Re: itunes for download

Yes, but you need the software. For copying music off of an iPod, there are 2 software programs that I've used. One is called 'Tune Tools' and the other is called 'Podmaxx'. You can buy them at Best Buy or Circuit City for around $30. I'm not aware of any specific software to transfer pictures, but I'm sure there's some out there. The pictures on an iPod are not proprietery as far as I know, so you should be able to access them from your 'my computer' folder while your iPod is connected.

When i plug in my 120gb classic it shows it as a hard drive with nothing on it. It does not show it as an ipod

This is a setting in Itunes. Look for a check box in itunes that says something like "use ipod in hard drive mode." Simply uncheck this box and be on your way.

Can you use itunes without downloading it? If not, how can you get pictures on your ipod without itunes?

You do need to download and install Quicktime and iTunes to use your iPod with your computer. No way around that -- it's one of the key differences between iPods and other mp3 players. Apple locks you in to their software that way.

I can use the songs that i upload from winamp on my Ipod

Best way to transfer music on the ipod is through iTunes. Apple uses its own mechanism to copy music, pictures and videos on the device and traditional methods such as copy/paste and transfer from windows media player, winamp, etc do not work.

How to download songs to an mp3 player from itunes

MP3 players cant be used with itunes, Itunes is only for Ipods and such.
Just see where you download the actual songs. and put them in a folder and copy the songs into your MP3 player.

Or you can also try right clicking on the song in itunes and then copying and pasting it in the MP3 player

I can't seem to download songs onto my mp4 player

Your Coby player is not compatible with iTunes. What you will have to do is to download the songs from iTunes, and, provided the songs do NOT have copy protection on them (possibly unlikely), you will need to download a free program like Media Monkey to convert the songs to Mp3 format. Once the songs are converted to mp3 format, you can use either Media Monkey or Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to your mp3 player.

Wanna copy music to an ipod classic without using itunes

Other options are RealPlayer (has a iPod plug-in), and a relatively new program which appears promising called Songbird. Both of these two programs are popular for transferring music to iPods without the use of Apple iTunes.

How to convert music from itunes to your mp3 player??

You cannot use Itunes for anything except an Ipod device. And any files you get from the Itunes or Rhapsody for example are copy protected and require specific software to copy to an MP3 player.

If your songs are in MP3 format (not downloaded from Itunes or another subscription site) then you can set your Sansa to "MSC" mode which makes it act like a flash drive. Then you can just drag files to the "MUSIC" folder on the sansa.

If this is on an Apple computer things are different - if you are let us know.
