Getting Music in iTunes

  your hard drive for any compatible files and,
  with your permission, add them to your
  Music Library.
• You can load music from any CD you own
• You can buy music from the iTunes Store
Choosing an Encoder
iTunes gives you several
options for encoding your
music. For most people,
using the default AAC
encoder will give you the
best balance of audio
quality and file size.
Audiophiles may choose
to encode their music at
higher quality. If you use
the default encoder, you
don’t need to change
these settings.
