When I'm not using my chainsaw, I use iTunes [edit: on my PC, running XP Home] with my iPod mini. If I get some USB cheapo MP3 player for my kids, or a nice Rio or Sony or whatever, will iTunes recognize it, and can I download playlists to it? Thanks!

well, it depends on the mp3 player. some mp3 players come with their own itunes wanna be program (like musicmatch or some other crap-tastic program you don't want to use), and require that program to xfer files onto it.
if the hd is one that is recognised as a external drive, then its just drag and drop, which i believe you can do straight from itunes.
but like abbid said, only ipod will play .aac or itunes purchased files. if you want to play those, you'll need to convert them to mp3 and/or strip the drm off the file.
iTunes confuses you... it's the simpliest music program to date. If you are saving your files as MP3s then you can use any player with iTunes. Music purchased from the iTunes Music Store are AAC files (which only play on the iPod) due to copyright protection.

you set what format it encodes to in the preferences, and i believe it defaults to mp3.
and songs purchased from iTMS are AAC encoded (like was mentioned before), but can have one of the following extensions: m4p, m4a, m4b.
m4p and m4b are "locked" files, and m4a is just a regular media file, like mp3, wav, etc.
these files as is, will only play on an ipod. to play these files on a different kind of mp3 player, you have to strip any drm from the file, and convert it to mp3.
