How to remove DRM from iTunes music files? I have purchased and download lots of music from iTunes store and I want to take away the lock that limits your use to non-Apple devices. Is there a program I can download that is able to remove iTunes music DRM from a large number of music files? Because obviously burning 1000+ music files to discs is not an option.
iTunes stopped selling music with DRM on it. Does this apply to music I already downloaded? Nope. It means that any new music you buy from them will not be DRM protected, but the old music you bought is still stuck with DRM. You can always do the burn all your songs to an audio CD and then rip them back into iTunes method of removing DRM, but it is a lengthy and irritating process. I would recommend a professional program (DRM Media Converter) to do this. This tool lets you easily remove iTunes music DRM in batches, so you don’t have to spend money on CD and time on burning.
