How do i

I bought an original cd but found out that even if i own the cd and have paid for it, i am still unable to import the sound clip into windows movie maker because of the prompt: "cannot be imported protected by digital rights management" is quite unfair to be unable to share the sound clip (not a video). Many thanks in advance for all your kind help. :)

    ...more exactly, how do i "unprotect" a wma sound clip protected by "digital rights management" on cds?

  • Do not ask me I dont know...

    Thank you wiz Mrvica but the file is too large for my computer. I tried downloading Pinnacle Studio 9 but it will take 4 1/2 hours and a large 214 MB file ! Maybe I should remove my Windows Movie Maker file first to make way for that ? What do you recommend ? Many many thanks, I appreciate. :)

  • Do not ask me I dont know...

    well the answer was helpful but not directly answering how get rid of the digital rights management prompt. How many millions of YouTube videos or audio clips came to be published from sources all over the world most of them have been purchased legitimately but after rightful purchased the same "digital rights protect" script have been encountered by millions before me.

    Many thanks again for trying to find a direct solution. Downloading Pinnacle Studio 9 is only one of the many solutions but I dont want to download it. Besides if there is a straight-to-the-point solution of "unprotecting" the CD then I would be most happy to learn about it.

    Thank you for being such a gentleman and helpful too! I'm a girl and I appreciate your courtesy. I only put up Jerome Kerviel's photo on my profile because he is "cute and dangerous". Lol. :)

I noticed a problem on my netbook which turns out to be a virus - Security Tool. I was unable to go into the Task Manager and was also unable to use the Run command from the start menu. I decided to reboot...

Security Tool likes to download instantly. My last encounter wiped me out for months even though I had bitdefender (anti-proactive virus protection) of course the jerks were absolutely no help and kept asking me to perform insanely difficult and meaningless GMER files and all sorts of other stuff that had no baring on my situation. I was able to access task manager, stopped the program from running, hunted the program and virus attachments and removed them one by one many of which I found automatically starting in the registry. My final step to fixing my problem which even after a month of asking bitdefender the answer to no avail, was to run winsock utility, which fixed the issue with me not being able to log on to the internet. But, that did take care of my problems, except for a few remaining virus definitions I had originally missed needed to be eradicated.

In your case however, it sounds like you have lost a very crucial portion of the operating system. Hence, the request for the illusive back-up CD, nobody ever actually gets.

They found out that if they don't give us our operating system on CD-Rom any longer that we will be at their agonizing mercy on the end of a once great technical support system degraded into last ditch attempts to steal your time and patience, before driving you up a wall to the roof with a shotgun, by companies with philosophies like, "well, you're the one who bought it." "How is it my fault that I sold you this piece of junk." because they know if you go somewhere else you're bound to eventually have an even crappier experience with one of their subsidiary companies.

I just bought a new HP Pavillion p6320f. Several times after downloading microsoft updates and restarting, the computer would simply not go to the desktop after showing the Starting Windows screen. Even...

My advice would be since you been onto HP tech, is either get hold of your copy of the operating system cd, and boot from CD and enter the windows CD key which should be on a sticker somewhere, and start a fresh without any of the so called bloatware that comes preinstalled on the machine, which may be causing problems with long boot up times and causing windows updates problems. If you can't get hold of the CD, of the operating system cd or wasn't supplied one, ring HP and they may supply you with one, but big companies don't like to hand them out. But worth a try. Alternativaly, get hold of a copy from someone else, but use your Windows licence key to install, otherwise it's illegal. Then you would have to go to HP website and seek out drivers for your system, look for support/drivers and you should be able to put you PC model number in and get to the page with the drivers you need.
Alternatively, remove all HP related software from add/remove programs within the control panel, and anything else that was preinstalled that you dont use. and see if that resolves the problem.
But I'd go for the first option personally as you wont have all the HP garbage installed, but just a fresh installation, and hopefully a speedy top notch pc.
Note... Make factory restore recovery CD's before doing any of this, should be an option in the start menu somewhere check your manual/user guide. THIS IS IMPORTANT just in case you send it back.

The CD ROM Drive is not ejecting properly

Locking device / software installed
First, verify no locking software is being loaded, which would allow the CD-ROM tray not to open. If you are unable to determine this, reboot the computer and as it is booting up, attempt to eject the tray. No power to computer or CD-ROM drive
If you have recently installed a new CD-ROM drive or you have moved the computer, it is possible that the power to the CD-ROM may have become loose or disconnected. Check the cable connections. Bad eject button
If you are running Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP, open My computer, right-click on the CD-ROM drive and choose the option to eject. If this ejects your CD-ROM drive tray, it is likely that the button on the CD-ROM drive has become defective and it is recommended that the drive be replaced. CD stuck within drive
It is possible that a CD may have become stuck within the CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM drive has a small hole (that is not the head phone jack), using a paper clip, place the paper clip within the hole and attempt to manually eject the CD-ROM tray. If the CD-ROM drive is only partially able to be opened, attempt to pull the tray gently to see if it can be manually ejected. If it cannot be opened any further, it is likely that the gears within the CD-ROM drive have become bad, dislodged, or that a CD is positioned in the drive, which does not allow it to open. Incompatibility with IDE / ATAPI interface
If you have an IBM compatible computer and recently installed the CD-ROM drive and are unable to open the drive, attempt to temporarily disconnect the IDE cable to verify that you not experiencing an issue with an incompatibility between the CD-ROM and motherboard. Once the IDE cable has been disconnected, power on the computer and see if the CD-ROM drive tray is now able to be opened. If the drive is able to be opened with the IDE / ATAPI cable disconnected, it is recommended you use the interface card supplied with the CD-ROM drive or the ATAPI interface on the sound card / motherboard. Bad drive
Unfortunately, if after following the above recommendations you are still unable to properly open the CD-ROM drive using the button on the front of the CD-ROM drive, it is likely defective and should be replaced. Caution: If you are able to open the CD-ROM drive using a paper clip. We do not recommend that you continue using the CD-ROM drive by manually ejecting the CD-ROM using a paper clip. The drive should be replaced and this is not meant to be used as a temporary solution. Additional information and tips for buying a new CD-ROM drive can be found on our CD-ROM buying tips section.

Unable to connect my Treo Palm Pro to my pioneer CD-BTB200

I'm not sure if this is still an issue for the original poster, but as this is one of the top Google results when searching for 'Pioneer CD-BTB200 Treo Pro," I thought I'd post the solution I've found:

JETware Hands-free Extension:

I'm not sure how it works or even what the original issue is, and I really don't care. This fixes the problem. Sadly, it costs $15 (as of July 19, 2009.) I'm quickly learning that Windows Mobile requires quite a bit of 3rd party software (often overpriced) to work correctly and efficiently.

Loading songs on ipod

Usb 1 is not very slow, maybe computer system is busy doing some other services which is unknown to you.

if you plan to restore computer back to original state. you should back up first the important files(personal files any files that is important to you.)

system restore is not quite good except , you have an original windows system cd enclosed in your computer. doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

If non of those; then you should provide windows cd and reinstall your windows: doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

just follow the onscreen instructions.

some drivers of your computer notify me with the brand , model, motherboard details. if in case.
