    I'm sure there's a zillion threads on this already, but I haven't found one. I have iTunes agent to bring over my music from iTunes to my droid. The only files that don't switch over are the albums I bought on iTunes and are thus copyrighted. What is the best way to unlock these files?

    If its just albums, you could use a CDRW to burn the songs to an audio CD, and then rip the songs back to your computer. With a CDRW, you could format the disc afterwards and use it again for the next bunch of songs.

    iTunes should no longer have DRM on MP3 music files anymore though.

    Do I have to do something to the files afer burning the CD? Because I tried adding them to the phone directly and it didn't take. And tehn I tried adding them to iTunes droid folder and it still didn't take.

    when you burn the songs (from within iTunes) to a music CD (so that it will play on a normal cd/dvd player) it will basically create unprotected songs from the protected ones. After that, insert the CD, and use either iTunes (change the rip format from AAC to MP3) or Windows Media Player (change the default wma ripping format to MP3) to rip your created music cd into mp3 files again, but this time they will be unprotected.

    It is a bit of a work-around, but it works.

    Have a look in the iTunes documentation on how to make music cd's from your songs, as well as on how to rip your music cds into your iTunes library in case you run into complications.

    here are a few links

    iTunes: How to Burn a High-Quality Audio CD

    How do I have iTunes rip CDs into MP3 format? :: Free Tech Support :: Ask Dave Taylor!

    CD Ripping Software - iTunes Tutorials


    in short:

    1. use iTunes to make music audio cd from your songs/albums
    2. rip created audio cd back to computer into non-DRM format (mp3)
    3. copy newly ripped files to Droid.

    Think I got it. For some reason having problem getting iTunes to let me log in as admin, but that's a separate problem. But I think you got me on the right path. Thanks man.
