Hi Kevin, is it just as easy using the Nano to transfer music from CD, and
is it the 8 and 16 gig Ipods that are accessible, I've only recently thought
of getting one so haven't read mail about it before, any information would
be greatly received.

To be fair, transferring music to an IPOD Nano using windows is a doddle,
you don't need a niche operating system to do it.  You don't even have to
use Apple's I-Tunes player.  Once you've told I-Tunes that you want to
manage your music manually then it's a simple case of browsing your music
using windows explorer, copying using control + C and then alt tabbing into
the I-Tunes windows where you paste your music onto your Nano.  What could
be easier than that?


If you want to play with I-Tunes then you can keep your collection in the
I-Tunes library and either sync the lot if you've got less than 16GB of
music or sync selected playlists.  I can't believe that's any easier on the
Mac than it is on windows.

Rog, there you have it mate - the problem is itunes working with windows not
transferring .mp3 files which as you correctly say can be moved to any
removable media using windows exploder.   What the original poster never
said is if the end user has an Apple machine running itunes - in which case
plug in the ipod and within the files menu select sync then sit back and
Robert, as they say, is your mother's brother! 


The difficulty begins when you try and do the simple thing on a windows box
and that is why friends I am sitting on an Apple mac book and have an ipod
nano.   :-)

What then Roger is the need from other contributors who say it would be
helpful if they had the name of the iPod and tht to know about iTunes is
necessary.  I think my friend must know about iTunes because she does listen
to music on the playher.
