Best and easiest solutions: recommended
[ul][li] Tunebite runs in the background on your Windows PC. When you play back a piece of music, Tunebite automatically re-records the song. According to the author of the software this is legal and foolproof. Leverages High Speed Digital Dubbing for turbo-speed recording and allows you to listen to other music while it’s doing its job.

If for some reasonTunebite fails, then there are some other options that are reported to work. One of them is an application similar to Tunebite, called MuveAudio, which is also able to remove the DRM from WMA files.
[ul][li] MuvAudio (click for download) is a .NET software application (Windows XP) for recording/converting the audio of most video/audio items that are playable by Windows Media Player. Including audio files protected with a DRM protection like the ones from Napster, MusicMatch and E-music.
Reported to work for some
- Backup music files from Napster/other companies that allow CD burning:
[li] Download the songs from Napster
[/li][li] Burn the songs to a CD e.g. using Nero
[/li][li] Rip the CD to MP3 e.g using Easy CDDA Creator
[/li][li] Convert to any format you like e.g. using again Easy CDDA Creator
- Another method using Virtuosa JukeBox (Does not seem to work anymore)
[li] Download songs.
[/li][li] Download Virtuosa.
[/li][li] Set Virtuosa WMA–>MP3 to128 Kbps, 44.1 kHz MP3 encoding.
[/li][li] Depending on your system you can encode 50-100 songs at a time.
This is lightyears ahead of the realtime/streaming recording to wav/mp3, and the output quality will be substantially better. If you try and encode at 192, it will not work. 160 occasionally works, but 128 is a LOCK.[/SIZE]
Does anyone know of a way to crack or burn protected WMA files? I have downloaded files off of the new napster site and they are protected.
I have searched on the internet and found older programs unfuck.exe and freeme.exe but both don’t seem to do the trick with the newer DRM protection that the napster files have.
The only real work around I’ve seen is to play the files while to record them to your harddrive, thus making a new file. You play all the protected songs one after another making one big new file then split the songs into new individual unprotected songs which then you can do what ever you want with.
There must be a easier and less lengthly way of doing this, has anyone know of a way?
