TuneClone uses a virtual CD burning technology to simulate the burning and ripping process and can convert M4P files to MP3 without any CD-R disc and do this work quickly. TuneClone installs a virtual CD-RW, it helps you burn any unprotected or DRM protected M4P, M4a, WMA music files onto the virtual CD, rips tracks on the virtual CD, encodes tracks onto MP3, WAV or WMA music files. It can repeat this audio converting procedure until your whole music collection is done.
Since the virtual CD emulates your computer RAM and hard disk as erasable CD-RW drive (Virtual CD-RW), the converting speed is faster than any other m4p to mp3 conversion programs.
This guide also applys to RedHat, CentOS, FreeBSD, Ubuntu Linux etc.
More About Linux OS
Linux is the name usually given to any Unix-like computer operating system that uses the Linux kernel. Linux is one of the most prominent examples of free software and open source development: typically all underlying source code can be freely modified, used, and redistributed by anyone.
The name "Linux" comes from the Linux kernel, started in 1991 by Linus Torvalds. The system's utilities and libraries usually come from the GNU operating system, announced in 1983 by Richard Stallman. The GNU contribution is the basis for the alternative name GNU/Linux.
Predominantly known for its use in servers, Linux is supported by corporations such as Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Novell, Oracle Corporation, Red Hat, and Sun Microsystems. It is used as an operating system for a wide variety of computer hardware, including desktop computers, supercomputers,and embedded devices such as E-book readers, video game systems (PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and XBox), mobile phones and routers.
"I just wanted to send an email to let you know how great this product is. I had an iPod shuffle that shorted out, and when searching for a new MP3 player, I liked other players much better than those sold by Apple. But I was upset to discover that none of the 100 plus songs I had in my iTunes library could be downloaded to any other MP3 player but an iPod. It made me angry to realize that songs I PAID for (not stole) were useless to me unless I purchased an Apple product, which I was loathe to after finding out about this. Finding your product saved me, and my music. Now I can buy the MP3 player I want and not lose any of the songs I have bought. Thanks so much!" -- Tiffany

"I've been waiting a long time to 'free my iTunes' to use on my Walkman mobile phone, and the only way I could do it before was to burn to CD then rip back again. A very lengthy process, which normally ended up full of faults and a lot of wasted disks!! Not any more!!" -- David
