DRM stands for Digital Rights Management and is used to control or restrict the use of media tracks on electronic devices.

You will have to read the terms and conditions of the download and see what you are allowed to do with the tracks.

Some services allow no copying you can only listen on the computer you downloaded to , others allow a limited number of copies or delete the tracks after 6 months etc

You would need to check with Tesco to see what rights you have.

As the Tesco site says, once downloaded while still connected to the internet start the track playing and you will see a pop up window saying the license is being downloaded.

Once that is done you do not need to download the license again and can close the media player , if it asks if you wish to back up new licenses say yes.

I think your problem could be using Nero according to Tesco site their prefered player is
Windows Media Player which when you d/l any track or album a DRM licence is automatically d/l too

If you open WMPlayer go2 View > Online Stores > Tesco then on the right hand side click Jargon Buster.

Looks like Nero was the problem, I played the tracks in media player then made a playlist and burned it. My only concern is the album cost £7.99 to d/l Tesco sell the original cd for £7.99 so what is the advantage i have to print covers and the cd, doesnt seem to be an incentive to buy this way. The only rerason I did was because I wanted it now and it was out of stock at tesco.
