Q: Why Use M4A to MP3 converter?
A: When you purchase music from iTunes Store, they are actually DRM protected content (protected AAC or say M4P) and you will not be able to play the protected AAC (M4P) files on MP3 players which do not support their formats. In such case, the option is to Burn those tracks to a CD and then Rip them once again to the computer hard drive wherein the DRM will be removed and you will get the tracks in (DRM free) MP3 format. After this you will be able to transfer them to a memory card or to most MP3 players.
In case you have purchased a great amount of music from iTunes Store, you can go ahead and use M4A to MP3 Converter which acts as a Virtual CD-ROM drive on your PC, and lets you remove the DRM element without having to waste actual CD's.
