One of the biggest disadvantages if iTunes is that the music that you purchase has DRM protection built into them. This protection makes it impossible to play these purchased music files on other music devices such as Zune, PSP, mobile phone, mp3 or MP4 players.
There are many offers, both in stores and on the Internet, for low-priced MP4 players, mobiles, iPods or iPhones. How disappointing though, when the recipients of the gifts cannot enjoy all the music, audio books due to DRM copy protection or because the mobile device cannot play back the file format. Fortunately, there at least threee ways to get around this annoying restriction.
Method #1: Use the Hymn Project to crack the DRM control.
The purpose of the Hymn Project is to allow users to exercise theis fair-use rights under copyright law. The various software provided by the Hymn Project allows users to free their iTunes Music Store purchases (protected AAC / .m4p) from their DRM restrictions with no loss of sound quality. These songs can then be played outside of the iTunes environment, even on operating systems not supported by iTunes and on hardware not supported by Apple.
Method #2: Use a recording software and sound card.
TuneBite, SoundTaxi, WMA Converter are these of the most popular software tools.
Method #3: Burn a copy to an audio CD and then rip/encode it.
If you have lots of music, you might need a big pile of CDs to convert everything with the "burn and rip" method . Tune4Mac M4P Converter takes an even smarter method which simulates a real CD burner, eliminating the need for real CD-R discs. This makes the whole conversion process automatically and faster. The Windows operating system will treat the virtual drive just like a real one, so you can tell your CD burning software to access the virtual drive by its own drive letter.
Tune4Mac is technology-proof, does not bypass any digital copy protection and therefore conforms with all digital copy protection measures, provided that the user is legally entitled to listen to the music.
