Is there a way to remove the Protected Content of a .wma file?

  1. I did a major booboo, I burned alot of cd's to .wma files in windows 9 and forgot to uncheck the "protect copy" in preferences in windows media player and all the .wma files that I want to transfer to an mp3 player won't play because of the Copy to a SDMI-complaint portable player not allowed is active.
    Is there a way to remove this license from the file?

    if it was 8 or earlier you'd be in luck

    past knowledge pointed that an connection to internet will get you listening again

    but wmp9 owns you

    mp3 has no copy protection and is why it is being criminal to download mp3 music

    if you went with media player you have to send an email for help with your music collection and media player 9 to micro$oft

    let us know how you do

    i think this can be used to convert WMA to MP3 format....therefore removing copy protection. Please note the I THINK part of this sentence!

    I used it on a protected music file once and it worked a treat.
