When you ripped them, you probably used Windows Media Player which will add copy protection by default if you don't set otherwise.

Either

- Re-rip as MP3
- Re-rip with copy protection off

It is easier to re-rip than to try to remove copy protection.

File Error


Rip the songs in Windows Media Player in mp3 format. Run the mouse over the Rip tab, click on the black arrow, select Format, then mp3. The DRM license on the WMA's is going to mess you up every time.

i use free rip pro for copying my cds to mp3.

go to www.freerip.com/ you can download the free version or buy pro for a small amount. pro is just faster really.

once downloaded you can decide where on your computer you store the mp3 files and even if you want to convert the files to other format than mp3. it really is easy to use and works like a dream

File format not supported


Sounds like the tracks you are trying to play are DRM protected. This usually causes the "File format not supported" error.

If you are downloading these files from the internet, then you'll have to look elsewhere for files.

If you are ripping your own CDs to .MP3 or .WMA with Windows Media Player, then you need to change a setting in Windows Media Player.

Open Windows Media Player. If visible, click on "Tools" then options. If the menus are not visible, right-click at the top of the Media Player Window, then select "Tools" and click options.

Click on the "Rip CD" or "Rip Music" tab (depending on version).

Remove the tick from the box next to "Copy Protect Music" (or similar)

This will stop DRM protection on any further tracks ripped.

You will need to rip any DRM tracks again.

How do I fix a drm problem in windows media player 11


DRM, which specifies whether tracks copied from CDs in Windows Media Audio (WMA) format are protected files. A license, which helps protect the copyrights of artists by preventing unauthorized distribution, is required to play protected files.
If you're trying to play your copy-protected files on a new computer, you can migrate your protected music from one computer to another by doing the following:
Windows Media Player 7.1 or later
1.
Try to play the copy-protected file again.
2.
In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
3.
Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
Windows Media Player 7
1.
Download the Personal License Update Wizard for Windows Media Player (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0048.mspx)and follow the instructions.
2.
Try to play the copy-protected file again.
3.
In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
4.
Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
A license can be migrated ten times. After this limit is reached, you will receive an error when you try to migrate the license again (for more information, see the Windows Media Player FAQ). When this occurs, you will need to rip the file from the CD again.
note.gif Note If you still have the CD in your possession, you can rip the tracks from the CD again, but with copy protection turned off.
