@Mark Murphy Either options can be used. If you wish to listen to the tracks in iTunes or sync them to your other iPod devices, then we recommend transferring to iTunes directly. Alternatively, you can transfer them to Mac if you wish to listen to them in another media player. Tracks transferred to your Mac can still be imported into your iTunes library at a later date if required.
