No. Here's why. The iPod has a files mode which you can place music files into, but such will not play. This is by design. To get music into the iPod (the Apple way) you import such into iTunes and have it convert them and put them into the iPod.
I use Itunes on my computer to play my music. My main music folder is called "my music". If I am attaching a mini ipod to my pc computer, will it transfer the music even though the music does not exist in the itunes music library folder. Thanks for any help.
