"Can I transfer MediaMax digital audio files to my iPod? Originally posted by aegisdesignYeah, look at the "I'm a dumbass" explanation that Suncomm, the people who supply the copy protection placed on their website claiming Apple are the bad guys...
It even provides a link you can click on to implore Apple to support Suncomm's DRM. ie. They want Apple to support Windows Media 10 'Janus' DRM......
Apple's proprietary technology doesn't support secure music formats other than their own, and therefore the secure music file formats on this disc can't be directly imported into iTunes or iPods.
While these discs aren't currently compatible with iTunes or iPod, we are actively working on an acceptable solution, and have reached out to Apple in hopes of addressing this issue. To help speed this effort, we ask that you use the following link to contact Apple and ask them to provide a solution that would easily allow you to move content from protected CDs into iTunes or onto your iPod: http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipod.html
Even though there is no direct support on the disc for iTunes or iPod, SONY BMG has worked out a way for consumers to move content into these environments, despite the challenges noted above. If you'd like more information on how to move content to iTunes please CLICK HERE."
Okay, so Apple's "proprietary technology" (ripping standard audio cds to non-drm'ed open codec such as AAC)
doesn't support secure music formats (such as suncomms piece of shit)
and therefore the secure music file formats can't be directly imported.... etc.
Okay, so SONY BMG has come to the rescue and "worked out a way to move content, despite the challenges noted above (caused by suncomm and SONY BMG and microsoft not APPLE) "......and have reached out to Apple in hopes of addressing this issue. To help speed this effort, we ask that you use the following link to contact Apple and ask them to provide a solution that would easily allow you to move content from protected CDs into iTunes or onto your iPod"
the poor recording music industry... oh dear... oh they have 'reached out' to the evil iPod corporate dark empire of apple."[ask apple to provide].... a solution that would easily allow you to move content from protected CDs into iTunes or onto your iPod"
