the contents of your iTunes library onto the DVD. You probably cannot do it from within iTunes but if you export the library out as AAC, AIFF or MP3 then once it is burned onto the DVD is should be playable.
The other alternative is to go to the local Mac store and ask them how to do it.

Isn't it usual to have the iPod sync with iTunes?
So, would it be too much to expect that the contents of the iPod also existed, as originals, within iTunes?
If that is the case, wouldn't one just export and then burn them.

It's late so I'll be back tomorrow.
