Per my post below, I’m making the ultimate Christmas mix. After much debate, I decided that Band Aid’s “Do they know it’s Christmas” should make the cut. However, when I went to the iTunes music store, it was only available as part of an entire album for $18.99. Since I had many of the songs, and the rest were terrible, I searched google and found a UK site called 7digital which had it. However, after paying for it in pounds (I think it was around $1.25) and downloading it, iTunes would recognize or convert it, as it was in a protected WMA format and not whatever format iTunes uses. After doing a little research, I found that if I simply burned the song to a disc in Windows Media Player, iTunes would then import it.
The problem with this is that my CD burner has not worked since I “upgraded” to Vista. After about an hour, I was able to burn a disc and import it. Suddenly the $18.99 didn’t look like such a bad price. What a freakin’ hassle. In addition, I have no idea if 7digital is legit…it could be some Ukranian-based identity scam that just loaded up my computer with Trojans.
