If you have purchased a SanDisk Sansa and want to transfer the music tracks purchased from iTunes Store to your new player, you will be faced with the DRM issue.
The music you purchased from iTunes Store is protected by DRM, which prohibits you from playing beyond the Apple environment. That is to say, you can only play iTunes music on Apple devices, such as iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, etc. However, in order to play iTunes music on SanDisk Sansa, you can turn to a DRM removal tool to help you remove DRM from iTunes music and convert iTunes music to MP3 files.
Therefore, in this post, I’d like to show you how to convert iTunes music to MP3 files using TuneClone for Mac, so that you can transfer iTunes music to SanDisk Sansa.
Step 2. Make burn settings in iTunes
Create a new playlist and add the songs you are going to convert.
Right click the playlist you just created and choose “Burn Playlist to Disc”. Or you can click the “Burn Disc” button at the bottom right corner of iTunes interface.
In the pop-up dialog of “Burn Settings”, you can make settings as highlighted below:
Note: You need to tick the “Include CD Text” option to perserve the music metadata such as name, artist, album names.
Step 3. Start to burn
Click the “Burn” button to start burning. After the burning get started, TuneClone will automatically convert the iTunes music to MP3 files. You can open the TuneClone manager screen to check out the burning status.
Tip: You can easily get the output MP3 files on your Mac machine by clicking the “Reveal in Finder” button on the manager screen.
Note: The most important step is to choose the CD burner. Then the software can convert music files automatically. It is especially easy when you want to batch convert lots of files.
When you locate the output MP3 files, you will be able to transfer them to your SanDisk Sansa.
