Converting Apple copy protected m4p files: some options.
I have been asked a few times if mTrax supported Apple copy protected m4p files; as of mTrax version 18.104.22.168, mTrax does not support m4p files (not to be confused with mp4 audio files, which are supported).
If you have m4p files on your computer and want to use them in mTrax, you will have to convert them to one of the supported formats like mp3.
There are many ways to convert these m4p files and many places on the web that describe various options.
One option is to burn them to CD and re-import then as mp3 for example.
Another option is to use an m4p converted software. There are many such software available on the web, a Google search will list quite a few of them.
One mTrax user suggested this link: http://www.m4p-mp3.com/?gclid=CIuWiquHjpQCFQKfnAodPhIoWA. He seemed very happy with the results. This software costs about $25.
If you have tried other options and are happy with them, please let us know!
Of course, you could always decide to buy your music from such sites as http://www.mp3panda.com/. Your downloads will be fornatted as MP3s there, no copy protection.
If you know of other reputable music download sites that do not use copy protection, please let us know on this thread!
