Your Questions About Mp3 Players Compatible With Itunes

Ruth asks…

Is a Zune mp3 player compatible with itunes or windows media player?

What is it compatible with if neither?

dknol answers:

The Zune mp3 player is only compatible with the Zune software (that comes with the Zune packaging).

According to Wikipedia:

“Although the Zune software is a modified version of Windows Media Player, the Zune device was designed to only work with the Zune software. Zune software requires Windows XP or Vista, but can run on other versions of Windows with minor modifications.”

Jenny asks…

Is there a non-apple mp3 player that will be compatible with itunes?

I'm looking for an mp3 player that I can put my music on without having to comvert to other file types.

I have all my music on itunes but want an mp3 player that's not made by apple- is there one that is itunes compatible?

dknol answers:

As the music in iTunes is encrypted with DRM, you cannot directly put it on any non-Apple MP3 player. The easiest way is to burn the music to an audio CD and then rip it back to Windows Media Player or a similar program as an MP3. Or you can get some software to help you. I use TuneClone to do this. Though not free, it is very well worth a try.

Chris asks…

What other mp3 players support iTunes?

I use iTunes to handle my music files on my computer, and it works phenomenally for me.

That said, I plan on spending some money to buy myself an mp3 player; however, I want it to be compatible with iTunes. So, what mp3 players (besides iPods, of course) support iTunes, if any?

None get an mp3 man

Carol asks…

Is itunes compatible with other MP3 devices?

I have an mp3 player and I'm purchasing songs from the the itunes store but it wont let me transfer to my mp3 player. I don't know if I'm doing it right or if itunes just isn't compatible with other mp3 players. Someone help please?

dknol answers:

Hi Victoria. Songs that you download from iTunes are in m4a format, which is not compatible with many other mp3 players. No worries, though. ITunes has a conversion function to create mp3 copies which will work on most anything. Here's how to convert:

– Open iTunes
– Click on the album
– Press ctrl+A to select all the songs
– Click Advanced at the top of the screen and select Create mp3 Version

You should then be able to drag and drop the songs to your mp3 player or use whatever software to add it to your player. (I don't think iTunes syncs with non-Apple devices.) You might want to consider getting music from Amazon because the downloads are already in mp3 format.

Hope this works smoothly for you.

Laura asks…

is there a way you can convert your mp4 songs on itunes to mp3 songs compatible with my mp3 player?

i don't have an ipod and i can't play my mp4 songs that i downloaded on itunes on my reg mp3 player. does anyone know how i can convert them?

dknol answers:

The music you download from iTunes is drm protected. In order to play it on non-apple mp3/mp4 players, you need to remove the drm and convert the protected music to drm free mp3 format. The easiest way is to burn an audio cd in itunes and rip it back as mp3 format. Or you can get some software to help you.

I would recommend you check out this article which shows three methods to convert iTunes music to MP3:
