  • ipod questions...

    Yeah...im prolly gonna get an ipod nano thingy tomorrow or something and im just wondering about these itunes thing...whats that like a program or something that comes with it? Cuz i was reading up and it said it ony works with windows 2000 and xp...blah, blah(i got a windows 98) so im just wondering...is the only way to get songs onto your ipod through the itunes? like do you have to have itunes in order for you to load songs? cuz if so, im fucked..and im just wondering this cuz i dont wanna go buy something and then find out i cant use it cuz i got a windows 98(kinda livin in the stone age, i know...)

    also, isnt there like a cord or something that comes with it? to load songs or something? and do you need a certain computer for that?

    and about this battery business...what the hell? what do you gotta get a new battery every time it screws you over, does it come with a battery? or when it runs out do you charge it? if so, does it come with a charger?

    i feel like a dumbass, but i just wanna know what im getting myself into..i couldnt find nothing on this stuff on google, so....

    The iTunes is a program that comes on a CD with the iPod. You use it manage your iPod (up songs on it, organize them, pay-per-download some of the internet etc.). You also get a cable, which you plug into your computers USB port in order to upload songs (with the help of the iTunes program). I have Windows Xp, so I don't really know if iTunes will work under 98, but I think it should.

    There is no battery, it comes with a charger; an alternative way to charge it, is by connecting it to your computer through the USB cable, then it automatically starts to "suck" electricity from there. And beware, compared to cell phone, the iPod takes a hell of a long time to be charged completely.

    Hope this helps!

      Oh, and one more personal tip, the first time you connect your iPod to your computer (after you've run the setup), iTunes will be set up to "automatically update you iPod", so it will try to upload every single mp3 from your computer to your iPod, it might thus be a good idea to switch to manual update in order to avoid gettinge every mp3 you own automatically loaded on the iPod.

          ^are those the requirements for the itunes or the ipod?

          so you aboslutely need itunes in order to get songs?

          is there any other ipod type mp3 players u would suggest for my situation? (like i heard there's like iriver, etc.)

          EDIT: i just looked up the different mp3 players, and all the one's i looked at required Windows XP...wtf? is there an mp3 player that does NOT have to require windows xp? i mean, how come i gotta have a special program for the ipod? isnt there a way to just load the songs onto the ipod from the songs i downloaded from winMX? lol...everythings gotta be so difficult...lol

          do all computers have a USB port?
