Having just taken my first foray into downloading music with iTunes I was wondering if it is possible to play the files in Media player as I listen to all my music with Media Player.
Thanks
Ian

The problem you may have is that iTunes downloads are in the AAC format(m4p)which is not supported by WMP and they have DRM protection.

You will need to convert the somgs to mp3 to get them to play on WMP. One way is to get a CD (I use a CDRW) and use iTunes to burn the songs as a Audio Disc.

In WMP you can then rip the audio disc to mp3.

if your using wmp 10 you can listen to itunes music (unless i had a plugin installed) but if you go to the libary and add the folder then click on other mediia i found that the songs worked.
