View Full Version : Protected AAC Audio File

Oct 30, 2011, 03:53 PM
Hi Everybody -

I don't understand what I could be doing wrong. I went to the iTunes store and selected iTunes Plus. iTunes went to work converting protected music to regular AAC files and moved the old stuff to a folder on my desktop.

However ....

For some reason I still have 584 Protected AAC Audio files in my directory and iTunes Plus says there are no more songs to convert.

Can someone help me?

I have the same problem. iTunes store tells me that I have upgraded to Plus but some songs are still Protected AAC Audio Files.

Are the unconverted files in question music that someone else bought and has authorized you to use?

probably be cheaper and easier to use iTunes match, it upgraded all my songs to unprotected 256k.
