Music Cannot be Added to Ipod

I can import music from a CD into iTunes on my Win XP machine, but when I try to add it to my 30GB iPod by dragging songs to the iPod in the iTunes interface it tells me that the title was not transferred to the iPod "because they cannot be played on this iPod."

I have updated the iTunes app to the lastest version and downloaded the latest iPod updater and run it to get the iPod up to the most current version, but this didn't help.

I see that I can browse the iPod in windows explorer and see the hidden directory structure there, but I don't have a clue as to where I would manually copy the music files to there, or if they would be able to be played if they were moved in this fashion.

The music can be played in iTunes on the PC, and I have tried importing the music from the CD in various formats, but this doesn't seem to help. I have tried this with two different music CDs; maybe there is some kind of copy restriction on them but it doesn't make sense as I can play them on the PC.

Can your iPod have regular music files moved to it?  IE:  Music not on a CD?

If not, then perhaps your iPod just needs to be reformatted.

Can you import the CD into iTunes?  Or are you just playing the CD through iTunes?  And there are several CDs out there that allow you to play the music on your computer, but not copy it.  Try another music CD... see what happens.  Try another program, see if you can rip it with MusicMatch or something like that, that'll answer the copyright problem.

Also, are you just dragging CD tracks to your iPod?  That is the way you made it sound... you actually have to copy them from the CD into your iTunes so you can play the songs w/o the CD in.. then you can drag them to your iPod.  What format do you have your iTunes working in?  AAC or MP3?  You should have it in AAC.
