ipod & itunes

Help please - my grandchildren have their brand new ipods. I've downloaded itunes.
How do I copy music files on the computer to the ipod?
How do I copy CD's they have to the ipod?

When I bought a cheapo mp3 player for someone, all I did was to use Explorer, select the files and then copy. Can I do that or do I have to use itunes.

What does itunes mean by "sync".

It does take a bit of getting used to but once you've done it a couple of times it's really straightforward "syncing" is appples way of saying "copy my selected music from the PC to the Ipod". The best way I found to learn the procedure was to watch the tutorial videos on the apple help site click here
you can also find a video to help you "rip" cd's onto your PC for transfering to the Ipod ...alB
