    Thanks Midwest-tech The audiobooks library site allows downloading but you have to open the file in windows media to aquire the liscence, which I've down and the liscence is aquired. Does the mp-3 player have to be some way compatible for drm files to succsessfully receive these files from the computet?

No you would have to remove drm protection to be able to do what you are trying to do. This is unfortunate but that is what the task of drm is designed to do. So in that it cant just be widely shared amongst people.

I am trying to download an audiobook file (WMA) from my library website to my Coby 601. The library uses a program called overdrive to download to handheld devices. It says my Coby does not recognize WMA...


The player does in fact play WMA files. However, if the audiobook is a protected audiobook that you purchased, the Coby device cannot play what is called DRM protected files. While Overdrive supports the playback of these files, the Coby player may not, or you no longer have authorization to play the file.

I have copied some wma music files onto it but it will not play. It says, No authority (and has DRM in the top left corner)


It's a pain but if you can burn those files from windows media player to an 'audio disc' not an mp3 disc and then re-import them into windows or whatever you use from that audio disc as mp3 files they will shed their DRM's. DRM's stand for digital rights management so be sure your not infringing on copyrights when you do this and only do it for music that you actually own.

WMA folders are "no Authority" and wont play


These files have DRM, or Digital Rights Management, which only allows them to play on authorized machines. There are many programs out there to remove the DRM without affecting the quality of the songs, such as freeme2 and Digital Music Converter. Another method is to burn them to a CD, then re-rip them. It is fair use if you're using them on your own devices.

Cannot play wma audio book on mp3


Audiobooks in WMA format have a restrictive DRM-license that does not allow their use on certain types of mp3 player. To use the WMA file that you already have, you will need to use an illegal DRM-stripper such as Tunebite - but, that's illegal.

You will have to stick to audiobooks that are in mp3 format - and even then, there are a few asterisks - you may not be able to resume where you left off without fast-forwarding. But at least you will be able to play the file.

Transfer WMA files to Sansa c250


There two types of WMA file - protected and unprotected (also called "DRM-free" and "DRM-encrypted"). Some protected or encrypted WMA's may allow you to play back on your computer, but will not allow you to play those same files on an mp3 player. There are only two ways around your problem - one is expesnive, and one is illegal:
1) You can purchase additional rights on Overdrive to transfer your audiobooks to a "portable device" (by which, they include mp3 players).
2) You can download a program such as Tunebite to strip the Overdrive of it's DRM license, rendering the file of its protection (I would NOT reccomend this route).

The WMA files that you had that worked before were either unprotected, or were protected but had transfer rights.

Drm installation issues


DRM-protected WMA files are going to give you this problem, depending on where you got them from - it is not a defect with the player itself (a limitation, perhaps). For instance, Spiral Frog downloads will not be usable on this player. Nor will songs that do not have transfer rights.

Your best bet is to get songs that are in mp3 format - they will not give you any DRM issues.

I have a Mambo Mano 4GB Trying to run with Windows Vista. Can anyone PLEASE tell me where to get the necessary drivers.......


You should not need any drivers for this device. Vista should recognize this player as a remote disk. You should be able to drag and drop the files to the remote device from your home computer. The application files are on the Kaser website. Once installed this file should allow you to convert different video formats to the required MTV file format so that you can play videos on the player.

Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX' window.

Click on the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to confirm the settings.
Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the music to your computer.
When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location window.
To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window.
When the files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format.
