So your buddy sent you some audio files in a strange format... Or you downloaded some audio files from a website -- completely legally of course. You certainly didn't get the audio file from the Pirate Bay, because those guys are dangerous. Seriously, the whole fate of the entire free world relies on people not downloading torrents from them.

If you have the Lion OSX, it is very, very easy to do by selecting the option in your device to sync your Google account. Once you have done it, the Cloud handles the rest of the work. But, what if you aren't on Lion? The attached PDF walks you through the much more lengthy process; although, it takes longer to do, it really isn't that painful.
