Yes. Apple has Windows versions of iTunes available for free download off their website http://www.apple.com/itunes.

Will I have to pay to access Otis on iTunes U?
No. You may freely preview and download all of the content from Otis on iTunesU.

A search is not returning many Otis tracks. Is there something wrong?
The search function currently references the main iTunes Music Store. Otis on iTunes U tracks are catalogued separately, and thus will not be found in a search.

Can I access Otis on iTunes U directly without first opening a browser?
Yes. Simply launch your iTunes application, choose iTunes U, then choose Otis College of Art and Design.

The podcast has images, but they do not appear when I play it. How can I see them?
If available, go to View Options and click on the box for Show Artwork.

I can see other people's playlist in my iTunes. Did someone hack into my computer?
No. iTunes features the ability to stream other people's music from their playlists. You may not, however, transfer these files to your computer.

Can I connect my iPod to other people's computers and download their music?
No. Your iPod can only synch with one music library at a time. So unless you would like to completely reformat your iPod to synch to another computer, it cannot be done.

Will I be able to use other mp3 players with iTunes?
Yes and no. There is moderate support in iTunes for some 3rd Party players, but they will not be able to play AAC files (including songs from the iTunes Music Store). Apple offers a full line of iPod products and accessories which will give you the best digital experience.
