How can I convert DRM protected music to .mp3 for transfer to a cloud music service?
Well, best is to look for a drm removal software. You would need one that is able to convert protected files to another format. I recommend that you try Audials, I personally have been quite satisfied with it. And converting drm protected files to mp3 should be no problem.
Many players provide this option :
Hello, if your music has formats compatible with windows media player, you can rip the music to windows media audio format. Once converted, do the same process and using windows media player, convert it to mp3. You can also burn cd with the music converted to windows media audio format and then rip the cd to mp3 format.
