Your Questions About Mp3 Players Compatible With Itunes

Sandra asks…

How do I convert music files from Itunes to be compatible in my mp3 player?

I just got an mp3 player that isn't an ipod and all my music is in itunes on my computer. Is there a way to convert those files to be compatible?

dknol answers:

Basically, when you buy music from iTunes, it comes with a copyright protection called DRM. These DRM-protected songs are locked so that they only work with Apple MP3 players. That means that if you bought a Microsoft Zune, you cannot use iTunes music.

So, what is the solution? You have to burn a CD. When you do this, the DRM is removed (because the music is converted to a non-DRM-compatible media). After you burn the CD, you can rip it to your PC as an MP3 file which no longer has DRM.

Alternatively, you can use TuneClone ( http://www.tuneclone.com/ ). TuneClone makes a virtual CD-ROM drive, tricking your PC into believing that you are burning a CD. Therefore, the DRM is removed without wasting a CD.

Here is a link to a tutorial using TuneClone and iTunes 8:

Is a Zune mp3 player compatible with Napster?

I would like to buy my boyfriend the Gears Of War 120gb Zune mp3 player for Fathers Day, but we only have iTunes or Napster and I must admit, I have never used Zune! Any (helpful) comments appreciated please!

dknol answers:

Napster is using for its music subscription service a special WMA DRM copy protection. Not every MP3-Player is able to play the Napster Music. As I saw the Zune Player is not on the list of compatible devices at Napser.com.

So you can´t use the Zune Player for Napster without converting the Music files to free MP3- or WMA-audio file. If you want to convert Napster WMA music to mp3 or to convert Napster to free MP3 you can use Tunebite as Windows converter tool.

Tunebite converts Napster music to any Audio file format for any device.
