I usually get songs for my iPod from YouTube and convert them to MP3s with various converter websites. I drag them into iTunes and I can sync them to my iPod without paying. But a few days ago I tried to put a song in iTunes and it didn't work. A notice pooped up that said: "file:///C:/Users/Nancy/Downloads/etc..." does not seem to be a valid Podcast URL. Please check that you have entered the correct URL and try again. Does this mean that iTunes found a way to block people from getting music outside of it? If so... what a drag. I absolutely refuse to pay $1.29 for a song that I'll outgrow in two weeks!
