Most MP3 players come with directions to sync the device with Windows and Macintosh computers. However, the Linux operating system Ubuntu can also sync the MP3 player with your Ubuntu music library. Use Ubuntu's default music player, Banshee, to synchronise your MP3 player with the music on your computer.
