John asks…

Will a song purchased from the iTunes store work with an MP3 player that isn't an iPod?

I have a Philips GoGear ViBE.

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.

Below is its step by step tutorial about how to get iTunes 8 music converted to MP3:

Nancy asks…

Can songs from iTunes work with other players? Can you burn them to a cd?

I just have a plain mp3 player, so that got me to thinking. Also, I want to maybe burn a cd of the songs I download from iTunes, so I can play them in my car. Can anyone answer the above questions?

dknol answers:

To burn songs onto a cd, first make a playlist of the
songs you want on the cd, then insert a blank cd, then
on the lower right corner of itunes, you'll see a button that
says “burn disc”, then just click that and it'll burn.

Synchronizing iPod and other players

iTunes can automatically synchronize its music and video library with an iPod every time it is connected. (The OS X version of iTunes can also synchronize with a number of other digital music players;[14] the Windows version will only support the iPod.[15]) New songs and playlists are automatically copied to the iPod and songs that have been deleted from the library on the computer are also deleted from the iPod. Ratings awarded to songs on the iPod will sync back to the iTunes library and audiobooks will remember the current playback position.

Automatic synchronization can be turned off in favor of manually copying individual songs or complete playlists; however, iTunes supports only copying music to the iPod but not from it, which has inspired third party software for the latter purpose. It is also possible to copy from the iPod using ordinary Unix command line tools, or by simply enabling the “show hidden files and folders” option under “folder options”, then copying music from the iPod drive to a local disk for backup.

When an iPod is connected that does not contain enough free space to sync the entire iTunes music library, a playlist will be created and given a name matching that of the connected iPod. This playlist can then be modified to the user's preference in song selection to fill the available space.

ITunes supports a number of other popular portable music players with some limitations, most notably the inability to play music purchased from the iTunes Music Store. Supported players include a number of NOMAD players from Creative Labs, some players from Rio Audio and Archos, and the Nakamichi SoundSpace 2 device. Other manufacturers may also offer integration by way of a device plugin. A number of third party programs have been created to help a user of iTunes to synchronize songs with any music player that can be mounted as an external drive.

Though iTunes is the only official method for synchronizing with the iPod, there are other programs available that allow the iPod to sync with other software players.

As of iTunes 7 purchased music can be copied from the iPod onto the computer. The computer must be authorized by that iTunes account. ITunes currently allows up to 5 computers to be authorized on one account. It does not allow you to transfer imported music files between computers. This may be necessary to back songs up, transfer songs to a new computer, or restore music after a disk failure using an iPod as the backup source. A number of shareware or freeware applications exist that complement iTunes.
