Well I haven't dealt with that, but generally iTunes won't let you play their files (m4a right?) on another player or (if you bought it on iTunes) let you send it to another person's iTunes account. I just burn them onto a CD and then rip it onto the computer again.

Sorry if that's not what you're talking about...I'm not the most computer savvy

well, I could get most of my songs onto my zen by converting them, but 50 or so of them wouldn't convert because it said they are protected.

burning discs didn't work, unless you have to burn them from your own computer? my friend burned the songs for me off his itunes account. Again, i'm not talking about just getting music onto my Zen, it's the protected files.

If you burn the protected files to a CD, then rip them to the computer as MP3s, then they will be unprotected.

Or you could just download a program called TuneBite, which does what you're asking about.

If you bought them on iTunes, you're done for. There's nothing you can do (fun fact: EMI just released their entire catalog DRM-free, and maybe you can re-buy songs at a reduced price to remove the DRM). If you merely imported them into iTunes you can convert them to mp3, haven't used it in a long time so I forget exactly how. It can be done.

Just torrent the files you already bought as .mp3s. Its not like you're stealing them right? You already paid for the digital music so go ahead.

Yeah I do this all the time its a bit of a pain because you can only do 20 songs at a time or so but it works. Burn the encrypted files to a CD (making sure you make an audio CD and not an MP3 CD) then import them back into iTunes from the CD making sure you replace the original files.

Limewire all of the "protected" files which you downloaded, and if the protected files were from a disc just rip those cds again.

You can burn them to (audio)CD off an authorised computer, and then re-rip using an mp3 encoder. It's what i did with .m4a files.
