iTunes Agent is a third-party software that will help you synchronize your mp3 player with iTunes. Go to this link and download and install the application. It is also necessary to download and install the latest version of Microsoft Framework. Next, erase all the data from your mp3 player and, after adding a device to your computer, right click on the iTunes Agent icon from the system tray, hit Preferences and New in order to create a new profile. After that, right-click on the iTunes Agent and select to synchronize devices.

iTunes music are DRM-protected, so you can't directly export music from iTunes to MP3 player. But you can convert the protected music to plain format like MP3. Then you can transfer the iTunes music to your MP3 player.

Step 1: Launch iTunes, click the menu bar “File” at the top of your computer screen or at the top of the iTunes window, then hover your cursor over “Library” in the dropdown menu, and select “Organize Library” from the secondary menu.

Step 2: Tick the box for “Consolidate Files” in the window that appears and click “OK”.

Step 3: Quit iTunes and connect your external hard drive to your computer using a USB cable.

Step 4: Find your iTunes folder. By default, your iTunes Media folder is in your iTunes folder:
Mac: Finder > username > Music
Windows Vista or later: \Users\username\Music\
Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\

Step 5: Transfer them to your MP3 player.

Currently, iTunes music are DRM-free, but Apple Music on iTunes are still DRM-protected. If you want to download Apple Music as mp3 files, please try Apple Music Converter. One of the most popular brand is named Sidify. You can visit its' official website:
