    The short answer is no. Itunes is only compatible with Ipods.

    You would have to burn your tunes to cd and then re-rip them to whatever format your prefer.

    The short answer is no.
    The long answer is maybe.
    If the songs have DRM, no.
    If they do now you can add them using MissingSync or any other method.
    If they are encoded with Apple's format TCMP will play them, although you have to search for the plugin.

    I use Missing Sync on my Mac to Sync stuff to my 700.

    You used to be able to strip the DRM off of your Mac itunes songs using jHymn (Get it..itunes, jhymn??HAHAHAHA). Anyway, jHymn does not support anything beyond itunes 5.0.....and I upgraded before I realized this....STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!

    Looks like the best "work around" is to burn CD's then rip them off of the CDs.

    Creative Media Player (came with my sound card) allows you to record "what you hear" in any bitrate or format you want.

    Another option is to try an audio converter??? Not sure if it will work, but there are plenty of free ones out there

    wm will play anything you have on iTunes that you didn't purchase through the iTunes store. You just open iTunes and drag the songs onto your Treo's sd card in any folder you want.

    Anyone had luck using PocketMusic/TCPMP or any other program that offers AAC support? Would like to find a way I can use the 700x with the thousands of songs both ripped and purchased that I have in Itunes.

    AAC is just one aspect. It is the DRM copy protection that holds most solutions back...

    Gotcha, thanks. What about using something like dbpowerconvert to convert the files to mp3. Same issues?

    Burn to cd, rip back to any format that your preferred player supports. Done!

    Bah, thats a solution, I guess. But I've already gone through that trouble for upwards of 4,000 songs. I'll pass on having to burn and re-rip everything after having ripped them once. dbpowerconvert has worked well for me in the past, when I get home tonight I'll see what it can do. Much easier to mass convert a few hundred songs than do this process.

    I bought one of the new small shuffles for ski season, so this is not a pressing issue. Certainly not worth the apparent time it would take to burn and re-rip. Just would have liked to carry one item with me and not two - and this was so I could put the songs on the phone rather than carry both. Thanks!

    Wowowowowow, wait a minute.

    As long as they have not been downloaded from itunes you should be all set with any aac capable player.

    DRM is only an issue on itunes downloads.

    Yeah I think I picked that up somewhere, so anything I rip into Itunes is OK but not if I bought it. Problem being that I have a ton of stuff that I've bought over the past year or so from Itunes that may be an issue.

    Thanks for your help.

    If you right click on the top bar you can add "File Type" You can then sort and exclude "protected aac" files which you downloaded from the iTunes store. Anything else you can just drag over into a folder on your card.

    OK I did that to see what was protected and what was not. Good trick.

    Copied one of each to the desktop to play around with. Copied both to my phone but WM would not play either. Interestingly enough they show up as MP4s. Converting the unprotected file to MP3 works just fine and it plays in WM.

    Still fooling around with it though.

    ed - tried the old free version of tcmp, doesnt support mp4 anymore. maybe the new version of coreplayer does?
