Making your iTunes the default player for you media files does not necessarily mean thet they will play on your iPod. They still need to be in the proper format for the iPod.
To change the default player for your media files:
1) right click the media file you wish to play.
2) select open with.
3) select browse and navigate to your iTunes player program.
4) select the exicutable file that starts your iTunes program.
5) Check the box that says "use this as my default program for this type file.
6) select apply.
The iTunes program will now be the default program for thatr type file.
You may need to do this for each file type you wish to use iTunes for.
If you have other concerns in this matter please reply here in this thread.

Well you dont actually download the media to the iTunes program itself. The program is what will play them after you enter it as the default player for that type of file.
What you actually do is change the program that your computer sends the media file with that extention to to be played. ie: ITunes instead of WMP
If the iTunes program is what the iPod uses as its file transfer interface with your computer, then yes, it should be able to load the media files to your iPod. Again, this does not necessarily mean that they are going to play properly on the iPod. There are many diffrent codecs in use today. I'm sure that the iPod does not support them all.
Thank you for accepting. And the nice compliments.
Please let me know if you continue to have problems with this.

You may be running into good ole DRM. The media you are trying to copy may have copy protection that will not allow you to copy it to your hard drive.
May I ask the titles and distributors of what you are trying to copy? I can then tell you if they allow copying their content or not.
