ooh, they're mean.....

uhm, I'm not sure what you're having difficulty doing exactly. Can iTunes not detect your CD? Is it taking forever? Is it not importing the CD correctly? Does itunes not show your ipod when its plugged in?

I'd stick with itunes. Other stuff isn't all that great to try, when you've already got itunes on your computer.

Try ripping the songs from the CD's into a MP3 music format. If you can see the CD on itunes, then go up to edit>preferences. Click on the advanced tab, click on importing, then import using MP3 encoder, and then with whatever quality you feel like.

You might want to update your itunes program too. Its probably outdated, and if you've got a newer ipod... then you'll probably have to have it.

There is a very nice standalone program out there called yamipod, I have been using it for about a year now and have had no problems with it.

As always, back up everything before you use it just to be safe.
