Tis the season and my wife says she wants an Ipod. What I need to know is since I am not an Apple user, I'm a PC'er, can I convert compact disc files into Ipod type files and then load them onto the Ipod. Please don't tell me I need a MacIntosh. Special software requirements? These questions are probably very rudimentary but I am unsure as to where to start with the Ipod issue. Other ideas?
