    Is there a way to take songs from iTunes and put them on a non-apple iPod? Or is there a way to take a song from iTunes and put it on my computer, but not in iTunes, so I can download it onto my ipod, that is not Apple?

    I hope this makes sense ~

    yes

    under preferances and general you should see a button to choose import options.

    click that and change the import format to be MP3

    save the settings and exit the preferances.

    Now you can select the songs you want in itunes and then to to the advanced menubar and select Create MP3 version of selected songs

    you will then have an MP3 version of the song that would work on any portable music player.

    ...unless it's music you bought from Apple? Isn't it protected?

    yes, this will convert purchased iTunes music into MP3 format without the DRM protection.

    I know this may be picking at nits, but iPod® is a registered trademark of the Apple Inc. While the marketing department might be pleased that the name "iPod" is synonymous with digital music players like Xerox® is to photocopies and Kleenex® is to tissue, the legal department may have issues with it!
