converting apple audio files to pc format
You probably have AAC files on your MAC. If these are not copy protccted, you can convert them to mp3 files before transfer to the pc with your usb drive. mp3 files will play with almost anything on the pc. (note: if you purchased these files form Apple for your Ipod, you can not transfer them to the pc because of the security protections on your file that prevent this)
they aint ACC files
if they are ACC files shouldnt itunes be able to read them? coz itunes doesnt. i got the music files of a friend, is there anyway that i cant convert them to mp3 now that they are on my PC?
itunes won't play them if they have DMR protection unless
you have a license on your pc. Getting copies from friends won't work. That's what DMR is intended to prevent.
not the problem
that is not the problem, the person i got the music off has bought the CD's and just copied them on to the mac.
when i transfer them to PC the file extention is ''._'' and whatever the name is. someone said that just the wrong files were copied. so im going bac to the mac and checking that out. Any other ideas?
If you are copying someone else's CDs, that is piracy. Don't
ask for help with piracy here.
it shouldnt be the problem
the music has already been copied on to the mac, so it isnt coming directly off the cd, so that shouldnt be the problem
piracy is piracy...it isn't ok to copy pirated stuff, and no
one on this forum will help. It violates the TOS.
This discussion is dead on arrival. It doesn't matter that you had the CD or not. iTunes may lock up the ripped CD content.
The fix is all so easy.
Pull out your CD and rip it again, but on your new PC or MAC.
Please understand that no one will help you crack the iTunes lock.
