I have a Chrysler Town & Country which has a 20-gigabyte HDD in it.  First, I would like to know if I can transfer my entire iPod library to this HDD.  Second, when I copy a new CD to the system, I do not get song listings, only Track 1, Track 2, etc.  In the manual it says "The radio will recognize only files with the *.MP3 extension as MP3 files."  I don't know if this means anything or not.  Thanks in advance

If you are copying a new CD to the hard disk you are copying WAV files and not MP3 files.  MP3 files are the ones you want.

To do this on your own home computer you must rip your music CDs to MP3 files.  Then burn the MP3 files to a CD and copy those to your Town & Country.

There are a large number of MP3 rippers and burners available.  Many of them are free.

Thanks for your response.  I did burn the CD to my iTunes library and then tried to copy it to a flash drive.  When I inserted this in the car HDD it told me it could not recognize the flash drive.  So, from your comment, am I correct in assuming that putting it on iTunes and then copying to flash drive still wouldn't make them MP3 files?  If not, I will try to find the MP3 ripper or burner.  What about my first question regard my iTunes library.  Is it still the same case?  My iTunes library is all WAV files and not MP3.  Could I take my entire iTunes library and change it into MP3 files?  How do I find out if they are MP3 files?

I would say so.  Depends on what you've done with them in iTunes.  iTunes supports various formats.  You may have put them into AAC format which is what iTunes usually supports.

There are options in iTunes to make files into MP3s but get yourself a proper ripper/converter rather than letting iTunes do it.

If you've got wav files then they can easily be converted into MP3 files.

I suggest you look at the free version of Media Monkey http://www.mediamonkey.com/  That will convert your music CDs to MP3 files; fill in the tags and do the renaming of the files for you.

Play with that first and see what you can do.
