ipod & itunes

I used to have a samsung mp3 player and am considering an ipod. My samsung accepted any music I could upload. Am I limited to getting my music from Itunes or can I upload music I've already got on my pc from my own collection of cd's and other music sites and musician friends?

I have yet to get anything from iTunes. I have too many CDs.

as long as they're in a format iPods can play

MP3 format is okay. WMA cannot, but iTunes can convert unprotected WMAs (which means no DRM) into mp3 or aac. Just beware that conversion from wma or ripping from an audio cd usually goes to aac as the default format unless you change preferences in iTunes. I don't remember off the top of my head...but you do go into the edit menu, then preferences, then I think you go to the advanced tab, then importing, then change your preference to mp3 and choose your bitrate.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
