MessageHi Neal:
I did not use the disk that came with my Ipod Shuffle at all.  It is still in 
the shrink rap and that is where it's going to stay.  Refer to my e-mail post 
from last night or actually, early this morning to find out how to format your 
Ipod Shuffle from within the control panel, my computer, it's easy and 
painless.  The Anapod program works very well even though some might consider 
it to be a bit tedious.  I have restored Windows Media Player 10 and converted 
my CD's to MP3 files and I'm loading music into my Ipod Shuffle right now.  
Remember there are two versions of Anapod, Anapod Explorer and Anapod Shuffle.  
Depending on which Ipod you have will determine which program you will need for 
your Ipod to be recognized by the software.

  Subject: [bct] another anapod question

  OK, Perhaps there is hope.  I remember when I tried to get my ipod up and 
running, there were two steps.  Someone please tell me if I am on the right 
track.  In order to get my computer to recognize the ipod, I had to load a 
program on the CD I got with my ipod.  This was not itunes, but a program to 
simply have the ipod recognized by my computer.  If I use Anapod, do I still 
have to do this?

  Secondly, when people have loaded the ipod and Anapod shuffle, have you had 
any trouble running any windows audio applications such as win amp, easy cd 
creator, etc.?  When I loaded itunes, it took out all access to other players 
and recorders.  When I uninstalled it, it didn't put back what it took out, so 
my computer did not even recognize my CD rom drive.  It took me 4 hours to 
browse the web looking for the line I needed to enter in the registry to get it 
back again.  I don't want this to happen again.  So, hopefully your answers 
will tell me that this is a safe way to go.  I do need to know, however, if I 
need to load the application from the ipod disk first.

  Thanks for all your help.  Who knows, if I try this and it doesn't work, I 
may not be
