    Hi ... I just bought from iTunes store a music album and I notice which I thought you could burn onto disk and play on any type of music media player but it would seem not the case . I am only able to listen to this album with Quick Time which I don't like very much . Is there any program which can convert my music so I am able to listen to it with foobar or WMP ? Thanks

    Hi
    Aren't you supposed to burn them to a CD-R or CD-RW and then rip them back as mp3?

    Hi,

    You have a few choices:

    1. Do what bat999 said, Burn them from iTunes onto a CD and then re-rip them as .mp3's by importing the CD you burned back into iTunes (make sure you have the encoder set for .mp3 not aac)

    2. If your version of iTunes is prior to iTunes 7.5 than you can use the latest software available here: http://www.hymn-project.org/ to remove DRM.

    3. You can use Tunebite, it isn't free but works very fast and does a good job in my experience of converting .m4p to .mp3 with little to no audible quality loss.

    Hopefully Amazon.ca will get it's behind in gear so we Canadians can also enjoy .mp3 downloads that don't need to be converted, like they have now in the US.

    ***EDIT***
    It would appear as though option 2 is no longer available due to a Cease and Desist order placed on the the host for the HYMN Project......Apple flexing it's muscles!

    Or, you can also use a sound-recording program (like Audacity, for example), to record the audio as you're playing it, then save that to an MP3. But that's not an elegant solution, either.

  5. Are you trying to use iTunes?
    1. Download iTunes according to your computer system. Then launch it after installation and go to the iTunes tab > Preferences on Mac, or if you are using Windows, edit > Preferences.
    2. Go to the General button and click Import Settings, select MP3 Encoder from the Import pop-up menu, then click OK to save your settings.
    3. Select the song in the library and click File > Create New Version > Create MP3 Version. Now you will convert them, just wait for the files to be ready, and you will find your MP3 songs in the iTunes library after a while.
    The way to convert m4p to MP3 is FreeConvert.com, which you can use to convert online.
