What's new in this version:
Version 2.0 makes the soft compatible with 64-bit Windows.
Easy to use, integrates with iTunes, appears to work simply and flawlessly.
Until you notice that all of the tracks you converted are messed up. Each album's tracks get fixed at a certain length. The shorter ones have blank space appended, the longer ones get truncated. So all the files are unusable. Emails to their support go unreturned, their Facebook and Twitter pages appear to be untouched for several years. Consider the software unsupported, to go along with broken. I'm out $35 for nothing.
Don't buy it, just go get the Aimersoft DRM remover program, which appears to work as advertised.
Does not work. I work in IT and I have tried several tricks to get the software to work unfortunately these do not work. Itunes just burns the disk and ejects the CD Tuneclone does nothing. iTunes have wised up to the issue that DRM is good business and incorporated DRM removal into a product they sell hence why this software does not work. Support do not answer e-mails I have sent 5 and none have been answered.
I tried free and then paid version for TuneClone. This creates a vertial drive on your PC. That means you can burn CDs on this drive. This essentially tricks iTunes so files can be converted and exported to single location ie. your drive. The drive storage is folder of your choice. You can specify file format and also how the filename is created eg. title-album-artist Then you can put your entire library on a playlist and burn it to CD. The CD drive is the virtual drive that you created. When iTunes is burning it to drive, a TuneClone popup comes up that will encode your media where and how you have specified. Encoding is decent speed - for a 30 min song it takes about 3-4 min on a i7/6GB machine.
ISSUES: 1. iTune creates multiple files for larger music files (I think 70+ min) TuneClone also simply convert them .. that means you are splitting your media while exporting while it is one single file in iTunes. 2. It does not have any solution for video files 3. The cost is $40+ because it forces you to buy backup service. 4. The documentation is poor. It took me a while to figure out how it works 5. Free version is useless because it builds only 3 min of song.
I was trying to solve this issue - Export my entire iTunes library in some open format like mp3 and put it in cloud where multiple devices and players can excess it. I am not sure why apple has made this simple and useful task so hard. Yes, iTunes can convert your files in mp3 even the one that you purchased. The problem is that it creates duplicates in iTunes. You can sort it out based on creation date and delete it, but how to export it? iTunes displays the media differently than it stores on windows PC. So if there are thousands of converted files placed in different folders, how can you export it? There are some iTunes scripts available that say that it can convert the file and add it to destination but they did not work for me. I heard good things about 'dougscripts' but I am not a mac person. Some other VB scripts did not work for me. There are some software like Media Monkey that can manage/convert/handle your media overall but I don't know if they can do what I wanted to do easily. If your iOS device is fully synced, you can also use copypod to get the media at one location then use some kinda mass media conversion program (I had used cyberlink and creative before that came with the PC). Agreed that it is an innovative solution but this cost is a rip-off considering what it does. I am sure there are some other options available.
Bonehead simple to use; great "work-around" to save a great deal of time, effort, and expense in NOT having to burn multiple CD-ROMS.
Nowhere on the TuneClone site or within the product itself does it warn you that the TRIAL version is essentially useless for any song greater than three minutes. Use the TRIAL version just as a testbed to see if the program works; don't try to batch-convert your entire collection in the TRIAL program, or you will end up cursing the deficiencies and having to re-do everything. Album art does not seem to transfer; at least for me it didn't come across. TuneClone site FORCES you to pay an extra $5 for a "registration back-up service" that I didn't want, but there was no option to kill it off; ergo the actual price is about $40.
Like most people (I suspect), I opted to give the TRIAL version a whirl instead of spending $35 for the program, but after installing the trial program and making it about half-way through the batch conversion, I finally read on some other web resource that the trial program literally only converts the first 3 minutes of any song. Annoyingly, you can't then "unlock" the remaining part of the song by upgrading; you have to redo the entire batch conversion. That's annoying, and if that information had been better conveyed on the TuneClone site itself (or here), it would have been appreciated. In my case, having already spent a good hour on a wasted batch conversion, I just felt compelled to plop down $35 to finish things up. THE GOOD--> The program is really easy to use, has great step-by-step processes on the TuneClone site, and it does work great (other than album art, but that is something I can live without).
