ITunes question

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive November 2006: ITunes question

New iPod Shuffle at our house. I found a song on iTunes that I haven't found anywhere else, so I bought it. Now I want to move it to my Windows Media Player, because the iPod is DH's. It's telling me that it's encoded wrong for WMP and we've literally tried everything we can think of. Nothing works. Are they just not compatible or is there a trick that anyone knows of? TIA:)

I think they aren't compatible, but I am not certain. My son got an ipod shuffle last Christmas ( we all love using it!) but I have never tried moving any songs from itunes. I hope you get a better answer than mine!

I think my dd has burned cds, with the song, and then imported it into WMP, from the cd.

Apple uses digital rights management software that makes its music downloads incompatible with other music players. The music will play just fine on any computer running iTunes, though.

You will have to do what Dawn said- copy the music to a cd using iTunes, and then re-load it into Windows Media Player.

Thank you ladies!! After working on it together for 45 minutes, I told DH it's probably just not compatible.

DH's new Shuffle is TINY and so cool! I would never/rarely use one though, but he thinks he's hot stuff. :)
