Hi all,
I set up google play music last night so that I could get my music from iTunes on my mac onto my s6edge.

for some reason the app on my mac is only picking up 339 songs from iTunes but iTunes says it has 1334?

any advice will be much appreciated.

Digital Rights Management.



From Wikipedia: Prior to 2009, Apple's iTunes Store utilized the FairPlay DRM system for music. Apple did not license its DRM to other companies, so only Apple devices and Apple’s QuickTime media player could play iTunes music.[7][58] In May 2007, EMI tracks became available in iTunes Plus format at a higher price point. These tracks were higher quality (256 kbit/s) and DRM free. In October 2007, the cost of iTunes Plus tracks was lowered to US$0.99.[65] In April 2009, all iTunes music became available completely DRM-free. (Videos sold and rented through iTunes, as well as iOS Apps, however, were to continue using Apple's FairPlay DRM.)

Isn't there a way to eliminate those drm's? I thought apple offered to get rid of them for a fee?

I don't think drm's are my problem as not all my music was purchased on iTunes, a lot of my music was loaded onto my mac via third party usb's or hard drives? could it still be drm's?
