Soft convert DRM to Mp3
Hello everybody, I'm looking for a soft to convert file .wma that is protected by DRM to mp3.
What is software?

Yes it can be done. Use
Damn it sounds like I am advertising :)
The f***** DRM will always be "broken"

That's a pretty lame method.. It's just highjacking the audio and re-recording it on the fly. That can be done without buying some lame program.

It causes a loss in quality and it also takes forever.. as the whole song has to play through for you to record it.. So if you have a full album to convert you're gonna have to wait an hour or so just to get it "unprotected".

Another note.. You have to have been the PURCHASER of the original DRM protected wma.. You can't get one from a friend and use tunebite because the file won't play on your computer to begin with. You have to have the DRM license for that particular wma which you won't get unless you payed for and downloaded that song personally on that particular PC.. So for anyone that is sharing DRM protected songs on P2Ps its completely pointless.

Of course it can be done so many ways without buying a program. But to use such a program is easier then to do a lot of operations. You can start Tunebite, let it run in the background, load all the files you want to convert in Windows Media Player and let it do his job. You can go to work or to sleep and it works for you. It needs to do the conversion real-time to keep it's legality, because this way it doesn't harm the DRM protection in any way.
And there is almost no quality loss, cause all this conversion is made inside a codec on the sound card, there are no wires included in this process :p
Of course you need to be the purchaser of the protected file, it would be at least stupid IMO to share protected files.

I use SOUNDTAXI and it will help you too! It's easy, fast and breaks DRM-protection successfully. You may learn about it from here:

Yeah, it works great with Yahoo and Napster :D Works fast - to convert 300 WMA files into MP3 files it took less than 1 hour - that's 12x speed!

Normally, you can burn the protected music files to CD-R/RW disc. then rip them back to MP3.

There is a software "NoteBurner" from can help to convert protected music to MP3 File by using a virtual CD-RW burning method. It works as a virtual CD-RW burner, after selecting "NoteBurner" as default CD burner, then the software will convert all the music files in playlist easily.

This seems like a AD, however, I use this tool and it did work.

old winamp very rare
there is a very old and rare version of winamp that could play .wma and use a plugin that would output to .wav instead of your directsound driver. when microsoft found out, they made nullsoft disable wavout plugin while wma is playing in a newer version of winamp. so winamp was at one point the fastest way to rip wma to wav. like 15 sec for a 3min song or better depends on the computer. not sure what version it was. most people don't archive old free winamp versions cause they didn't need to. by the time it hit the blogs it was already long gone from but mabey someone somewhere has it.
