Hello everyone. I haven't really used iTunes very much, as all i do is rip my cd's onto it so i can listen to my music collection whenever i am on the go. With the release of the new ipod video and having the capability of playing games, i am interested in using the itunes store and purchasing a new ipod. I just have a few questions about this though. Ive been reading and doing some serious googling and have came across that i have to have a credit card to make an account. I always thought that to use the iTunes store you just had to buy one of those iTunes cards (I've seen them valued at $25 and $50) can i not just buy one of these 'cards' and then enter some type of activation code thats on the back of the card and use it to buy music from the store?? And each time i buy a video/game it will deduct money from the iTunes card?? Thanks very much in advance. EDIT: This is no longer my question. See reply number 8 for more detail.
