Convert from Apple iTunes Format

Apple iTunes doesn’t allow you to freely copy your music to devices other than your iPod. This hack shows you how to strip iTunes digital rights management so that you can use your files however you’d like.

I love my iPod and the iTunes Music Store is truly “the killer app.” I love the convenience of being able to buy “that one song” that I remember from 1978 without having to buy an entire album.

The iTunes software itself is a mixed bag. It’s slow starting up and it uses a lot of memory compared to other music players. I’d like to be able to listen to music I’ve purchased without having to run the iTunes program. I would also like to be able to listen to the songs I bought from the iTunes Music Store on something other than my iPod. This part of the hack will show you how to strip the digital rights management (DRM) features from your purchased music so that you can choose the time and place you listen to your music.
