How do I transfer iTunes music to Windows Media Player? I just got a new Cell Phone and the only way I can put music onto it is to use Windows Media Player. But the problem is that I have all my music on iTunes. So I want to move music from my iTunes Library to Windows Media Player. Unfortunately, I don’t have a clue on how to copy my iTunes music to Windows Media Player. If you could help me out, I’d appreciate it.
Unfortunately Apple decided to make their format only compatible with iTunes and iPods. The songs you buy on iTunes are downloaded in a format called AAC which are DRM protected, Windows Media Player doesn’t recognize the format yet. So to speak, if you want to copy iTunes music to Windows Media Player, you need to remove iTunes DRM and convert them to a format that Windows Media Player will read.
If you don’t have too many songs you can burn a CD in iTunes then rip it to WMP. If you have a lot of songs, you may want to find a program that will transfer AAC protected (which is what iTunes uses) to MP3. There are many 3rd party software which are able to remove DRM from iTunes music and convert iTunes music to Windows Media Player. Check out the step by step instruction below to learn how to remove and convert iTunes music to Windows Media Player.
