[Music Transformer - Mac] will allow you to remove the digital protection from your DRM tracks in iTunes. Although it looks like DRM will probably be abandoned in the future you may still have purchased DRM tracks in the iTunes Store. You might want to remove the DRM so that you can play these tracks on any device and make your own copies. The simplest way would have been to burn them to a CD and rip them to an unprotected format, which can be a bit of a hassle. Music Transformer [aka DRM Dumpster] takes tracks in groups of 10 to 20 and automatically removes the DRM without you having to worry about it. It automatically goes through the protected tracks and performs the erase/burn/rip cycle for you, saving you a lot of time and effort.

Should you use a rewriteable CD-RW or Virtual CD Drive software?

You can use Music Transformer with either a rewriteable CD-RW (not a CD), or with Virtual CD Drive software, like BurningThumb’s Virtual CD-RW. (If you buy it bundled with Music Transformer, you ‘ll save $10.) When deciding between rewriteable CD-RW or Virtual CD Drive software, here’s what you should consider:

  • CD-RWs are available from most Office Supply stores (Staples, Office Depot, etc.) and a inexpensive. You can re-use the same CD-RW multiple times.
  • If your Mac doesn’t have a CD drive, you can still use a CD-RW if you buy an external CD Drive. (Warning: using an external CD Drive will be slower than using one built in to your Mac.)
  • Using Virtual CD software instead of an actual CD Drive and a CD-RW will be faster, about 10x faster. If you’re converting a lot of iTunes m4ps, using a CD-RW will take a lot longer!
  • Whether your Mac has a CD drive or not, you can use Virtual CD software and save a lot of time. This is actually why we wrote Virtual CD-RW – to speed up converting iTunes m4p to mp3. If you want to save time and money, buy it bundled with Music Transformer and save $10!
