I just downloaded a free song off of iTunes thanks to Pepsi, only to find that I can't play it in Windows Media Player, where all of my other music files reside. Any way to get around this? If this sounds too much like it's encouraging piracy, sorry, I'll understand if the mods delete this thread, but piracy isn't my intention here, just convenience.

For copy protection reasons it can only play in iTunes. It makes a very good jukebox btw.

Hmm, I see why they would do that, but it still sucks for me. Stupid Pepsi should've made the deal with Napster instead. Oh well, Coke's better anyway. And no, I'm not ungrateful.Posted Image

You can download Itunes for Windows for free.

You can burn them to a CDRW and re encode them back as .MP3

Gui is right, works like a charm. And, yes, iTunes is very nice. I just wish it didn't hog as much of system resrouces as it does. I find that after awhile, when switching between tasks and what not, my mp3's "skip." Winamp never does this. Posted Image

I've decided I'm just going to save up enough until I can get Denis Leary's "No Cure For Cancer," the complete album. I've got six saved up so far I think. Spent the first one on "Clocks" by Coldplay. Thank goodness my dad consumes Diet Pepsi like most people consume oxygen, b/c Mountain Dew is the only Pepsi product I find even midly tolerable, and I only drink that at restaurants that don't serve coke anyway.

I wish they had this deal going in Canada I drink way too much Pepsi. Usually have a six pack of the bottles on my desk at work. I would totally be down with a couple free CD's to go with it.
