Have an ipod shuffle and not a mac computer do I need to reformat my music to get it to be able to play?

I put a bunch of stuff from my music file on my pc (mostly free downloads from kazza and limewire) and cannot get it to play.

tacogirl, I Do Belize Weddings is have to download iTunes which is the software needed to download music to your iPod.

I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

Itunes will allow you to change the file type to AAC (?) which is what the IPOD plays. You should be able to do a mass convert. Check it out when you download iTunes.

Now live from beautiful downtown San Pedro.

You can also use other IPOD transfer software like Mediawidget if you don't want to use ITunes.
It's around $20.

You need iTunes to program the iPod but you don't have to buy the music through the iTunes store. Once you have d/l from limewire (frostwire is replacing limewire and is better and works the same) tell iTunes where to import files from then connect your iPod and synch. This works for an iPod Nano and should for a shuffle

I believe that with an iPod you're stuck with iTunes - no alternative. I hope yours lasts long enough to make installing iTunes worth while - they have a very short life. I know several people who've had less than a year out of theirs, and related discussion groups show that this is typical.
