                                        End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
                                         a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
                                           latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
                                            the last disk(s) of this archive.

I resent update. i also took pictures of what i do and saved to desktop. if this tad bit helps.

chmod +x /tmp/iTunesSetup.exe; wine /tmp/iTunesSetup.exe

MAY make it work. iTunes (and crappy iPods) can be a pain in Linux as they are geared around people having Mac or Windows OS.

Basically unless you are running version 8 or 8.2 (which I'm sure would get updated), it's not going to work and I suggest you look at alternatives to get data onto your device.

What can i use that will let me play the music or transfer it to another comparably program. Still new to system. why to poor to pay for lesson due to my senior year of high school. can you help.

Rhythmbox, Amarok and Banshee can. You can also install ifuse and treat it as a hard drive.
