Thumbs up How to Remove iTunes DRM on Windows and Mac?

sponsored links

 
There are many ways of removing iTunes DRM. On Windows, you can remove DRM from iTunes by ripping and burning a CD disc. Or you can turn to some DRM Removal Software like [b]Daniusoft Media Converter Pro[/b] [img]***********.softdiggs.com/digital-media-converter-pro.php[/img]. On Mac OS X, iMovie is already the perfect freeware for removing DRM from iTunes music. So the following article is dedicated to introducing several methods of removing DRM from iTunes music/video on Windows and Mac.

[b]Part 1. Remove DRM from iTunes music by ripping and burning a CD disc (Win & Mac)[/b]

1. Insert a CD-R or CD-RW disc into your CD-ROM drive.

2. Burn DRM iTunes music to make an Audio CD. You cannot select the MP3 CD option since it requires the DRM protected iTunes music be converted to MP3.

3. After the Audio CD is successfully burned, insert the disc into your CD-ROM drive again. Then you can use iTunes to import the music tracks on the burned disc as MP3 files.

[b]Part 2. Remove DRM from iTunes music/video using Media Converter Pro (Win)[/b]

1. Download [b]Media Converter Pro[/b] [img]***********.softdiggs.com/digital-media-converter-pro.php[/img], install and launch it. ( Free Download [img]***********.softdiggs.com/download/daniu-digital-media-converter-pro_full310_477180.exe[/img] )

[b]Note:[/b] Apart from a DRM removal tool, Media Converter Pro also acts as a Video Converter, an HD Video Converter and an Audio Converter.

2. Import DRM protected iTunes music/video

3. Select the output format

By clicking the "Convert audio to:" or "Convert video to:" box, you can select the output format for the source iTunes DRM music/video (M4P, M4V, M4B). For example, if you want to watch DRM protected iTunes movies or TV shows (.m4v) on your PSP, you can choose "PSP, PS3" from the profile category list and choose "PSP Video MPEG-4(*.mp4) as the output format.

4. Start to convert DRM iTunes music/video files

Click the "Start" button to begin to convert DRM iTunes music/video files. Then, you can enjoy iTunes music and videos without any restriction.

[b]Part 3. Remove DRM from iTunes music with Apple iMovie (Mac)[/b]

Run iMovie and create a New Project.

In the iMovie window, select the 'Music' tab. You will notice that the top right portion of the interface now offers a media browser. Locate the playlist which contains purchased music, or search by artist/title.

Select the DRM-laden song and drag the file from the media browser into the iMovie timeline.

In order to export the song, iMovie requires that a visual image be associated with the audio track - iMovie thinks that it is going to be exporting a movie. Simply drag a blank image (or any other image) to the track above the previously imported audio file. Once iMovie has processed the image, select the 'Export using QuickTime...' sub menu item from found inside 'Share' in iMovie's menu bar.

In the Save as… dialogue, select "Sound to AIFF" in the Export drop-down menu, Choose an appropriate directory for iMovie to export to, title the file, and select 'Save'.

[img]***********.softdiggs.com/img/remove-itunes-drm-mac-1.png[/img]

Locate the exported AIFF audio file and drag to your iTunes Library. Right-click on the file and select "Create MP3 Version". Once completed, 'Get Info' on the new file, edit meta data, add album art, and trash the originally purchased and AIFF audio files from your iTunes library.

[b]Note:[/b] This method can only be use to remove DRM from iTunes music files.

This piece of Media Converter software can also help you convert DRM protected iTunes M4V to (DRM free) MP4/AVI/WMV/FLV files and M4P to (DRM free) MP3/M4A/WAV/WMV files.
