    Here's a new problem. When I try to rip a cd (any cd...I tried a number of
    them) I get "error" under the "rip status" column and then when I look under
    the properties of one of the songs it says "the file is missing media usage
    rights". What do I do? Thanks for any help.

    Digital Rights Management - DRM

    Try this:
    Open WMP
    Click: Tools>Options>Rip Music Tab
    Clear the checkbox for: "Copy protect music"
    now try ripping.

    Just a note, media usuage rights fall under DRM,
    and the rights as such, allow specifics such as play,
    burn or sync.
    As you are ripping from commercial release CD's
    this won't be an issue, but it once was....
    There was a furore not so long back when Sony
    hid rootkits on some releases, but thats all died
    down now.
