Ok so I bought some Tour Tracks, I'm In Love With My Car & Love Of My Life to be ore specific & was pleased with the quality etc. however when I went to convert the shitty little .wma to .mp3 so I could add it to my iTunes library & iPod. I can't. What's up with that I paid fair & square.

Just record it into a .wav file file it's playing and then convert that to mp3 then.

It's the digital rights management built into the wma files. There are several ways aronud it. Copy them to a cd, and then rip them back onto the computer as an mp3. Or do the same using a compact flash card if you have one of those. There's also a long thread on qol about it.

if you copy it to CD, and then rip it back to your PC via Media Player as an mp3 etc does that void the "can only burn three times" option?

it's great that we can download these, be it for 99p, but it shite that we can't actually really do anything with them.
