Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

High pitched noise with specific file formats (WMV and WMA)

Hi there,

This issue is ongoing for almost coupla years now and I have searched for a fix at many places.

I'll get straight to the problem, whenever I play any WMV and WMA files, only those files, I get high pitched noise that is intermittant throughout the song or the video. Other formats are playing fine.

I have Win xp pro sp2, 2gb ram, D945gcl mobo, 2 hard drives, SB Audigy Value (Onboard audio disabled).

I have tried updating codecs and drivers, reinstalling the OS after formatting the primary partition, disabled onboard audio and what not. No help, everyone I talk about this problem, asks me to try updating codecs and drivers, but problem persists. These files are playing fine on other computers (friends).

What more information do you guys would like? Do you guys think this can be solved?

Thanks and peace.
Om.

    Hi,



    Well, I guess it's not that simple. Because, with on board audio enabled, I still have the sample problem.



    I want to bring your attention to the point that the problem is only with those two formats.



    Any other thoughts friends?

Remove DRM from WMV WMA


What is DRM? Why do we remove DRM from WMA WMV? Have you download music and video from Windows Media Player, iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, bearshare, Spiral Frog, BBC iPlayer downloads? These popular music and movie download programs among the music fans always come with a disgusting word - 'DRM'.
DRM (Digital Rights Management) - The anti consumer copy protection that prevents you from using music or movies in a way that suits you. For example, if a WMA or WMV you downloaded from WMP(windows media player) that has DRM, you can only play it back on a compatible device, so if every piece of music had DRM on it you would need to buy the same track on CD to listen in your CD player or car, as an iTunes download to play on your iPod, as a ms store download to play on your Zune etc, but since you paid for it once you shouldn't be forced to pay for it again and again and again, remove DRM license from WMA WMV and other protected files then you can play the music video on phone, iPod, Zune, PSP, CD player, pc, burn DRM protected WMV files to DVD and copy drm protected wmv itunes m4v movie files to anything else that you can listen to music video on.
How to remove DRM from WMA WMV? I got a few methods listed below:
1. Burn and rip
Actually, there is a common free method to remove DRM from WMA with 2 steps, Step 1 Burn the protected WMA to a CD
Step 2 Rip them off to your computer, then the DRM should be removed from the WMA files.
But it's not very convenient and may wear out your CR-ROM. And windows media player can only burn and rip the WMA (or you will need DVD copy and DVD ripper for other formats).
2. Re-record
One of the most common and simple technology is recording the DRM protected WMA then use an ordinary converter to convert the recorded and unprotected files. Because this technology is easy to realized and easy to support more DRM formats besides protected WMA it is welcomed by most of the DRM converters like the SoundTaxi, NoteBurner , etc.
But there are some disadvantages for those programs.
1. The conversion speed won't get much improvement due to the long recording process.
2. Much audio and video quality could be lost during the recording process.
3. Hook
Hook is another new and more complicated technology which can be used to remove DRM license from protected WMA WMV files. Comparing with recording process, these sorts of drm removal have much higher conversion speed, but it's hard to make it support some DRM formats with new and lofty encrpytion tachniques.
And as far as I know, Aimersoft was one of its supporters. After giving a test for some free trials I found it is convenient to crack DRM from protected WMA WMV files with Aimersoft Media Converter, and it also supports other formats conversion like AAC, AC3, WAV, M4A, M4b, MP3, etc.

Though originally used for windows operating system, the WMV and WMA format have become very common in music download services. However, in this area, they always include DRM protection, that prevents illegally duplication. Unfortunately, Songs bought from different companies will have different DRM protection that can restrict you from playing songs on incompatible players.

I can't get my MP3 to download and play WMA Format


Here is the asterisk behind WMA compatibility - there are two types of WMA files - protected and unprotected. 90% of WMA files are DRM-protected, hence they are either not usable in mp3 players that say they can play WMA's, or the song has a DRM restriction on it that prevents it from being played on an mp3 player without purchasing additional rights.

To avoid the problem completely, only download songs that are in mp3 format. It may be more expensive initially, but they are better in the long-term - even if you found a WMA file that eventually works with your mp3 player, the protected WMA files have an expiration date, so they would stop working after 30 days, 90 days, 1 year, or 2 years depending on the specific license for each song. Mp3 files never expire, never give you error messages, and work with nearly (if not all) 100% of mp3 players.

Good luck!
