Ipod Conversion to Zune

by snufflepuff57 / December 13, 2008 2:47 AM PST

Hello, I have been mostly using Itunes for my music organization. But now that i have seen the light, I have bought a Zune. My question: Is there any easy way to convert your Ipod/Itunes music into something that the Zune can use and play?

-Thanks Quinn Happy

tried, true, and legal way

If your songs are copy protected (aka DRM'ed) iTunes purchased tracks then burn to audio cd and rip them in your chosen format (mp3, wma). If they are un-DRM'ed AACs (if you had ripped your cds into AAC or purchased iTunes Plus tracks), then no conversion necessary as the Zune supports this format.

Is there anyway to do this with a Virtual CD? That will save the environment Silly

In reply to: Virtual?

A virtual cd should be fine. What we can't discuss is software that breaks the copy protection, though technically I suppose that is what we're doing when we do the burn cd/rip method. It is within your usage rights to burn songs as part of the same playlist up to 7 times.
