    Most MP3 player devices if they have a disc mode should be readable by any Mac with Mac OS X 10.6.4 or later.  If they do not appear in the sidebar look at the instructions to show items in the sidebar on my tip on ejecting discs:


    If the device does not have a disc mode, ask the manufacturer if they have a plugin to make it compatible with iTunes.  If not, you may need to install Windows to load the device's files:


    Lastly, once you get the MP3s dragged to a folder on your Mac, iTunes can then import them. iTunes does not support Windows Media DRM based files.  For those you'll need to run Windows.

    http://www.flip4mac.com/ supports non-DRM Windows Media files and converting to Quicktime which iTunes can then read.
