Question about iRiver PMP-120 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I just purchased a used PMP-120... can I play itunes .m4a files on it? When I copy them to PMP-120 they don't show up... but the *.mp3 files do. Maybe I did not do enough research... 2nd question: the firmware version is 2.04. Their website is less than helpful... where can I find out what the latest firmware version is? I got it for $80... hope it wasn't a mistake.

So, you got an M4a file and you would like to convert it into an mp3? Or are you maybe looking for a m4a to mp3 converter?<br /> First we need to understand what an m4a file really is, before you can convert m4a to mp3.

How to Remove DRM from iTunes M4P M4A AAC Music files


M4P M4A AAC are DRM license Protected music files downloaded or bought from iTunes music store, (DRM - Digital Rights Management is a term used to describe procedures which are taken to prevent unauthorized use of the media in question). And if you have music with DRM purchased from the iTunes store, you will not be able to play them on any other media player, other than Apple's players. Because Apple's DRM copyright protection, doesn't give you the rights to do so. This turns out really bad if you want to buy a new mp3 player which is not manufactured by Apple.

In this way we will describe an easy and fast way about how to remove DRM from iTunes music M4P M4A AAC files to play M4P M4A AAC music files on portable devices like Zune, PSP, Creative Zen, Sony Walkman, Cell Phone, Blackberry, HTC, etc without DRM protection.

Here we need a specific DRM Removal Software. I introduce you Wondershare Media Converter which will help you remove DRM from iTunes M4P M4A AAC music files easily.

Then, there are a few steps for you to follow now.

1. Look a the interface, click 'add' button, or double click within the 'Getting Started' area, explore the directory where your M4P, M4A, AAC music files are stored. Usually these files downloaded from iTunes are stored in *.\My Documents\My music\iTunes\iTunes Music\Downloads. If you want to add files in a batch, you can click the triangle besides the 'add' button.
2. Wondershare Media Converter contains multiple functions for customizing your output files. So the second step is to select your output formats. Just click 'Setting' button, audio for audio settings. If you want to edit them in Windows Movie Maker, I recommend you to select MP3 or WAV.
3. Well, you have almost done! The final step is to choose output directory. Please select a path which is easy to remember so you can find it. Then, just click 'Start' button. Enjoy it!

I have a base 4gb mp3 video player model pmp3080 i have copied and pasted songs from itunes to mp3 player they show up in brower not in music how can i get it to show up in music so i can listen to them?


well an ipod is not an mp3 player it plays m4a / m4v files. so basically it's not compatable. BUT you could make them compatable. all you need to do is convert them to the correct format (mp3). there are several ways to do this; software (almost never free) or my personal choice: media-convert.com. keep in mind it will take a while to do. what you do is upload the m4a file (one at a time) to the site and they do the conversion for you.

NOTE: it wont work if the music is encrypted (i.e.. purchased online and downloaded)

I hope the "NOTE:" didnt ruin it for you.
Best of luck to you!
