This software seems to be misunderstood, unfairly judged, or both.
I'm not rating this software based on what I wish it did or what think it should do. I'm rating it based on what it does compared to what I was promised, and whether it did it well or not.
Quite simply: It does what it says it does, is easy to use (just follow the included instructions,) and for me it did it without any stability issues. I am not too keen on the pricing or licensing terms, but that is only 1/4 of the review equation.
If you want to be able to create a virtual cd of DRM protected music, here is what you do:
Per the included instructions:
1. Install the app.
2. Restart your computer.
3. Select "New Media" from the menu bar icon.
A new, blank virtual cd will now be mounted and visible on your desktop or in the finder sidebar.
Next make sure iTunes is properly set up:
1. Open iTunes and go to Preferences
2. Under the General tab, click the "Import Settings..." button. Make sure to set format to MP3 if you want to be able to burn MP3 data discs.
3. Close preferences.
4. Add the DRM protected songs you want to burn to the virtual cd to a playlist just as you would to burn to a regular music cd.
5. Right click the playlist, select "Burn Playlist to Disc."
6. In the dialog box, select "Virtual CD RW" as the Disc Burner dropdown menu. Make sure Audio CD is selected below. Click Burn.
It will take all of 10 seconds in most cases to create the virtual music CD. When it is one, you'll see your new virtual music cd show up under "Devices" in your iTunes sidebar.
Right click it, select "Import CD."
Done. My music is now DRM free.
It literally took me less than 3 minutes and I encountered no problems.
Apologies for any typos or grammatical errors. I'm writing this quickly.
