Question iTunes/BearShare Experts, I Need You.

OK. Here's my dilemma.

Limewire has stopped working for me, so I downloaded BearShare. I like it a lot better than Limewire, it is certainly much more organized. Here's the problem.

When I download a song on BearShare, I can listen to it. Same with Limewire. When I had Limewire, I would just drag the song from my Limewire library to my iTunes library, no problem. But when I try to do the same with BearShare, it says the following:

OK, so I click on "Convert" and this comes up:

iTunes can only convert unprotected WMA songs. If you have the original CDs for these songs, you can import them using iTunes.
Can someone tell me how to get it to the unprotected WMA format? I'm not very good at this computer lingo stuff, so any information would be greatly appreciated.

The simple answer is you can't. Protected songs use DRM protection and its virtually impossible to crack so don't waste your time.

Search for the song again, but make sure it is in MP3 format.

edit: apparently, their may be a way. I'd check this out:

Eh. I'll just find something else. Thanks, though. That stuff is way too complicated for me, though.
