Itunes Music Library To Dvd

Question

Hi All

 

Just purchased Creator 2011 standard and have not installed it yet; still reading the manual.

 

My first question (there will probably be more once I get into the program) is: can I take music purchased from iTunes and sitting in my iTunes Library, copy into a MP3 format to my 'C' drive with Creator 2011; to be later put onto CD-R (to be played on CD player) or MP3 player. And copied to DVD-RW as a 'backup'? I do know that iTunes format AAC will not play on an MP3 player.

 

On my previous computer (Win98) I had Creator 5 installed and was able to rip tracks from my CDs to the computer and compile my own CDs. If I remember correctly the format for CDs is not MP3; but I'm sure that Creator 2011 knows better than me what to do as long as I instruct it to take MP3 format and burn a Audio CD.

 

I apologize if my terminology isn't correct. I have iTunes v 10.1.1.4 and running Win XP SP3 on my desktop.

 

Thanks in advance for your help/advice

Barb

Itunes is a site that relies heavily on making sure DRM protection is not ignored. You can only burn ITunes library to a CD using the ITunes application. (see edit below)

 

As to what you used to do with reator 2011 vs Creator 5,

 

You can still rip music from a purchased CD or a non-protected DVD to a library on your computer and use it. Do not put it into the ITunes library.

 

There are many formats you can rip to. If you have the space, wav is still the best and that is what you would use to burn an audio CD. Yes, the program will convert the mp3 (or other format)) to put it on a disc so that it can be played. I prefer Music Disc Creator.

 

I have been asked to clarify that burning a CD from ITunes and then ripping that back to your computer is considered illegal. There are sites where you actually buy the music and you have fewer restrictions.

Hi There

OK now I'm very confused...

It was my understanding that iTunes music was DRM Protected, but now most of (if not all) music was unprotected. It was also my understanding that when you purchased music from iTunes, you could convert it to a format that could be played on MP3 players, if you didn't own an iPod but purchased music thru iTunes. In order to convert to another format, while the music was DRM protected, one first had to copy to CD/DVD then copy back. Now iTunes will convert minus that step. Also, Apple (and iPod users from various forums) are very big on 'backing up' your iTunes library, just in case.

 

You replied "I have been asked to clarify that burning a CD from ITunes and then ripping that back to your computer is considered illegal. There are sites where you actually buy the music and you have fewer restrictions." This I don't understand; I have purchased the music, whether single or album. I just want to be able to listen to it in a format that my MP3 player (SansaClip) can use. Does this mean I have to buy myself an iPod??

 

I apologize for not understanding. I also do not want to do anything considered illegal. I have been surfing the web searching for answers on how to do things correctly and legally. If I'm on the wrong track or have been misled, please point me in the right direction.

Apparentily I was very confused when I read and replied to your original post. I read much more into it than was there. Things have changed since I last read about ITunes terms of use.

 

I did a litttle more research and found these tips to be helpful.

Backing up ITunes music.

Burning an Audio CD using ITunes.

 

The closest thing I could find to put music on a device other than something made by Apple was in footnote 2 on this page

 

1.iTunes DRM-protected music includes audio with a bit rate of 128 kbps and allows users to transfer songs and videos to up to five computers, burn seven copies of the same playlist to CD, and sync to an unlimited number of iPods.

2.iTunes Plus music refers to songs and music videos available in our highest-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding (twice the current bit rate of 128 kbps), and without digital rights management (DRM). There are no burn limits and iTunes Plus music will play on all iPods, Mac or Windows computers, Apple TVs, and many other digital music players. Note: I would assume that since you are allowed to convert the music to be put on a CD, you are allowed to convert this AAC music to whatever your SANSA will accept.

3.Purchases made from the App Store and iBookstore can be re-downloaded for free as long as the app/book is still available for purchase.

 

Having said that, I want to emphasise that I am no lawyer and are not qualified to give legal opinions.! :P

 

Also I just read this about Itunes downloads.

So as far as the original question goes do this.

 

Open the Roxio Home application.

Go to Music/Audio

Go to Edit and Transfer

Go to Batch convert and transfer

Add all your tracks and go through the rest of the steps

When you get to Convert then choose your format (mp3) and bit rate.Choosing more than 256 won't help because the files are that to begin with.

Also in this step choose the destination.

 

Convert them all and you'll have mp3's that will play on an mp3 player or can later be burned to a disc.

 

I download from iTunes using the iTunes Plus tracks.

They have no DRM on them and you can use them for personal use as you like.

The files are actually m4p files.

In your iTunes library right click one of the tracks and the hit Get Info.

The pop up box will show AAC downloaded file and the format as being m4p.

 

Hope this helps

Below is a link to the license agreement you accepted, terms of use from itunes.

 

No one here knows what you bought/rented from itunes and how long you've had the music in your library.

 

I would suggest re-reading it, if you have any questions/uncertain ("OK now I'm very confused"), Apple includes this statement just for you "you should contact your legal advisor".

 

SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR iTUNES

 

If you are uncertain about your right to copy or permit access to

any material you should contact your legal advisor.
