My wife bought me an iTunes gift card for Christmas and I downloaded some musicthat works great on my home computer. The problem is I keep music on a 4 gig jump drive that I can plug into the CD player in my truck and it will not play in my truck. It is just the songs I bought not the CDs I downloaded. On my work computer I had to authorize the use of the song to be played on it. I am sure that is why it wont play in the truck. Anyone know a way around that?

I have a 2 gig iPod but I don't like leaving it in my truck. It is concealed but a jump drive is alot smaller and less likely to get stolen I think (Plus a 4gig jump frive is only $35)

I would guess it's a format issue. Are you able to use this jump drive for other music without problems? If so burn the selected songs to a cd then transfer them from that to the jump drive.

That should work iTunes uses some copy right software that makes simple things more difficult than they should be.

Don't forget, iTunes songs are not mp3, but mp4. They won't load and play on an mp3 player.

Its not the MP4 format that is screwing it up because all the CDs I ripped to iTunes work just find. It's something else keeping it from working in my truck. I am just not buying music from iTunes anymore.

Dont use Itunes! Its encrypted. I cant stand them! If your into Ipod then use ANAPOD or convert with many of the conversion programs available.

Anapod bypasses the encryption. Itunes is a total ripoff program.

Itunes uses DRM (Digital Rights Management) on most of their songs/albums. This restricts the user from burning too many cd's and sharing the digital files with others. You can read more about it DRM here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights_management.

Amazon.com just launched an MP3 store (http://www.amazon.com/mp3) where all its music is DRM free and you're actually downloading MP3 files that play on anything that supports music files. Check it out, all 4 of the major studios are on board.
