The Windows Media Player® 11 software does not analyze the sound patterns of songs while transferring. When songs are transferred with Windows Media Player, the ZAPPIN effectiveness will not be optimal because the most melodic or rhythmical song passages will not be recognized. To take advantage of the ZAPPIN feature of the player, transfer the songs to the player (except for copyright-protected WMA files) using the Content Transfer Application with the 12 TONE ANALYSIS set to Automatic or Always ON.
