For more information, see section 4.2 in the Rockbox manual.
Yet another possibility is to convert the i Tunes DB to a the Rockbox database format, see Convert i Tunes DB to Rockbox database for more information.
There are two types of music files available in the i Tunes store: 128kbps MP3 and 256 kbps AAC.
The first variety are encrypted with digital rights management (DRM) and are not compatible with Rockbox on principle.
Rockbox comes with no guarantees, but we have never heard of a case of a user permanently damaging their i Pod by installing third-party software such as i Pod Linux or Rockbox.i Tunes stores your music in the i Pod_Control/Music folder on your i Pod.This folder has the "hidden" attribute set, so you need to enable the "View all files" option in Rockbox to show this folder in the file browser.The album/artist/title information is stored in a database file called itunesdb on your i Pod.Rockbox does not read the information from this file.
However, i Tunes obfuscates the filenames of your music by giving them names such as DLER.m4a in folders with names like F03.
