Without Itunes

Hey everyone, is ther a way to play mp3s on my ipod shuffle without installing itunes? I really don't want to add to my already swamped computer. I just want to drag and drop files like normal mp3 players allow.
Thx

as far as i know, the only was to do that is OINCREDIBLE difficult,

but if you downlaod itunes, then go to preferences and uncheck thr 'copy songs to itunes folder when i add them''

you can add all tehsongs in my music, and they will be sent to your ipod

actually, its OINCREDIBLE easy

search for the shuffle database builder. its a small program you save on the shuffle. drag and drop songs (like a normal mp3 player), run the program, and you're good to go.

another option is other software. what do you use to play your mp3s? theres a plugin for winamp if you use it.
