Windows, iTunes, iPod, and Linux can coexist (part 4)

As I said earlier in this series, DRM music purchased from the iTunes Store is 128 kbps. Some of your DRM music purchased from the iTunes Store is probably upgradable to iTunes Plus. The two key features of iTunes Plus is that the music is DRM-Free, and it’s 256 kbps. New iTunes Plus music costs the same as iTunes DRM music, but you have to pay to upgrade your existing iTunes DRM music to iTunes Plus.

To do that, go to the iTunes Store, and click on the “iTunes Plus” link in the upper right hand side panel:

iTunes Plus in iTunes Store

iTunes Plus in iTunes Store

Then use the “Upgrade My Library” feature on the next page:

iTunes Store upgrade library to iTunes Plus

iTunes Store upgrade library to iTunes Plus
