    Hi, I want to use my music files (which i purchased on itunes) for my MP3 player I created for my website...The files are m4p format (aac protected as you know) -

    but does anyone know a workaround to use these?

    thanks!

    For protected aac files bought from the music store there isn't a way*

    However, for ones that you imported from CD yourself you can convert them to mp3 using iTunes. First change the import settings under the preferences to encode mp3. Then select the songs to converts and choose Advanced -> Convert selection to MP3.

    *There are a few hacks around that allow you to strip off the DRM sometimes. However, even if it was legal to do this, which is very questionable, it would not be legal to put them on your site I don't think.

    Burn to CD, then Re-Import.

    Would have thought that obvious as Apple condone burning to a CD 5 times.

    I don't think I am breaking any laws/rules (forum, or otherwise) as Apple allow, and advertise, the ability to burn their music files to CD freely.

    No DRM break necessary. Just burn it as CD Audio and re-rip it.

    Re-ripping for personal use is most likely legal, but putting them on a site afterwards most definitely is NOT.
