View Full Version : iTunes Store, etc.

Usually, when I buy an album from the iTunes Music Store that I don't want to be protected anymore, I'll burn it on to a CD as audio, then rip it back as MP3 and delete the protected iTunes AAC file so I can send it to people and shit.

But I don't wanna do that for the single songs I've bought here and there. Is there any way to convert to non-protected MP3? I've considered using Audacity, dunno if it'll work.


ps. If a Mac vs. PC vs. Linux or iTunes vs. some other music/media player war breaks out, I swear to God I'm gonna fucking kill me.

pps. If an iPod vs. any other music player war breaks out, I'm gonna fucking kill YOU.

ew, why would you use an iPod with a mac and then buy music for it? Gross.

I have no idea how to help you; I steal all my music from interwebs.

I steal about 95% of music from the interwebz, but then there's the obscure synthy shit that's completely impossible to get for free. Ugh!

Zomg, iPod are teh suck.

I kid. As far as you questing goes would mounting it with something like daemon or something work? Probably not...

I did a quick search for tutorials and here are couple that look interesting. Note that i've never done it myself however.

I thank you kindly, and also apologize for not googling the shit myself sooner.

Yeah, you just had to search for DRM... that's the keyword.

I'm a real google snob and it pains me when people search for stuff poorly (this is not supposed to imply anything about your skillz riquito, I'm just reminded of looking over my buddy's shoulder thinking, "Ugh why would you choose those as your search terms?")

ps ricky you fail at google

There's this girl on another board I go to who wouldn't google shit for herself. She'd ask the most annoying simple googleable "look it up on imdb in two seconds" type of questions until one day she suddenly bought a clue and started doing that shit herself and then berating others for asking stupid questions.

This seems to be a decent piece of software.

Audacity should work. I haven't tried MP4 files but its a really great program and I've only had problems with WMA files (which makes me wonder if I actually have tried MP4 files)

Oh, and you BUY music? What are you, gay?

10-11-2007, 11:14 AM
Of about 7,000 songs on my computer, I've purchased about 40.

It's not that hard when you ... y'know. Have a job + life.

zomg burnz.

Life has nothing to do with buying music. Does not compute. You jerk.

10-11-2007, 01:15 PM
I'll compute you you little...

The "life" part was meant to confirm the "job" part, and that part has everything to do with buying music/not caring or judging whether others buy music no matter how much anyone gets for free...!

Learn to read. Jerk.

lol. Jerk.
