So do you always have to rip CDs onto itunes before you can put them onto the ipod?

And sorry about the random ipod question, but I couldnt find the Official Help thread...
Here's what the critics are saying about Hanzi_G:

Hanzi_G = god damned prophet.

yes you do.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

- T.S. Eliot

yes you have to rip them to your harddrive to put them on your ipod. now if you already have files on your computer that arent already in itunes, just click and drag them into it.
