View Full Version : Itunes 4.5 troubles

I've searched the board, tried using a combination of Hymn and the
latest version of LAME-Itunes, but I can't get any of my purchased
music to play on my Slimp3 -- just silence when the songs are selected.
As a good 1/3 of my music was purchased via the ITMS, I'm desperately
trying to figure out how to share it with my Slimp3. And help would be
greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I just burn a CD with iTunes purchases and import them back in.

The problem is that hymn doesn't remove pre-iTunes 4.5 DRM, as near as
I can tell. At least it does't remove Apple's DRM from files that have
had DeDRMS run on them pre-iTunes 4.5.

I had the same problem last week and couldn't work around it. I ended
up just burning all the files I had bought from iTunes to CD, then
reripping them, which both degrades quality and is wasteful.

As a result, I'm back to buying CDs in the store.
