No, it is not possible to download files from an iPod into the jukebox. The way an iPod's inner workings are set up, you cannot transfer the song files directly from the iPod into the Jukebox. The song files must be saved on an SD card/DVD/data CD (not music CD) or some other portable drive in order to get them into the Jukebox. It is the same concept that one cannot simply plug an iPod into a computer and download songs into that computer.
Also when music has been copied to the MMI Jukebox, this music can not be exported from the Jukebox to an external media device.
Additionally, if your vehicle is equipped with AMI and the iPod cable, simply plug in the iPod using the iPod cable to have have full access to your iPod's music (while the iPod is plugged in). Song titles, playlists, and such will all show up in the MMI screen.

Using the iPod AMI cable, connect your device to the cable and connect the other end to the AMI interface in the glovebox or center console (Q7).

Store-bought CDs or CDs that are burned using a computer as "music" or "audio" CDs cannot be imported to the jukebox. They are encoded to the CD in such a way that they are copyright protected, so the MMI is reading them as something not compatible to import.
However, songs can be loaded to your computer (using a program such as iTunes) and then converted to compatible files (e.g., mp3 files). These files can be saved as data onto another media source (e.g., an SD card, USB stick (if you have a USB connector) or another CD) and imported to the jukebox. The important thing to remember is that you must use file formats compatible with your vehicle's entertainment system.
