Can you burn the recordings to CD, or transfer them to iTunes?

Can you transfer the audio recording to a PC and then burn it to a CD without having to convert the file type? Can the audio file be imported to iTunes so I can put it on my iPod?

This recorder does not offer a security feature. The DS-5000id offers a biometric scanner and encryption, I suggest looking at this recorder if security is of the utmost importance.
