      They do that for a reason; It would too easy to give songs to friends who aren't the "owners" of them.
      I think there are programs that can do this, though.
      If I want to send songs from iTunes to iTines, I'll either connect 2 computers via router or make a MP3 disc that contains all the info.

      when you've got your iPod hooked up to your computer, click on the name on your left hand side of iTunes. this will take you to the settings. there's a "movies" tab. you can tell it to sync from here, either all movies or just the selected ones. or, on the initial settings screen, if you are manually sync'ing music/movies, you should be able to just drag the movie in question from iTunes - movies to iPod - movies. at least that works for me

      short answer no, i've used a few in the past and have always been dissapointed with them, i've had a few iTrip's die on me and then i tried a generic one, similar quality but over all they tend to be a pita, its really not to hard to actually integrate the ipod into the stero and its definitely worth it, the fm transmitters are fine for holding you over in the mean time, but there isn't one which is better then all the rest, they all have very similar quality

      I just borrowed my bosses MONSTER fm transmitter, the one that plugs into the charging port of the IPOD and the 12V adapter on my car, im impressed with the quality, its pretty clear considering its competing with all the strong radio signals around where i live. I'ts just like listening to the radio and static was very minimal.
      The green bastard gives it 2 THUMBS UP.
      Next week I install an IPOD adapter to my OEM deck nice and clean like.

      so every time i put a mp3 cd into my computer itunes doesnt show the song titles or anything. how do i get itunes to read the mp3 disc and store the songs?

    11. 01-23-2007 07:17 PM #61
      correct me if im wrong but im sure you'll have to edit the ID3 tag's manually for cd's that are burned

    12. 01-23-2007 07:59 PM #62
      eh. i give up. i dont even know what a ID3 tag is

      Kind of old but worth a response. Here is my problem w/ this. Not everyone uses their iPod for music that is on CDs. I have a live music collection that is over 800 shows(each show is roughtly 3 CDs) and this is not copyrighted material. It's free to anyone who wants to download/trade it. While I do realize that the large majority use their iPod for CDs that they own. A very large community uses it for Live music that is free to all. The fact that I can't transfer shows from my iPod to a friend's computer irks me to no end.

      Just wondering if anyone had Just the Ipod Shuffle 1st Generation (BOX) laying around. Let me know!

    19. 04-05-2007 11:01 AM #69
      Okay,
      I have one 30gb video ipod. I have a mac and a pc. I formated my ipod on the pc. Then went to charge it on the mac. And i saw that I could re arrange playlists, etc. So then i went to add music and BLAMO! it added the music.
      What's going on here. It is because it's linked up to the same account? is it because i went from pc to mac and not mac to pc? this is kidna weird... I thought ipods could only be used on one computer.
      anyone?

    20. 04-05-2007 11:27 AM #70
      ^Did you DL any vids to your 30 gb yet?

    21. 04-05-2007 11:39 AM #71
      yeah why?

    22. 04-05-2007 11:40 AM #72

      So of course, as soon as I think I can clean up my hard drive on my laptop because all my songs are on the ipod... my 20G ipod breaks. I sent it to ipodmods to see what was up with it. They say I need a new main board and the cost is $100, and there is about a 70% chance that I will lose all the files on it. This is my third broken Ipod, and I don't want to buy another one... but more impotantly, I don't want to lose all my music.

      So I guess I'm asking, is $100 reasonable for a new main board, or should I try elsewhere. Has anyone had to do this, and still been able to save all their files on the unit??
      Thanks in advance for any input!

      Can someone PLEASE instruct me on how to rip my encrypted DVD's to my 30gb video Ipod!?

    25. 05-17-2007 01:52 AM #75
      So Im having a problem I never had before. I import a cd on itunes, so I can then put it on my ipod. Cept once its imported on itunes, the songs are out of order.
      So I just made a new folder, and put the songs from the cd I just imported there, and put them in order. But soon as I transfer that to the ipod, they are out of order on the ipod just like when I imported the cd on itunes it finished out of order.
      How do I fix this? Help!? Its very frustrating.
