    From the iTunes Music Store? No, not directly. You'd have to remove the DRM somehow first.

    Yea the way i know will work is when pluggin in your mp3 player it should pop up as a drive on your desktop if you use OS X or if you use Windows then it will show up in My Computer or Windows Explorer. Within iTunes you select the music you like and drag and drop it on the drive, that should do it.

    Edit: Oh i didn't realize the fact that you bought it from iTMS if thats the case in addition to what the poster above me said, you also would need to convert it from .aac to an .mp3, this is Apples way of thanking you for using the iTMS but disciplining you for not buying an iPod.

    This will not work with purchased music.
    Only way without hacks (which can't be discussed here) is to burn a CD with the tracks then rip it back into iTunes as an MP3. Purchased music is in Protected AAC which only iPod supports.

    Thanks for the heads up, it's interesting that you have to use an illegal hack to actually listen to the music YOU bought the way YOU want.

    yes but when you buy the music you agree to the terms and conditions of the DRM placed onto said music. its a contract really. if you make a point to know what you are buying and the limitations of that music it wouldnt be a problem
