Burning Songs onto a CD from Amazon Music – Step-by-Step Guide
In today’s digital age, streaming music has become the norm with the rise of giants such as Apple Music, Amazon Prime Music, and Spotify.
Amazon Prime Music is unique among these because they offer two different types of services.
The first is a traditional music streaming service similar to Spotify while the second is an online music store.
Not only can you listen to millions of songs using Amazon Prime Music but you can also purchase your favorite albums and songs to listen to on the go.
CDs can be a great option for holding onto your favorite music.
So, how do you fill up a CD? Follow the simple steps given below:
Downloading Songs from Amazon Music
Amazon’s online music store is a host to millions of songs and albums that you can purchase and subsequently download to your computer.
The best part about this music is the fact that it’s DRM-free and encoded in high-quality 256-kbps MP3 format.
This not only makes them pleasurable to listen to but the fact that they’re DRM-free means that you can easily burn them onto a CD.
Hence, in order to download songs from Amazon’s online music store, all you have to do is purchase the songs (and/or albums) you like and then download them to your computer.
The problem arises with Amazon Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited. With these services, the songs are not DRM-free (Digital Rights Management).
This prevents you from making unauthorized copies of the purchased songs and thus, prevents you from burning Amazon Prime Music and Music Unlimited songs onto a blank CD.
Luckily, it’s not impossible to crack DRM protection from Amazon as you can easily do this using Tunelf Amatune Music Converter.
