Playing iTunes protected music from a USB flash drive

Playing iTunes protected music from a USB flash drive

Although protected songs purchased from the Apple Store can be played with a bluetooth connection to your iPhone, if you copy those songs to a USB flash drive, they cannot be play in the Model S.

Here's the simple solution:

Burn your playlist to an audio CD. Then import that audio CD back into iTunes as a new play list or just let it overwrite your existing songs. The newly imported songs are no longer protected. They can now be copied to a USB flash drive and play through the car's music system.

Or just play the songs through the Bluetooth connection in your phone.

Actually you shouldn't even need to do that. You can now just delte the protected songs from your iTunes library and then redownload music purchases from the store. Since the store no longer uses DRM the new files will be protection free. As always, backup your files before deleting them but this is how I got rid of my protected music.
