Hello, Eric!

What happens when you put a cd into your computer? (There's a slot on
the right side where you can insert it). If your Macbook works like my
Macbook, iTunes will open automatically and then ask you if it should
read in the cd. If you answer by clicking the 'YES' button (i.e. you
put the cursor on it by using the touchpad or a mouse and then click
on the button where you usually put your index finger), it will start
automatically reading in your cd and converting it into the format you
need to play songs on an ipod. That would be step one.

Step two is to press the button with the little upward triangle and a
line under it to eject your cd. (The button is on your keyboard this
time). You sometimes have to press it twice or three times. The cd
will be ejected on the right side again.

Then enter a blank cd into the slot where you only just retrieved your
cd. If any windows open, ignore and close them, then go back to
iTunes. You need to make a new playlist with all the songs you only
just read in. To do this, you need to press CMD+N. (CMD is the former
'Apple' button left of your space bar). Name your new playlist (or
don't, it doens't matter...), then scroll up to the first word in the
menu which should be 'music'. Find all the music you need on the CD,
mark it, then drag it to your new playlist on the left. This was the
most difficult part.

The only thing you still need to do now is to burn the cd by pressing
the 'burn' (or whatever it is in English) button on the lower right of
the iTunes window. Choose any of the formats (audio, mp3, data) - I'm
sure the iPod-owners know how to convert the cd then.

If you have any questions left, best send an email to me (Xxxxxxxxx@xxxxx.xx
). I'll be here for another 2 hours, then go dancing (what else... ;-)).

Hope this helps!

Good luck,
Christina
