"best little program I have seen in 20 years"

September 30, 2008  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: DRM Dumpster 3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Darn if it didn't work as advertised. The only problem I ran into was not realizing that I would not be able to find my one and only cd-rw. The surprise of the the day was that both songs had the drm removed and were sitting there in itunes just waiting to be put onto a cd-r for play in my own car.

I cannot see how the program could be easier, or how the instructions could be easier. Unless it breaks down in a month I would say that this is the absolute in drm removal programs and if other types of programs made the instructions this simple there would be no bad reviews about any type of program.

This software does what it says...once you get the many computer and iTunes settings correct. Save yourself a lot of trouble - read AND follow the instructions! The developer was responsive with my minor issue. Thanks!

"DRM Dumpster Well Worth The Price"

September 08, 2007  |  By Slor

 |  Version: DRM Dumpster 2.1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a fantastic application which does EXACTLY what it claims to do. It easily removes DRM from your purchased songs. It automates the process you would normally be required to do by hand. I had slightly over 1200 purchased songs and I was dreading the process of slowly exporting and reimporting I would need to go through in order to unprotect them. DRM Dumpster completely automates this process.

"Why?"

December 18, 2006  |  By golgi_body

 |  Version: DRM Dumpster 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'm not sure what the point of this program is. This program does the same exact thing that any user can do themselves: Burn your 'Purchased' playlist to audio cds. I think the UI violates at least a dozen Apple User Interface Guidlines.

"It just works."

December 17, 2006  |  By mr.mcgoo1

 |  Version: DRM Dumpster 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
After installing DRM Dumpster, on running it first time I got prominent screens telling me how it achieved it's goal and why it must use a CD-RW.
It also told me clearly it needed a setting in the Universal Access turned on and helpfully launched the Universal Access screen so I could make that change.
It highlighted the fact that it couldn't run automatically on some machines but clearly instructed the user on how to deal with it.

That done I hit Burn button and it just worked!

It does have prominent requests for donation's but as it's freeware, they have every right to do so. And the requests do not hinder the use of the product at all.

I've given support and documentation full marks mainly because I didn't need to use the documentation because the prompt screens while using it are so good.
And I've seen from this forum that the developer is actively encouraging contact with him so he may better support the product.

THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE UTILITY!

"Idiotic nonsense!"

December 16, 2006  |  By binosama

 |  Version: DRM Dumpster 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

Either this is a tool to un-drm music, then it can do it without *censored*ing iTunes or old-fashioned, small, slow and buggy CD-RW, since it un-drms either the original files or creates a clean copy.

  Or it is a cheating POS whose developer should be gelt.

 

Check what sick begging and nagging it uses and what of the mentioned tools it needs - then guess which kind of tool it is!
