Transfer iTunes music to Galaxy Tab

As you know, the music tracks purchased from iTunes store are protected by DRM. You can only play them on Apple iPod, iPad and iPhone and are limited to play on five Apple devices only. So if you want to play iTunes music with your Galaxy Tab, you need to remove iTunes DRM and convert iTunes music to (DRM free) audio files first.

The easiest way is to burn the music to an audio CD in iTunes and then rip it back as mp3 files.

Or you just get TuneClone to help you, which works great for converting a great number of music tracks, needs no CD discs and preserves the ID3 tags well. Here is the full step-by-step guide:
