I would add,that if the link turns out to be true
you may have to copy all the music again without protection.

Thanks for your reply ACOLYTE, well i did not want to hear that as it took a very long time to do,if i had known that a little tick could cause so much wasted time i would have left it alone,when i bought the archos from QVS the shopping chanel they said on air that archos had syned up to music & viedo body to allow you to play it throw the archos 500, if i deleted the liecence fom windows would that not do the trick.

No deleting the liscence in Windows will juat stop windows from playing it as well.

Thanks Andysd,there must be a way around this problem,reloading all my music will take a very long time.

Yep it says you can use them, try their Tech Support click here I cant seem to find an answer in their site though.

Is there a driver or plugin for Windows Media eiter in a folder on the player or on a cd that came with it?

  LANDCRUISER 13:22 06 Nov 2005

I have already look into their site the only thing i found is that they say to have player 10 but looking further they mention downloading player 10 from musicforsure ido not know if this is different to windows version

I dont know if this will help i had a quick read and this allows you to copy protected music to upto 10 other pc's,but i didnt read all the page there may be limitations.
