You can browse multiple file sharing networks, including the popular Gnutella network, using iMesh. The peer-to-peer downloading program lets users download both free tracks from other users and some paid songs from music studios. Transfer your iMesh music library into your iTunes library to put your files onto your iPod and enjoy your music collection anywhere you want.

Find your iMesh music library by clicking "Settings" at the top of the iMesh software and choosing "Preferences." In the resulting window, press "Library & Downloads." The location of your iMesh music folder is listed under "Save my iMesh downloads in:."
Quit the iMesh software.
Double-click "My Computer" on your Windows desktop or select it from within your Windows Start menu. Navigate to your iMesh music folder.
Open the iTunes music software. Drag and drop the iMesh music folder into the iTunes window. The software will import all of your iMesh tracks. Alternatively, click "File" at the top of iTunes and select "Add to Library." In the resulting window, navigate to your iMesh folder, click it and push "Choose."
Connect your iPod to your computer using its included USB syncing cable. The iPod will automatically sync with iTunes, transferring the files you just imported into iTunes onto the music player. Press the "Eject" icon next to the iPod's icon in iTunes once the syncing process is complete.
Tips and warnings
- Some of the premium files available on the iMesh file sharing network are available as digital rights management (DRM) protected Windows Media files. Such files can't be directly imported into iTunes--even though you paid for and acquired the files legally--and thus can't be transferred onto your iPod. The iMesh support team suggests getting around this limitation by burning an audio CD with the tracks. Insert a CD into your computer while iMesh is running. Choose the WMA files in question and press "Burn" to add them to the CD, then click "Start" to finalise the disk. After burning is complete, open iTunes and press "Import" to transfer the burnt CD's tracks into iTunes. This removes the DRM protection and allows iTunes to import the tracks.
