Re: itunes

You have to convert them to MP3 with Rhapsody or iTunes.

MP3, yes, AAC and MP4, no. Yo9u will need to use MSC mode and drag and drop your mp3s. With Videos, you'll need to convert them. Hope this helps Smiley Happy

Re: itunes

You need to look at what format the music file is. If it is m4a, like many iTunes Music Store files, it has to be converted to mp3, either with iTunes itself or something like Media Coder.

They are all 'Protected AAC audio files'.  Anything I can do to get them on my sansa?

Re: itunes

I think if you burn your protected AAC files to an audio CD and then turn around and rip them from the CD in MP3 format you'll be good to go.  If you use a CD-RW you can erase it and use it again.  I don't think you're violating any copyright agreement by doing this as long as you're only using the files for your own purposes and not sharing them with others.

Yes, that would be perfectly legal!!

 

There are probably easier ways to do it, but you'll have to search since they're probably quasi-legal so aren't easy to find on the 'net...
