    No iTunes will actually Rip the CD's to unprotected MP3's when you import them from CD. But you must set the preferences before you start importing CD's. I would also reccommend the option of letting ITunes organize your files for you, then it will put each CD in its own directory.

    If you have already ripped all you cd's. Just change your i Tunes folder, change your preferences to convert all imported files to MP3 and then add your old itunes folder to the library, after having deleted all hidden files from the directories, and then choose consolidate library from the menu. ITunes should move all the files to your new folder, nicely organized and convert them all to MP3.


    You can use playlists to export the files to any player. Heres How:

    i) Make the playlist of the right size to fit on your player (128 MB) just a small list in this case.

    ii) Use the select All function while viewing the playlist or CTRL + A.

    iii) Choose copy, or CTRL + C

    iv) Create a new folder in windows or browse to your mps player from my computer, and paste, the actual files that were in the playlist will be pasted.


    I personally prefer iTunes, windows media WMA isx even more proprietary than iTunes. Next thing you know you wont be able to listen to your WMA's without upgrading to Windows Vista. (who knows but I wouldnt put it past m***osoft)

    Just my $0.02 worth.

    Happy New Year

    Yeah, I got one of the 300 series packages for $38 (plus shipping) about a two weeks ago. It had the 64mb player and the housing w/ amp & headphones, batteries included. Works like a charm. It also has a mic on the player that I've been using in my classes to help keep notes during lectures (it allows me to study the back of my eyelids during those 8 am classes). I've got about 1 1/2 hours of music right now, which lasts longer than I expect to be underwater.

    I'm wanting to see if this casing will work with one of the 700 series players with FM tuner and more memory.

    I've seen some of the 700 series players on eBay for prices from $40 to $120, but the only person selling both the player and housing was asking for around $200.

    $300...Holy smokes. I got two of them way back for $40 each. Maybe I should sell one of them and finance a weekend trip to the Keys. :eyebrow:
