Library.

    Select the song and right-click on it.

    Sorry for the stupidity, but where is the Window Media Player Library?

    Then open up a search box and enter the song name and search your computer for the location of the song.

    When you open WMP there are tabs at the top: "Now Playing" "Library" "Rip" "Burn" "Sync" "Media Guide". Click on "Library".

    When you click on "Properties" it will show you the file location.

    That means the track is on a CD. Use WMP to rip the CD to Mp3 files which should put them in My Music.
