Music on an audio CD can be copied into a music folder on your computer. When you use the Apple iTunes software to copy the audio songs onto your computer, those files will be saved in the iTunes folder. These songs can then be transferred from the iTunes library to any iPod that you own. Performing these actions will give you the ability to listen to music located on several different CDs all at the same time.
Add CD music to iTunes
Put the music CD into the computer's CD drive.
Click on the CD name found under "Devices." The music on the CD will appear in the middle of iTunes and two buttons will appear at the bottom of the program.
Click the "Import Settings" button. A window will open iTunes.
Choose an audio format located inside the "Import Using" drop box. Any of the formats located inside the drop box will play on your iPod. Therefore, the format you select will be based on your preference. Click "OK" after you've made your selection.
Click on the "Import CD" button found at the bottom of iTunes. The CD music will be added to iTunes.
Add CD music to iPod
Connect your iPod to your computer, using the device's USB cable to do so.
Click "Music" underneath the "Library" category in the left iTunes panel. All of the iTunes music, including the CD songs added in the previous section, will be listed inside of the center window of iTunes.
Select the CD music listed in the center of iTunes by clicking on those songs.
Drag the songs to the iPod which, like the CD, is listed under "Devices." The CD music will be added to the iPod.
