Question about Apple iPod shuffle MP3 Player

Copying music from CD to PC

I have copied some CDs to my PC in anticipation of copying them to my iPod Shuffle. However, I have enconded at the maximum kbps, which is about 400 kbps. This means that about 100 songs take up 2.2 GB. The ipod Shuffle has a capacity of 1GB which at 128 kbps will take 240 songs. Will I have to re copy my music from CD to PC at the lower kbps, or can I choose to copy to my Shuffle at a lower kbps?

If you use the lower 128kbps, this will allow more files to be stored and the loss of quality will not be noticed. If your ipod accepts wma, the file is about the same size per tack but the quality is better than mp3

How to add new mp3 songs

Install iTunes
Before you connect your iPod shuffle to your Mac or PC computer or use it, you must install the latest iTunes software.
2. Connect and Set Up your iPod shuffle Charge your battery by connecting it to an Apple iPod Power Adapter or connect your iPod to a high-power USB port —one that's located directly on your computer—to ensure that your computer charges your iPod battery. (If your computer doesn't seem to recognize your connected iPod , wait about 30 minutes to allow the iPod battery to charge before going further.)
3. Fill your iPod shuffle and iTunes with Music Once you finish the set up, iTunes will open. It will then either:
  • Automatically start filling your iPod with music from your iTunes library (if you set iTunes to automatically update your iPod)
OR
  • Allow you to pick and choose what music, audiobooks, and podcasts to add, if you opted to manually manage music on your iPod.
To manually add content, simply drag any file from your iTunes library or playlist to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list. If you're using iTunes for the very first time, you'll need to add some music to iTunes first, such as songs from your own CDs or music already on your hard drive.
4. Disconnect your iPod shuffle Once you've got your music, audiobooks, and other files on your iPod, you're ready to enjoy it.
  • If you see an “OK to Disconnect” message on your iPod, simply disconnect it from your computer.
  • If you see a “Do Not Disconnect” message, click the eject icon that appears next to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list and then disconnect your iPod from your computer when you see the “OK to Disconnect” message.
  • Disconnecting my iPod shuffle
5. Play your iPod shuffle Now you’re ready to enjoy your iPod.

Music downloaded??

Go to the following website to get a copy of the manual:

Also, iPods work with iTunes, so be sure you use that when copying music from the computer to the Shuffle.

Good luck.

Am I doing this wrong?

Yes, for any Apple product, media has to be synced with iTunes. For Sansa you can just transfer it with your Windows Explorer, but not for iPod. Download iTunes, install, connect your iPod. The driver will be installed automatically. Also eject from iTunes and not from Windows.

10 COPYING PROCEDURE
About copying
 Copying can be performed easily from the set’s CD unit onto the CD-R unit.
 There are two copying speeds (normal and high) and four copying modes.
• The mode switches as described below each time the normal speed copying button (NORMAL) or the high speed copying
button (HIGH) is pressed.
• The recording level is automatically set to the default value (0.0 dB).
• The repeat and random play modes are canceled when the copy mode is set.
• During normal speed copying you can listen to the sound as you copy.
• During high speed copying no sound is produced.
• No signals are output from the digital outputs during high speed copying.
• During copying, buttons other than the CD or CD-R stop buttons do not function.
• When CD TEXT compatible CDs are copied, the disc names and track names are also copied.
 When copying, switch the relay mode to the normal or dual mode. Copying is not possible in the relay or mix mode.
 For optimum recording, make sure there are no fingerprints, scratches or dust on the signal surface of the source side CD or
the CD-R/RW.
 The auto track function is always activated in the copying mode. It is not possible to assign track numbers manually.
Disc dubbing: In this mode, entire CDs can be copied onto CD-R/RW.
(“All Tr Dubb” is displayed.)
Make CD: In this mode, entire CDs can be copied onto CD-R/RW then finalized automatically.

Using dvd drive makes makes sounds

There is nothing wrong with your laptop. If you are copying a cd and trying to play music at the same time, you are pushing the processor power of your laptop or low on memory. When copying a cd it should rip it without sound to your hardrive, so i assume that your are playing music from your hardrive as well as ripping and this model of laptop i think comes standard with a 1.3ghz processor with 512mb of memory, which can easily be drained when ripping or burning.
