Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
As long as the files you download through Linewire are in a format supported by iTunes, you may be able to play them on your iPod. The major exceptions to this however, are if the files you download are copy-protected or contain a digital rights management (DRM) identification tag. If the files you download are copy-protected and/or contain a DRM tag, you may only be able to play those songs using the media player software recommended or provided by Linewire itself.
I would strongly suggest contacting Linewire technical support before attempting any kind of file transfer, as Linewire would have the most accurate information regarding whether or not the files they provide have either of these protections.
Additionally, remember that iTunes is only able to support certain file types. Those file types are MP3, MP3 VBR, AAC, Protected AAC, Audible 2/3/4, Apple Lossless and AIFF audio formats; JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, PSD (Mac only), and PNG image formats; H.264 and MPEG-4 video formats.
Hope this helps you out.
