I was thinking about purchasing an iPod (specifically an iPod Classic, not another brand of mp3 player). I noticed something that caused me to question purchasing one. From my understanding, it seems that in order to transfer files to your device, you must first install iTunes, import the mp3s into it, and then you can transfer the files to your iPod. Is this correct? Is there no way to just copy and paste using Windows Explorer?

thanks,
mike.

that is correct....with any ipod you have to use itunes to manage your music

if you get another type of mp3 player this restriction doesn't exist...

i've got a creative labs Zen Vision M and i love the thing..i've had it for 3 years or more and i've not had a single issue out of it

Thanks for the reply dsenette. That's what I was afraid of. Unfortunately, even though an iPod seems to be exactly what I want (storage space, size, functionality, etc.), this is a deal breaker for me. I guess I'll look elsewhere. Thanks again.
