    I know i know its a mac forum, but i have a question. I belong to napster, because i like the unlimited song thing, but it only works for my pc. Is there any way i can get napster to work on my mac?

    short answer: no

    long answer: mac's can not decode DRM protected WMA files.

    if you strip the DRM which is illegal and i cant exactly say how to do it (it's possible google it) then you can either play it in WMP or itunes if you convert it.

    and it holds an added benefit that you can keep the music forever.

    he's paying for the unlimited downloads thing. he does not get to burn those tracks without paying $.99 per song.. in short.. that won't work here. defeating the purpose of paying $15/mo for unlimited titles.

    EDIT: not to mention the loss of quality on reencoding a second time. granted you'd have to do this anyway to put on an ipod.. but still...
