This is DRM bypassing, which is therefore illegal, which means I cannot continue this conversation.

garb, PM me...

Loopback recording.. What'* so hard to understand? Runa a spiltter from your Audi Out, one half can still got to the speakers, other half goes to Line In, or Microphone (won't sound as good, but will work). Then, record the Line In/Mic....

It'* be easier to find a software converter, but the loopback plan would work in a pinch...

Loopback = bad SQ, especially in a computer environment.

There are converters out there.

Yeah, but if it had to get done right this second....

There'* also software out there that will record anything playing on your computer. Again, probably some loss in quality, but better than nothing if you're in a hurry
