Can't convert .wma to MP3

Recommended Posts

Can't convert .wma to MP3 says "File is protected by DRM". Any ideas how to get by this? I thought this was the whole point of this software?

 

Thanks for your help!

The point of this software is not to circumvent copy protection, but rather offer an easy to use program for converting audio files types.

It has served me well performing the varied tasks I require of it; I however have little experience with .wma files.

If the file is protected by DRM, Switch will not convert the file. As stated on the NCH website (http://www.nch.com.au/switch/kb/1449.html):

 

Digital Rights Management, or DRM, is a class of technologies that allow rights owners to set and enforce terms by which people use their intellectual property.

Rights owners are typically copyright-holding companies like music, film, book or software publishers. They use DRM to control how documents, entire software programs, or even e-mails are used.

NCH Software does not support tampering with DRM Protected Files.

Tampering with such files is illegal.

I see. I upgraded my PC recently and now all my music I ripped with Windows Media Player won't work because of this DRM nonsense. Pain in the behind! Thanks for all your help though!
