How do I copy my itunes songs onto an SD card so that I can then listen to those songs on my DSi?

You need to convert those itunes songs to ACC format to be able to listen to them on your DSI. It's pretty easy to do on itunes, just right-click on a song and select the "convert to ACC format" option; you can't do this with a full album however, just with single songs. Have fun with the system; I'm still waiting on mine to be delivered.

On itunes, I converted the songs to ACC format -- but now that I've done that, how do I save them on an SD card? There is of course a button to click to burn a disc, but I don't see anything for saving on an SD card. Any advice? Thanks!

If you're on a PC, you can just use explorer view and navigate to the directory (probably in the My Music>>>Itunes Music folder) and then copy the AAC files and paste to the SD card. Or just drag and drop the files to the card. If you're on a Mac, I've got no idea ;)

On my PC, I checked the directories and couldn't find my iTunes songs anywhere other than on iTunes. And on iTunes I don't see a way to save the ACC songs on an SD card. Am I missing something? Is there way to do this thru iTunes? Any other advice? Thank you!

Mario Fan,

1. load iTunes
B. Right click the file you want to add on
C. you should see "Where" Towards the bottom

1. Use the "open folder to view files" feature after inserting the memory card in your computer. The box should pop up with this option. If not, go into My Computer and double click the memory card icon.
2. With this folder open, minimize the window to the taskbar.
3. In iTunes, right click a song and choose "convert to AAC format." Note: if the track is protected, it will not convert to the right format.
4. After the track is converted, just right click, and "Copy."
5. Open the minimized folder from earlier, right click, and "Paste."
That should do it! That's what's been working for me, anyway. :)
