both my kids have one but they do their own music thing. We currently do not have a computer. The boys cannot answer my questions clearly though. I was complaining about the big CD player I take with when I work out. (not so often recently). For my birthday I got a IPOD shuffle. Perfect for me, I don't know 200 songs! Anyway, my question is can I record my Cd's to the ipod? If so How? Don't you have to purchase the songs through Itunes? Can I have my Cd's copied to the computer and then copied or moved into Itunes to then copy to IPOD?
