Protected-WMA and iTunes

Here's what I would do to convert protected-WMA to AAC and add the songs to my iTunes library (and eventully to my iPod):

Note: I'm going to use Windows Media Player version 10 (you can download it if you don't have it already, or you can use some of the older versions with slightly different steps).

1. Go to Library.

2. If your songs are not in the Library already, you should add them to the Library by selecting File -> Add to Library -> Add Folder... or Add File or Playlist...

3. Right-click on My Playlists and select New...

4. Drag the songs to the right. Make sure your list will fit into one CD (for example: 70 minutes or 80 minutes depending on the media you're using).

5. After you finish making the list, click on Start Burn with a CD-R (or CD-RW) in the CD-Writer drive.

After finishing the CD(s), you have to import the songs back with iTunes, which is very easy:

Open iTunes and insert the CD that you just made, then click on Import.

There are softwares that gives you the ability to convert protected-WMA to AAC or MP3 Posted by Hello

Unfortunately, this process does not work on WMA files downloaded from SprialFrog. Or at least, I can't get it to work.
