Bringing your favorite tunes from Apple Music into the Dropbox realm holds immense benefits, offering you convenient access to your music library across various devices. However, moving your Apple Music or iTunes library to Dropbox poses challenges, primarily due to Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection and Apple Music's specific file formats. Unfortunately, Dropbox doesn't recognize the encoded M4P format, making it a bit tricky to seamlessly add these music files to the platform.

But fear not! We've got a solution that can effortlessly overcome these obstacles, rendering your Apple Music library compatible with Dropbox. By converting your Apple music library into supported formats like MP3, AAC, FLAC, M4A, WMA, or OGA, you can effortlessly upload them to Dropbox for safekeeping and easy access.

Step 1Import DRM M4P Music Files

Before diving into the conversion process, ensure that you have already imported or downloaded your DRM-protected M4P music files to your iTunes library. Once that's in order, you can effortlessly proceed by either dragging and dropping the files or using the "Add Files" menu within ViWizard.

Step 2Set Output Music File Format for Dropbox

Navigate to the Format option within ViWizard to tailor the output format and customize the audio quality according to your preferences. While Dropbox generally supports a wide range of file formats, not all may exhibit optimal compatibility with various devices and players. For a safe bet, consider selecting MP3, a universally recognized format compatible with virtually all devices. Within this step, you also have the flexibility to fine-tune additional parameters like channel, bit rate, and sample rate. Once satisfied with your selections, click the OK button to save the settings.
