    Is there any way to transfer your songs from a cd straight to your ipod without importing them into your itunes or hd first?

    not unless it's a MP3 CD to start with - otherwise, there has to be some sort of encoding happen since the ipod can decode a straight CD formatted file.

    and more to the point, no, since iTunes has to be there to put the songs in the ipod's database, and not just resident on the hard drive. Otherwise, PortalPlayer won't see it.
