Hey guys, I searched and didn't find anything about this. Sorry if I missed it.
I recently bought an album from the wifi store, it loads into iTunes as a protected AAC file. I tried everything I could think of and couldnt figure out how to convert it to MP3. When I try to iTunes tells me it cant because it is a protected file. Any ways to get around this?

Thanks

Burn the AAC to a cd, then put the cd in the computer and open with iTunes. Then convert the songs on the cd to MP3..

Or if you don't want to take all that time, google a program called note burner.

Link? I'd like to convert all of mine, but there's WAY too many to burn them all.
