I am getting an IPod soon and I have some questions about Itunes. As it stands now I have my own computer in my room and my family has a computer downstairs. I have most of my music already ripped to my computer upstairs. After I get my ipod i want to rip all my cds on the downstairs computer, then put them on ipod. (Cant do it upstiars windows 98). First of all, can i rip using itunes or do i have to use something like musicmatch? After i put them on my ipod I will just copy them to cd. Another question, auto-synching. I know that when you add a new song to itues it will automatically put it on ipod when you plug it in. (Have to keep my family off itunes) Does it take songs off if i auto-sync. I just read a post about it and i dont think it does but i just want to know. Thats all my questions for now. Thanks.
