COPYING music from iTunes to USB Device?
My new Jeep came with a stereo with a built in hard drive and USB port. Unfortunately music cannot be played directly from the USB port and music be copied directly to the hard drive.
As such I am wondering if it's possible to copy of selection of music from iTunes to an attached USB device/drive on a Mac. I'm thinking that I am going to have to go through Finder and copy it that way but I'm not sure.

Most likely it will play music in MP3 format. To locate MP3 files on your computer: In the finder, Command-F, type .MP3 in the search field, click on "File Name" instead of "Contents". You can either copy individual files or whole folders in the Finder; quite likely that a player will understand that. And I'd try if the same thing works with a USB memory stick.
And many CD players will play .mp3 files as well; you can create them directly from iTunes but only with music in .mp3 format. You can convert music to mp3 format in iTunes, but ask here if you are not sure how to do that.

I don't have a memory stick on me, but as far as I can remember you can't drag from iTunes to an external memory source, and also unfortunately there is no way to view playlists in Finder, as they are stored under the artist name.
EDIT: According to the post above mine, you can. My mistake.
I'm guessing you know how to get to your iTunes music in Finder? If not,
User > Music > iTunes > iTunes Music.
Or, you can right click on a song in iTunes and click "Show in Finder".
