Media Players

There is a wide variety of software that will allow you to play music on your computer. Most new computers have at least one player installed on them, and in general they will do just fine. However, certain file formats are not supported by all players, which is the main reason you might need to have a few different ones. I have tried most of these applications, but not necessarily the most current version. Click on the product name to link to the website. They are all relatively user friendly and all free.
