In February I purchased a 2 hour long audio file from itunes. I recently discovered that I am unable to play the file from a disk I burned on my iMac G5. When I get info on the file it says "Protected AAC Audio File". When I attempt to create an MP3 version I get a box that says: could not be converted because protected files cannot be converted to other formats. I am using v10.2.1. When I originally looked at the information the file said m4p. This is nuts. Anyone have an idea how I can contact Apple about this situation or maybe have a fix? TIA
QUOTE Thanks
