What files you try to transder? Spotify streamed files are only playable in Spotify.

Spotify Premium for music listening, user since April 2009. 100M cable modem and 1M mobile network.

Spotify is a streaming service. 

To add music to windows media player you need to purchase the songs so that you can download them and add them to your local library.

That makes so much sense!! I'm thinking this is legal music, why can't I load and burn it? But with it being so cheap, it's a streaming service, not a download. That response was so simple and common sense and so helpful, Thanks....I was starting to feel stupid!!!

Hello and welcome:

 

Sorry but Spotify service content can only be played in the Spotify device apps and/or API's developed and approved Apps such as Spotiamp which is a Winamp style Spotify player that can play Spotify service content.  If you have a permium account you can check out Spotiamp as a different type of player design and it is skinnable. Check it out here http://spotiamp.com/
