    I use Easy CD-DA Extractor for ripping my albums.
    It also comes with Easy Audio File Converter.

    Here's the problem:

    I received an album ripped with WMP in .wma file format from my friend.
    I wanted to convert the files to .mp3 and received an error from the Easy Audio File Converter:

    "DRM Protected (Copy-Protected) WMA files are not supported!"

    And it refuses to convert the files.

    Is there any way around this problem. Does anybody know of a program (converter) that ignores this protection and converts the files anyway.

    And don't tell me to ask my friend to rip them again not using WMP but something else, I already know that solution.
    I would like to use the files I already have. Who knows, the solution for this might be useful in the future.

    Thanks

    I tried the converter from that site, but it also refuses to convert the protected .wma files.

    Thanks anayway.

    I guess I'll just have to ask my friend to rip them again, this time using something else, like Easy CD-Da Extractor.

    Ahh, damn Micro$oft, dissapoints me every time.

    Wow....that&#39;s weird. I actually downloaded it to make sure it would work, and it converted an entire Evanescene album (from WMA) that I got from mp3delivery.

    Are your files those XP-only "lossless" VBR files? That could be a factor, since the ones I got were normal 80kbps WMA&#39;s.

    The problems is that they are protected.

    I have no problems converting non-protected .wma files. I guess yours are not protected.
    Otherwise they are ripped at 192 kbps.

    Thanks anyway.

    You can rip them without copy-protection in WMP too; under Options>Copy Music simply uncheck Copy Protect Music.

    ...but you probably already knew that

    Try Acoustica MP3 To Wave Converter it can convert between mp3,wav,and wma...Don&#39;t remember the web site just type it in in yahoo or something you should find it.

    I use Audio Conversion Wizard. Search on google or Kazaa and you&#39;ll find it. ^_^
