I have just bought an audio book from iTunes and just realised that its not compatible with my samsung s6 (I thought it would be easy to convert) I have tried several programs but it fails due to a protection of the file.

Does anyone know how I can get round this.

The book was David Millar the racer.

Thanks in advance.

    Tried it and failed.

    Annoying as it means I have to listen to it in the house on macbook instead of on the bus or at work. Serves me right for using iTunes.

    the surefire option is to use an audio recording application, play it out the headphone jack and back in through the microphone port (assuming it has one, otherwise you can use the one on your s6), you may need to add an attenuator to get the signal level right, downside it that it's a real-time process

    once you've got an mp3 you can trim it, convert to other formats etc.

    Found this on an apple support forum, you'll probably have to expand the answers to see the part quoted
    You don't need any extra software to do this; select it in iTunes then in the advance menu, there a convert option. Keep in mind that converting from one codec to another one will reduce the audio quality.
