How to transfer iTunes to Zune

This guide will show you how to transfer music or video files from iTunes to Zune in two different ways. The first one requires advance computer skills on burning songs to CD but it's free . The second is much simpler when you use a DRM Converter software program. Let's go to the details steps:

iTunes to Zune

For those who have changed from Apple's iPod to Microsoft's Zune, you usually have some tracks or TV shows that you bought from the iTunes Store. You will definitely want to transfer then to your new Zune media player. You'll meet a problem if you try to transfer your iTunes files directly to the Zune. Since music or videos that from iTunes Store come with DRM copy protection which prevents illegal sharing media files. So you need to remove the DRM protection and then convert to common MP3 music or MP4 video files.

1. Create a new playlist in your iTunes.
2. Add the tracks that you want to convert to the playlist (those music file size should NOT exceed a CD volume).
3. Click on Edit and choose Preferences.
4. Choose the Advanced tab.
5. Click on the radio button next to Audio CD on the Burning tab.
6. Simply click the Burn Disc button.
7. When the CD burning is finished, you could convert the tracks to MP3 with Windows Media Player.
8. Start the Zune computer software and synchronize the converted MP3 files to Zune player.

If you think the above way is little complicated for you , here we will also show you a simple way to do it. This way will allow you to convert DRM protected video as well.
