    Ok, so I got a free USB flash player which I need MP3's for. I have a bunch of purchased songs on iTunes and would like to get them on the flash player. Is there any way legally to get those converted?




    Side note: the MP3 player I got for my family buying way too much back to school clothes from JCPenny is a cheapo, but seems to work ok (especially since I can't afford an iPod.) Anyway, the book and box said it was only PC with Pentium compatible, but then it listed OS9 mac compatible. Well, I hooked the thing up to my iMac OSx and it worked great. I really wonder how many products out there on the shelves say they don't work for Mac and really do work. Anyone else come across this?

    The only way I know of is to burn a CD of the purchased songs, then rip the CD into mp3 format.

    will the copyright protection allow me to do this?

    It sucks that all I want to do is use a few songs on a lame 64 MB flash player and it is this hard to do.

    thanks

    Burning and ripping a CD works. It's not really legal, but it's not something you'll ever get "caught" for, and I say if you pay for the music then you should be able to do whatever you want with it.
