Am new to the world of mp3's, etc. ... have never owned an iPod or similar device. Would like to transfer some of my music library (CDs) to my phone but not sure what tools (apps) I need nor exactly how to go about it. I've heard about apps like iTunes, doubleTwist, etc. but don't really understand what they do. I'm not planning on buying music (Apple store, etc.) and doubt I'd be interested in many of the more esoteric features (categorizing my tunes, etc.) ... I just need to have several hours of music for an upcoming trip. Based on my initial research I need to "rip" my CDs, then transfer those files to my phone. Am on Windows XP. Do I use software like iTunes (or doubleTwist) to "rip" the CDs? And if iTunes doesn't handle the "ripping" why is it needed? Are there better choices than iTunes, etc.? I mentioned it because its one of only a couple I've heard of. I'd appreciate any guidance or software recommendations on this. Thanks.
