Hi all, I'm having difficulties with playing music that I (legally) downloaded in Itunes, in Windows Media Player. Can someone tell me how to do it, or give me a tool? Thanks in advance, easkum
It's an Apple format with Apple DRM. The entire point of it is that it's not supposed to play in other programs.
Yeah, if you could, I would have taken full advantage of it by now. Also, isn't the format the reason you can never move it between computers?
I thought you could use it more than one PC, but only on a limited number?
I don't know, I'm most likely wrong. I just know you can't transfer from a MAC to XP.
Never used the thing personally. The only reason I even used iTunes (the program, not the store) was when I played a CD on one of our Macs (which I did a few times a month, if that).
By default songs on the Apple store come encoded with Apple's AAC codec. iTunes however can convert them to mp3, which is a WMP compatible format. Just make sure before you try and play them in WMP you enable mp3 files(Tools\Options\File Types).
I'm not sure if you can do it directly like Omen said. But I know that burning the songs to a CD, and then ripping them in MP3 format works fine.
But then I would need several CD's, is it possible with an USB-stick?
You could probably trick iTunes into thinking it is reading from a CD when it's actually reading from a directory or USB stick, but that's verging on methods used in piracy so no links here.
