An easy solution to the problem of putting copy-protected iTunes files to Windows Media Player.

Let’s say you have built up a media collection including music, movies and TV-episodes on iTunes over years, and now you want to move these entire digital media collection from iTunes to Windows Media Player (WMP) for organization on your computer, or sync them from WMP to Zune, PDA like Palm Treo Pro, or home theater system for play.


But iTunes wont let you drag and drop some of its files to WMP directly, or some of iTunes music/video files won’t show up in WMP even though you succeed in importing iTunes to Windows Media Player. The reason for this is that these iTunes music/movie files are probably encrypted by ‘FairPlay’ DRM protection that prevent copying them to non-Apple players. Another reason is WMP can’t support M4V videos and AAC audios with the file extension .m4a from iTunes store.


Here I will tell you a easy solution called iSkysoft DRM removal program to solve the problem. You can use this program to rip out DRM from copyrighted iTunes files (.m4v/.m4b/.m4p), and convert iTunes music, movie or television files to a format (WMA or MP3) the WMP likes. Then you can transfer/play these incompatible iTunes media files onto Windows Media Player. Check out a Detailed Review of iSkysoft DRM Removal OR

How To Convert iTunes To Windows Media Player (WMP)?

Step 1 Load Source Files.


Click 'Add Video' button to load your media, usually iTunes downloaded media stores in directory *:\My Documents\My music\iTunes. Namely, this program supports preview and batch conversion which let you convert multiple iTunes files to WMP at one time.



Step 2 Set output format.

If you convert iTunes music to Windows Media Player, click “Audio file to” drop down list and select MP3 or WMA as output format. If you turn iTunes movie to Windows Media Player, click “Video file to” drop down list and select MP4 or WMV as output format. The default setting are optimized to maintain iTunes Video quality while control the output file size, you also can reset the output parameters including Formats, video resolution, frame rate, encoder and bit rate etc. by clicking"Setting".



Step 3 Start Conversion.


Click “Convert” button and be prepared to wait 20 minutes or so while the program will accomplish this conversion task.


Step 4 Add the new music/video files from iTunes to Windows Media Player.

Click "Find Target" to locate the converted iTunes music/video files, and then copy them to WMP default folders on your computer. Next, run your WMP, press on the Library tab then click “Add to Library”, the player will scan through the default folder and add new media files that it finds to its library.


Tips for you:


1. This method will miss the attributes of the songs, so many guys hope to transfer iTunes artwork to Windows Media Player. Actually, WMP is available for obtaining album artwork, track names automatically. simply select the song and/or album and right click. Then click "Find Album Info" and the results for your song/s will come up. If one of the answers is not the one you want, simply click on the right artwork and then click "Next" and if you are sure that the song information is right, click "Finish".


2. If you want to add iTunes rentals to WMP, you need to keep iTunes rentals on your computer firstly.
