^ AFAIK, no. All songs that you want to add to your iPod must go through iTunes.

Well, yes and no.

It IS possible to add them directly in two ways. 1) Open iTunes, have your iPod connected, and drag the song from your computer and drop it directly into the iPod, without adding it to your iTunes first. 2) view hidden folders on your computer, go to your iPod's folder, hunt around til you find mp3s, and copy them in.

The problem with that comes when you want to remove the songs from your iPod. They will show in your iPod list when connected to iTunes, where you would delete them ... but some part of it stays, because your iPod will think the files are still there. Going through your iPod itself (while not connected to iTunes) will still display them, like they can be played. The only way to truly remove them is to do a complete factory refresh/reset on your iPod. And that's a pain in the butt.

So yes, it can be done ... but not much point to it. You'd have the song on your pod, but not in your Tunes library. I don't see the point.

Re: iTunes on the computer

Ok.. my computer guy salvaged the songs and put them into a folder on my netbook that I can I can access. I have another desktop, with iTunes but it wasn't the source computer. How do I transfer these songs into my iTunes database that I now want to be my source computer for all future syncing?
