    I WOULD make an instructable, but I've never done it before, and I accidentally reloaded this page twice after I had almost finished, well, a friggin ESSAY on how to do the thing described in the comment above, and,... just,... watch a how-to on youtube. :/


    I tried it but when i insert the SD card into the DSI it says Couldent play track

    i feel stupid for not thinking of this


    Well, if you have a CD, if I remember right, you can download music from iTunes onto the CD. Then once you get the files onto the CD. You can upload the files from there onto your computer. Save the files from the CD to your hard drive. Then go to (I don't know how to make links) then you basically go through the steps on to convert to an AAC file. Then you can save it on your SD card and it should work. I haven't been able to try this due to the fact that the computer with and SD card reader crashes almost constantly.

     This doesnt work anymore
    apple had an update to iTunes

    where is the misc file??!?

    Thanks so much. i just got a dsi for Christmas and since i have not seen my nerd friend that is like the smartest kid when comes to computers, he could not help me. Thanks again

    He could be using bootcamp... but I doubt it.

    "Show In Windows Explorer" says Windows to me? L

    And bootcamp doesn't allow screen-capture? L

    There is no prnt scrn key... it's a macbook.....
