Can't play my music

  nerawan 10:32 15 Dec 2005

A few months ago I recorded all my CDs using WMP 10. It looks I didn't pay much attention to the settings . Now I have a new PC . I want to play my music that was compressed in wma but every time it tries to open IE to get a license. At the moment don't have internet at home. Is there any way to listen to my music without getting this annnoying license?. Thanks

The only way to get them to play is to convert your music files into a non-protected format such as MP3 - I find Audio Conversion Wizard to be best for this (a demo version is available for download if you want to try it out).

If you go into the Windows Media Player settings you can untick the box which automatically protects all your copied music so that you don't get this problem with future redordings.

Sorry - just noticed you don't have internet on your afflicted machine. You may be able to find a music converter program on one of the PC Advisor cover disks but some programs won't do protected WMA files which is why I recommended Audio Conversion Wizard (it was the only program I could find which would actually do this type).

It may be a pain, but you could rip the music again into .mp3 format using click here

Freerip is an excellent piece of kit with the ability to set rip kbps.
