I’ve posted an article about converting Audible audiobooks (.AA) to MP3s on this website, but what about the .M4B audiobooks which is also provided by Audible and sold in Apple iTunes store with Apple's FairPlay Digital Rights Management. Here’s how to remove DRM from iTunes audiobooks (.M4B) and convert the copy-protected M4B file into a DRM-free MP3 format on your computer so that you can play/listen M4B audiobooks on Sony walkman or Samsung MP3 players, or burn M4B files to a blank CD to play on a CD player.


Here I recommend you a piece of M4B DRM removal/converting program called iSkysoft DRM removal (Free trial), which will let you convert your M4B files to DRM-free MP3 format preserving original audio quality. Furthermore, it’s also capable of converting DRM copy-protected M4V, M4P, AA, AAX, WMV, WMA files to unprotected format MP4 or MP3. Check out a Detailed Review of iSkysoft DRM Removal OR


How to crack M4B files and convert M4B to MP3 with iSkysoft DRM removal:

Step 1 Start iSksoft DRM removal with iTunes closed. After iSkysoft DRM removal launch, just restart iTunes and load your copyrighted M4B files to it by clicking the “Add Video” icon in the top left corner of the application. Then a list of M4B files will appear in the list box of the program. Namely, this program supports batch conversion mode that help you convert up to 50~100 DRMed files at one time, save your time.



Step 2 Click "Audio files to" drop-down box to open the output profile, and select MP3 as output format. In addition, iSkysoft DRM Removal allow users to customize the audio quality output through resetting the output parameter including Sample Rate, Channel, Encoder and Bit Rate.



Step 3 Hit “Convert” button to start converting M4B to MP3, then just wait for the conversion to finish.


This process works very stably without errors and is pretty simple. But the drawback is that it will cost you round about $35. If you don’t want to buy a program online but to find a good free M4B DRM removal/conversion program or another way for accomplishing this, you can try this CD burning&ripping method. The process is simple. You burn your purchased DRM-protected M4B files to a blank CD+/-R, and rip the disc to MP3s. It must be note that, i have ever used this method to succeed in cracking my copyrighted iTunes music, but i'm not so sure that if this method can work for iTunes audiobooks. Furthermore, this method need you to download & install some assisting software like CD burning software, CD ripper and converter etc.
