Hi Juliette,

If an iTunes song is using AAC with DRM (I presume that is what you
mean by encrypted) then it will normally have the suffix .m4p ('p' for
protected?). If it is regular, non-DRM AAC, then it will be .m4a. I
think that some podcasts from iTunes also come in good ol' .mp3
format, too. I do have a few iTunes+ songs in my library but they're
virtually impossible to identify within iTunes once you've downloaded
them as far as I can tell.

Rgds,

Guy
