MP3's on PPC using Windows Media Player
      #20472 - 07/07/05 05:39 AM

Having issues with MP3's using the Windows Media player.

Have purchased songs through MS and Napster. Properties for these confirm that the copy is legit and both services allow multiple copies of files etc.

When I sync the music on my PPC, it will place the music in "built in storage" without problems. I want to save space on my storage and move them to my SD card. I'll move the file and play using the windows media again, it will them bring up a "To play this protected file, you must download a license. do you want to connect to the internet?" message and does not allow me to play the file.

I've copied personal CD's to SD, CF, built in the past without problems

How can I move these files to a mem card without affecting the license feature of the MP3?

You might need to use Windows Media player on the desktop to put the files on the card (DRM info should then be put on the card).

Thanks for the suggestion, but I listed the SD as the default for downloading. The situation is the same as before.

So Media Player put the MP3s on the card but not the DRM file? Yikes.

It actually loads the MP3 on all media; Storage, SD and CF so I have three separate files.

The problem is song "A" will only play on Built-in for example, but not on SD and CF because of the license. Song "B" will play in SD, but not CF or Built-in and so on.

I would like to have all the songs in one area (SD) and delete the others. I'm trying to play by the rules, but this kind of problem makes it hard "not" to look for alternatives.

I see what you mean now. Yes it is a royal pain . Unfortunately, I don't know of a solution.

ah ha!! I stumped you!

I've checked other sites, and it's a problem others have had. They haven't a solution either.

I'll check back if I ever find a remedy.

Keep up the good work!

I think until Microsoft eases up on DRM (read never), they probably won't do anything about this.
