IPod Classic and Winamp

I won at the company party an IPod classic when I tried to connected to my computer ITunes would not recognized it because I am on Windows 2000, I read in the net about winamp, would this program be able to load all my ITunes library into the new Ipod classic? Their format is M4P would WINAMP convert it into mp3 or would it play the native ITunes format? Do they work seamlessly together or do they crash or interfere with one another?


Thank you so much for your help!

Winamp doesn't natively support Apple's protected format, however there is a hacked together plugin here:

Otherwise, Winamp should work fine with your iPod.

Thanks! If I do not want to use the hacked version of the plugin, would Winamp automatically convert them to MP3?

No, Winamp cannot do anything with files it doesn't understand. Winamp will just ignore all m4p files.

Hello again! If I convert with another program the M4P files to MP3 could I use them on my IPod? Do I still need WinAmp to input the librarry on my IPod classic?

If you do convert the files to MP3 be aware that there will be some quality loss depending on the quality you choose for the MP3 file. Once they are MP3 files, they will be treated as MP3 files so you can use whatever software you want to do whatever you want with them.

As for sticking files onto an iPod, I have no clue how to do it nor what software fully supports one, other than iTunes.

I prefer to stick with proven mass storage devices that work simply on any modern operating system.
