Default Would I be able to copy some of my iTunes music to my 8830?

Please Login to Remove!

If not, what's the best way to copy/convert some of my music files and transfer them to my 8830?

iTunes Purchased Music? Those are likely protected with Apple's DRM and can't be played on a device other than iTunes or an iPod.

As far as conversion to another format, that would be a violation of the user agreement you agreed to when you purchased those songs, so I'm a bit unwilling to help you accomplish that task.
It can be done, and I'm sure someone else will offer up that info for you.

That sucks. I mean, I paid for it already so what's so illegal about that? LOL owned by Apple.
I could burn the music onto a CD.. Then rip it with another program. My question is.. What program should I use and what's the best format to use for my 8830?

Try a program called Tunebite. It will remove the DRM.

I didn't say it was illegal.

I said it was a license violation. When you signed up for iTunes, you agreed to not strip the DRM protection off purchased music. It's in the end user license agreement for iTunes purchases.

Yeah, we all read the EULA. Uh huh. (he's right, though.)

But you can also burn them to a CD then import them back into iTunes. That will also strip the DRM.

wonder the same myself?

i never understood that i was locked into them! i just tried to download this software from Tunebite.com and it goes thru about 75% then has an error? is there another one i can use. i like the iTunes music library and dont want to change that. I just want to add songs to the phone, for media and ring tones. this can also eliminate having both my phone and ipod when at the gym.

thank you!

I'm with John...

I make a playlist of the tunes I want, then burn them to a CD.

Take the CD, and rip the music off the CD using Windows MEdia Player, and encode it to MP3. Works like a charm...

I tried this and had some blunders. But I did find after I had burned a CD that I could:
Media Manager
Import Audio
Choose CD drive
Import Songs to Media card

That worked for me...I only did a couple of songs...

My blunders were once the songs were ripped in Media Player, they would not transfer to the BB...

Thank you though! I'm so happy now!

Apparently he didn't return to explain. Too bad since I'm looking at the same issue.....
