I’m not sure how, but I ran into an issue trying to burn a protected AAC (M4P) file from iTunes. [See the screenshot for the error]. After that error, there is no recreated file on my computer.
I don’t run into this while burning MP3s ripped from a CD that were imported into iTunes. These properly recreated MP3 files are what is shown in the iTurns Manager window.
iTunes has yet to encounter an error on its end, and is burning a physical CD of the same protected files just fine.
After switching to the Pro, choosing some different protected files, and restarting the program, it’s going swimmingly.
EDIT: I think I know what’s going on…the files I was trying to burn had some Unicode characters [Japanese], as the artist name. The Japanese characters (may not be visible to you, depending on what character sets your computer can display) are å®‰å®¤å¥ˆç¾Žæµ–Namie Amuro. The other files do not have Japanese/Unicode characters outside of the standard American English character set. The majority of users can probably get around this by avoiding the use of Unicode characters for the time being.
