    Apple TV


    Just purchased a apple tv from a young man that is in the military. Its the older one 1st generation and works well. He left about 3000 songs on it and i really want to transfer them to my pc or external hard drive or my itunes. That was one of the reasons i purchased it instead of the new one. I think for the price i paid and the amount of music on it I came out ok. The problem is that its in itunes and of course I cant log into his itunes cause its password protected. Tried making contact with the guy I purchased it from and he has just been deployed for a year overseas to Okinawa Japan. Can someone please assist me on getting the music off the apple tv to my pc, external or my itunes account.

    What you are doing is illegal; thus it should not be discussed here.

    Besides, if the songs were purchased with his iTunes account, then they are tied to that account and you'll find no easy way to transfer them to yours unless you have his account information.

    You may be able to transfer the songs, but any songs protected with DRM will not play even after they are put on a new computer. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.

    Of course, non-DRM tracks are a different story......:D
