    It removes the DRM (Digital Right Managements). For more info on DRM, please read wiki or online dictionary.

    OMG! im sorry! this does not actually work. lol

    false alarm

    you can still burn it to a CD and re encode it though... Sorry guys.

    all of the protected songs have the .m4p extension, P as in protected and iTunes apparently just skips these songs in the syncing process if you dont have permission to play them. WinAmp however....

    There is a utility for removing the DRM on songs YOU own (as in you have access to play them in itunes and have the account details).... i use it all time time simply so i can change metatag info and volume level them which you can't when DRM'd

    Other than that...burning to CD and re-ripping = fail!!! you're burning lossy files and re-ripping so you're even more lossy'd

    look for a program called FairUSEWmV. Google it. It removes the protection, and saves the file as a different file. So you have 2 files now, 1 drm, 1 without DRM, no loss of quality.

    Doesn't FairUSEWmV remove from Windows Media (as in WMa or WMv)

    Itunes stuff are m4p files ... i use QTFairUse6.5
    Works a treat ... also lossless, just needs to be run on an autorised computer

    actually... the trick is to just manually move the music folder back into the ipod after a restore. thats always how ive done it when fixing peoples ipods and it nevers loses a song.

    Fair enough... but for me ... i want to change the meta-data within the song on itunes, process them with the AACGAIN utility and to do that i need to de-drm them .

    I have never shared a song, i buy cd's which i rip, i buy songs on itunes, just like to be able to handle, process and play these songs in a way *I* want to.

    QTFU6.5 has never failed me once
