I just started playing around with iTunes and I have to say I think it's great. I didn't think that I would like it so thats why it took me so long to play around with it. The streaming radio stations are great. I can't beleive the quality. Thumbs up to iTunes.

PS: I'm assuming that there isnt a hidden fee for listening to those stations. I don't remember putting my credit card info in anywhere so they are free right?

No hidden fees.

Some of the stations at live365 will beg for money because they have too many listeners taking up bandwith, but if you sign up with them then you can listen to the high-quality streams anytime. Being the cheap person that I am, I just listen to the free streams.

You'll need to go to in iTunes, Prefrences, Advanced, and uncheck "Keep iTunes Music folder organized". You might need to reimport your files into iTunes, because I don't think you can reverse what happened.

It's either not going to be played by iTunes unless you double click it, if you uncheck the check mark. And iTunes won't transfer the song to your iPod, I think.
