Free Yourself from DRM with iTunes Plus

So you bought a butt load of music off iTunes in the old DRM 128-bit AAC format. Now that iTunes is selling DRM-free 256-bit AAC music what do you do with those old crappy DRM’d files? Well the good news is that you can upgrade them. The bad news is that it will cost you $0.30 $0.40 / track. But if you still want to do it, here’s how.

  1. Make sure that you have iTunes Plus enabled for your iTunes account. You can do this from your Account Settings page in iTunes.
  2. Now go to the iTunes Plus section in the iTunes Music Store. You’ll in the top left corner you will see a box with the words Upgrade My Library. In that box it will tell you how much it will cost to upgrade your library.Upgrading iTunes Plus
