Default media player and DRM WMA files

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if any of the media players out there, support playing WMA files that are DRM protected?? I am on a 8300 on 4.5. I have a bunch of file from bearshare and want to play them but the default player does not support DRM protected WMA files.

None that I know of. You need to strip out the DRM. I know with iTunes you can burn them to a CD and then rip them back into iTunes. Not sure about your wma files.

Default WMA DRM files

Yes, burning the WMA files to a CROM and then importing them back to Windows Media Player will remove the DRM and the files will play anywhere.
