    Hi
    How can I download music on itunes and then put the songs on my Dell jukebox MP3 player? When I try it, the MP3 says that the file is non-music.
    Thanks

    Welcome to the world of DRM. Those songs are protected. It's against the forum rules here to help in breaking copy protection, so we can't help with this effort.

    John, I'm not sure what he is looking for is illegal. Just because a song was downloaded from the iTunes music store doesn't mean that he can't play it on the media player of his choice. However iTunes uses the MP4 protected file format and to my knowledge no MP3 players support it other than Apple's iPods.

    A good reason to stay away from iTunes (n)

    Correct, the only way to use those protected MP4 files is to break the copy protection, which is illegal under the DMCA, and also on this board. That's my point...

    There is a legal, but pain in the A**, way to get those m4p (not MP4) songs onto an MP3 player. I believe that iTunes still lets you burn an audio CD of the DRM songs. You can then rip the audio CDs to mp3.
