    I have some music files that are DRM protected in the WMA format.

    Is there any way to remove this protection?

    Thanks in advance

    if you have access to a PC, i believe you can use iTunes for windows to burn these songs to an audio CD and that audio CD will work like any other audio CD you can use with iTunes for Mac.

    in iTunes on the Mac, go preferences > general and click on import settings. set import using and setting as desired, ok out, and insert the burnt audio CD.

    That sounds possible. It would be best if there was something I could do on just the mac :)

    If I am not mistakin' there was some Tunebite app that worked on pcs for the job.
    Basically, Tunebite could remove drm copy protection from protected music and convert protected wma music to mp3 or whatever is needed to make them compatible for itunes, cell or mp3 player or whatever.

    Not sure if it works on the mac as well, but it's brilliant on a pc if u have one around.
