How to transfer your CD albums onto iTunes
So if you've decided to get with the times and transfer your CD albums to iTunes, and you're wondering where to start, this should help -
• Download iTunes onto your computer. Yes, it's free, and yes, iTunes works great on both PCs and Macs.
• Transfer your CD albums into iTunes. Yes, it's perfectly legal to do that for your own personal use, and yes, it's time-consuming, but it's easy to do. Put the CD in the drive, follow the instructions in iTunes, and there you go.
• Get an iPod. Once your music is in iTunes, all you gotta do is to plug in your new iPod, with a USB cable, and it will copy everything over to it. Then you can listen to your music while you're working out, or driving your car, or (dang, I'm sounding like a commercial!).
And that's it. I did this years ago, and since then when I purchase an album, I just buy it from iTunes. There really is no need for a plastic disc, and packaging, and all of that. The files on a CD are digital files, anyway, so they're exactly the same.
