iTunes Store questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
All this DRM talk by Steve Jobs has me wondering...
Our family has 4 iPods, 3 of which are synched with our personal laptop, but mine is synched with my work laptop. (I'm pretty sure an iPod can only connect to one PC, right?)
My questions are:
1) If I purchase songs from the iTunes store on our personal laptop, will I be able to copy the songs over to my work laptop (via a USB memory stick) so I can put the songs on my iPod?
2) Will I be able to burn a CD of those songs? (Seems legal since I'm paying for the songs.)

Thanks for the help,
Rob

Edit: OK, I see from the iTunes store that I will be able to burn a CD of the songs I buy. But I'm still not sure about my first question.

I think I am right about this...............

1. You can authorize up to 5 machines to play your purchased music.
2. You can transfer purchased music from you iPod to any one of these 5 machines.
3. You cannot synch your iPod with more than one machine at a time.

I do not if you can transfer NON purchased music. I have really tried to do that yet.

I am not for sure about the USB key.

All of that is correct- but make sure the other machines you want to authorize can connect to the itunes store, or else you will not be able to authorize it. You work machine may not be able to. Also, it's important to not that you can authorize up to 5 machines at a time. You can unauthorize a machine to authorize another at anytime, as long as you can connect to the itunes store.

Yes, you can burn CD's from the music you buy. I used to buy tracks, burn them to CD, and then rip them from the same CD as MP3's so I caould do with them as I please.

As for non-purchased music, you normally cannot transfer it from your Ipod to other machines, but there is software available that allows you to do this.
