Most people are probably like me and love nothing more than to relax, put on a pair of headphones and listen to your favorite music.
And if you own an ipod, that music actually sounds pretty good.
But being a “closed loop” Apple has made it difficult to listen to the music you want without having to pay for each and every song on iTunes. I mean at a dollar plus per pop, it can get expensive fast.
And what about all of those old CD’s you have that you have already paid for. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to copy them and load them up onto your iPod?
Now you can! Just follow my quick tutorial below and you’ll be listening to those old classics in no time.
Today I am going to teach you how to convert DVDs to itunes format so that you can play them on your ipod.
