Part 1. Can I Download Spotify Music to USB?

Why you can't transfer Spotify music to USB drive directly? The main reason that causes Spotify music hard to be synced to USB is the DRM protection inserted into the songs. All the music tracks from Spotify are restricted by the DRM technology and encoded in a special OGG Vorbis format. By doing this, those Spotify offline songs downloaded with a Premium subscription are only available during the subscription to Premium.

Moreover, those paid users also don't have the right to transfer Spotify music to USB stick. And not all popular devices are able to play Spotify songs. For example, some well-known MP3 players, such as iPod touch, Sony Walkman, and more are not supposed to play Spotify music directly. So does a USB flash drive. To put Spotify music on USB, the most important thing is to remove DRM from Spotify and convert Spotify music to DRM-free audio files. In the following part, we'll introduce a smart Spotify music downloader to help you solve the issue efficiently.
