How to convert protected WMA to MP3 with TuneClone

TuneClone Audio Converter is a unique audio converter program. Compared with other audio converter programs, TuneClone converts music files via a virtual CD driver. All you need to do is burn your playlist to TuneClone's virtual CD drive by using your media player software, such as iTunes, Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, WinAMP, etc. The key step to use TuneClone is to select TuneClone's virtual CD-RW drive as CD burner and then burn your playlist. Your music files will be automatically converted during the burning and ripping process.

In my previous post, I talked about how to burn DRM protected iTunes M4P music to MP3 by using iTunes. Today, with the help of the same program TuneClone, I'd like to elaborate on how to convert protected WMA to MP3 using TuneClone's virtual CD drive. Below are the detailed steps:

1. Download TuneClone from and install it.

TuneClone is fully compatible with Windows XP and Windows Vista. A virtual CD burner will be installed. This virtual CD-RW will be used to convert music files.

2. Set "Burn" option at Windows Media Player

Launch Windows Media Player and click the "Burn" button in the main window to enable the burning function of Windows Media Player. From the drop-down list, please tick "Audio CD" option if it is currently unchecked.

The most important step is to choose the cd burner. Then the software can convert the music files automatically. It is exceedingly easy when you want to batch convert lots of files.

Note: Under Windows Vista, Windows Media Player 11 may not able to choose the TuneClone's virtual CD burner.
