    Hello. I am very close to purchasing an Asus Transformer tablet, but one thing is keeping me from pulling the trigger: will all of my media play on it? Most of my movies/TV/music are all Apple protected; either .m4a for music, or .m4v for videos. I am mainly getting the Transformer for media, so can I get these to play on the TF101? I'm fine with conversion, I just need to be sure I'm not wasting my money.

    If there is, what is the easiest way? I've been looking at doubleTwist, and it seems very promising, but I'd like to hear from someone that they are sure I'll be fine. Thank you.

    I'm not the most knowledgeable on this topic. I'm having trouble getting my TF to work with those file types. I put some music on the microSD card but the music apps I have won't recognize the music files. I have tried Doubletwist on my Android phone and desktop but in my opinion it didn't work very well. I hope others have some good ideas for the both of us.

    One thing my parents ran into from apple is all of the video has drm and its preventing the other tablets from playing it. Normal mp4 and m4v is fine though.
