Losless conversion of iTunes DRM protected files?

okay... so i'm trying to slowly get rid of iTunes, but have a lot of songs purchased long ago that are DRM protected... such as the complete u2 collection...

any recommendations? i know i can do the burn and rip technique, but that will take forever.

I used to have a free DRM stripper when we used Ruckus...if I remember to pull out my old hard drive I can see if it's on there...

There used to be an app called Requiem that would strip the DRM off of iTunes audio and video. Don't know if it's still in development. The developers basically had to update it every time iTunes was updated, so they may have finally given up.

If you purchased The Complete U2, you can upgrade it to iTunes Plus. The upgrade isn't free, but it is DRM free and a higher bit rate.

The program I used to use with Ruckus is FairUse. Not sure if it's still around or if it works with Apple's DRM since I know it is different than *all* the others (go figure!).
