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 zamzar.com (I don't know how to make links) then you basically go through the steps on zamzar.com 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.
