How can I play music purchased by someone else on iTunes?

D. November 22, 2011

I had a friend give me an old iPod Nano with some iTunes purchased music on it. I got the music files transferred onto my PC and into my iTunes library. When I went to play a song track, it asked me for his iTunes password!? Anyway around this problem?

    I'm not going to tell you how to do that, as that would be plain old music piracy. But, I will tell you the google search you should do to learn how yourself:

    I'm brand new to Mac and all I did was hit show in finder and it showed up under music as an MP4, which when I dragged it to the Itunes showed up and played in Itunes some I converted to MP3 or the H..something numbers extension. Don't know if that will work for you .

    Because the songs purchased are DRM protected, you can only listen to them on specific computers and devices.

    Jhymn decodes the songs using the key from your iPod and/or your operating system and make a new file which is not protected, it keeps the cover art and song data as part of the file.

      Thanks for the tip!  I will try the Jhymn sofware first...

    Hello, if the person that gave you the nano is still your friend and you have a way of contacting him, I would contact him and ask for the information.
