    helps where the itunes tutoral couldn't

    i had trouble on the itunes tutoral and couldn't get back on it to repeat the lesson,so i got this book to help me import my cd's and encode the names for my ipod much faster.i didn't have to spend hours trying to figure out itunes since i'm new at learning about my ipod.the only drawback is i couldn't figure out how to encode cd's into my computor library with names of cd tracks. i could only get the name of the cd or artist on it.i'm not computor literate yet.
