Ipod Asking for Wireless Download when music is already loaded

I bought my daughter an Ipod. She loaded a thousand songs on it from her CDs.

But when she goes to play them, it asks her to have a wireless connection and download them.

How can she get it to stop demanding a wireless connection and download?

I found this answer somewhere. but it isn't applicable to us. So don't suggest it.

>>>FIrst, connect to wifi, and go into your iTunes app.  On the bottom of the screen you will see 3 dots for "more".  You will see a list of Music, TV Shows etc.  Select Music, then select purchased.  You will see all your music appear.  On the top of the list you can select "Recent Purchases".  Once you select that it will take you to the list of all the music you have purchases either on or off your phone.  At the top right corner, select "Download All".  

When we go to download, it says you have no purchases.  So the above doesn't apply. The music she has downloaded is her music from CDs, transferred from laptop to iphone. The music is there, but before she can play it, it has to be downloaded, even though it's already there.

When we transferred the music over, there was an option to transfer and download as well. We clicked that at the time of install.

Thanks!

1. How did she "copy" them from the CD to the computer?  What format are the music files?  MP3, AAC etc.
2. You cannot just drag and drop files from the PC to the iPhone and expect them to play.  They have to be added to iTunes on the PC and that will then transfer them to the iPhone.  How did you add the music files to the iPhone?

Agreed.

You need to rip the songs from the CD before they can be copied to iTunes and sync them to iPhone.

It is not a single step to move the songs to iPhone.

It's not an Iphone. It's an Ipod. Same thing though? I'm sorry, I originally said ipod, but later said the word iphone.

If your iPod is an iPod Touch, it is the same way to load music into it as an iPhone.
