How to transfer Rhapsody songs to iTunes
This guide will show you how to get rid of DRM protection from Rhapsody music files and transfer your Rhapsody songs to iTunes so that you can play those songs on your iPod or other portable devices.
I recently saw people posted question on the forum:"After you download music from Rhapsody, is it possible to transfer it into Apple iTunes and put it on your own iPod?"
If you buy songs from the Rhapsody store, then the answer to your question is YES, you can put them on iTunes. Rhapsody's digital music store can offer DRM-free MP3 tracks that could be played back on any number of digital players -- a list that, for the first time includes Apple's iPod.
When you use the subscription tracks from Rhapsody, the service you pay a bill every month for unrestricted listening and downloading to a compatible subscription portable devices, then the answer is NO, you can not put those songs in iTunes.
Music or songs from Rhapsody subscription come with DRM protection that prevents users from playing the downloaded songs with other incompatible products such as Apple iPod and Microsoft Zune. Which means you need to remove DRM before you can play your Rhapsody songs on your MP3 player. Here is a guide shows you how to do it step by step.
