Is there a reason why the Yamaha Chord Tracker App does not read any of the songs on my phone? all of them show: "This Data cannot be selected"?

What is the point of the app if I cannot use it?

I have several CD's I have ripped for which I get the same message when I try to open them in Chord Tracker. The vast majority of the CD tunes I have ripped work just fine, but these are some that are fairly obscure (by a long-disbanded group called Uncle Walt's Band). I have had a few (less than 10 out of several thousand) that I bought through iTunes which don't work either. My understanding is that iTunes does not use DRM.

I'm at a loss to explain this then. I will have to ask - I've never had an issue with it not being able to access any music. I will look into it and report what I find.

Hello again. Thanks for your answer
I have about 200 cd´s from my early years. They are all ripping into iTunes.
not one, of them can be used in chord tracker. its all them same text.
This data cannot be selected. I have contact to apple, they said, contact yamaha.

Same answer. You must own the downloaded songs.

That is not an error message found in the app, I will assume a typo. I can’t give you an answer either because you gave us no details about the song or where you purchased it. If you have some subscription to a music service then I highly recommend you read the license agreement (I’m not a lawyer, but I’ve certainly purchased the thousands of titles on my iPhone and have not found even one that is not convertible, not yet, I certainly haven’t tried them all.)

My guess is you have purchased a subscription that allows you to “listen” to music...
you don’t have to share where you got them if you don’t want to but that maybe the reason. I’ve personally never run into a DRM Song... I’ll try to find out when that warning actually appears...

do you own any CDs... try transferring (ripping) them to your i-Device... see if they work. Let us know.

I have the same problem. All of my songs I have bought, is showing “This data Cannon be selected”
I can’t find out, what is wrong. I had even spoken to Yamaha, without any solution.

If they are songs you have purchased they can be converted using Chord Tracker

From the ChordTracker documentation:

"Songs protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) cannot be used in this application."

Are the songs protected by DRM?
