Default buying from iTunes

Do all iTunes albums come with DRM? I thought they came in MP3, but if not I'm not sure my player can handle AAC [or whatever iTunes format is called].

The last time I bought from iTunes was a while ago (I usually go with Amazon or, most often, still stick with the CDs), but when I did, it was an mp3. I remember being somewhat surprised as I'd figured they'd try to keep people corralled in to Apple products with the AAC format. But I suppose that would decrease their market share.

No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

You can always create an mp3 format of your music in iTunes (select song/s, Advanced|Create mp3 version) if you need to change format.

Hope this helps! Peace and all good.

Last time I checked, all song on iTunes are DRM-free 256kbps AAC.

You can convert songs in iTunes to MP3 by right-clicking on a song and selecting "create MP3 version" (I believe the settings are under Preferences->General->Import Settings).

If you want even more control/settings, Audacity is a great music-editing program that has MP3 import/export capabilities (and can also import the AAC formatted music).

Audacity's MP3 import/export capabilities are quite "Lame"

Well, I didn't want to get bogged down in details.
