iTunes help needed

So I bought a bunch of songs from the iStore for my kid brother. Big problem now. In order for him to listen to the songs iTunes asks him for my login. I copied the files then burned them to a CD. They are still in the native iTunes format. Is there anyway that I can get these songs to work for him?

You need to find a program to remove the drm or give him your login.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I haven't got a chance to do this yet. Tomorrow I will make a copy of the files and load them on my iTunes at work so I know what I need to do for my brothers.

Stupid locked files.

I tried the first method, to convert DRM AAC to mp3 and it did not work on the newer versions of Itunes AAC songs for me. I am sure the second method would work, but I am too lazy to do that now , so I will stick to my Ipod for a while.

You are allowed up to 5 registered PC to transfer the music you just bought. So by entering your login it will recognize his PC as an authorized "user" so that it will accept your song and allow his computer to put it on his IPOD

I saw that option but I wonder if he then will be able to use my iStore account.

I don't want that.

update

I used my sign on to allow his PC to listen to the music.

Good thing that his iTunes did not save my account info in the iStore section.
