How to unleash iTunes mp3 song purchases
Everyone loves iTunes. . .
even though there are alternatives like eMusic that sell much of the same music for 70% cheaper.
One of the downsides of iTunes is that it’s made to work with iPods in general. If you have another brand mp3 player, or like to burn CD’s and make different mix CD’s to play offline, you can run into some DRM issues that limit the ways you can use the downloaded songs from iTunes.com.
HotRecorder for Music is a legal way to convert your iTunes and Yahoo! Music Files into universal formats playable on any music player. HR4Music is a downloadable application that converts and manages your song library so that all the audio files you have become mp3 files that can be copied and used anywhere, unlimited # of times. It converts all songs into .wav or .MP3 formats. Right now, HotRecorder for Music works with iTunes up to version 7.3.0 and the full version is available at hotrecorder.com for $20. They also offer a trial download for free.
Perhaps it’s time to stop accepting limitations and use the stuff we buy they way we want it.
