How to import iTunes music into windows movie maker without CD



Question: Hello, I met problem about transferring music found on this hard disk to my windows movie maker. This music comes from iTunes; I transferred by USB to my hard disk because it came from another computer. How I can import this music onto windows movie maker for editing

Answer: If you meet the same problem too, You find the right place! Please read this simple guide to learn how to convert the iTunes music to unprotected MP3 files then you can import the purchased music files into your Windows Movie Maker project.


Something about Windows Movie Maker:Windows Movie Maker is a practical and easy-to-use tool to make movies in. It is integrated software across all operating systems of Windows that allows you to create, edit and share video clips on the web, email or CD / DVD.

Below are the audio/video formats accepted by Windows Movie Maker:

Video files: .asf, .avi, .wmv
Movie files: MPEG1, .mpeg, .mpg, .mlv, .mp2
Audio files: .wav, .snd, .au, .aif, .aifc, .aiff
Windows media files: .asf, .wm, .wma, .wmv
MP3 format audio: .mp3

The m4p music files you purchased from iTunes store are under DRM protection. You cannot directly import them to your Windows Movie Maker project. However, you can burn the protected music files to CD-R or CD-RW disc to make an audio CD and then use some CD ripper software to convert the audio CD track back to MP3, WAV, WMA, etc. And iTunes allows you to burn the protected music files to CD-R or CD-RW disc to make a standard audio CD; except this method, there is another easier way, you could strip this DRM copy protection by some removal software to unprotect you iTunes movie. So in this article I will introduce you a quick and easy way to remove DRM License protection from iTunes music files (.M4P) and convert it to unprotected MP3, WAV format and then you can import it into windows movie maker as background music.

Here is the step by step tutorial for the program:

1 Free download Wondershare media Converter install and run it.
2 when come to the main interface, you can directly drag-drop target media file to the conversion window, or click the 'Add' button to import the target files.
3 Choose the format you'd like to get. There is a list of output formats. If you want to edit them in Windows Movie Maker, I recommend you to select MP3 or WAV.
4 And then click the start button, and the DRM removing process is beginning. After a while, the files are DRM-ripped. You can view your converted files by press the browse button.
5 After conversion, now we can import the converted songs into windows movie maker. Open Windows Movie Maker. Clicking "File" then "Open Project," or start a new one by clicking "New Project" found under the file menu.
6 Click "Import Media" on the top tool bar. Browse for your file and click "Import
7 Click "Story Board" and change it to "Time Line." The "Story Board" button is on the bottom left-hand side of the program. Audio can only be added when the format of Windows Movie Maker is in Time Line. This is how your video is arranged.
8 Drag your song into the Time Line. Play back the song in the preview window to see how it sounds.
