    I have done everything the help page has told me to do. I purchased a
    download and it won't let me play the song. I know there is something simple
    to do, but I am new to this. Please help. I have WMP11 and I am running
    Windows XP.

    Thank you to anyone who can help.

    I have the same problem, I went over to the stores where I downloaded the
    songs, followed their instructions, and still nada. I followed the link you
    left in the previous post and I just get a grey button. Downloaded the DRM
    wizard and still have not resolved this issue. I have all of the correct
    codecs, and the songs are newly downloaded (with much grief from the vendors
    might I add) and the licensing is refreshed. I play all of my other songs
    that I had before all this DRM junk and they play fine, just the purchased
    ones don't. Error code is C00D11B1 with no help on the "help" page of any
    value...any suggestions?

    Kind Regards,
    AjR

  3. Can you elaborate on this remark? You recommend against purchasing
    tracks? [1]

    [1] Not that *I* disagree, but often purchasing tracks is the only
    viable option, and it's not the *purchasing* part that is the problem,
    but the *DRM* (non) 'protection', which only gets in the way of
    *legitimate* users.

    Thank you for your response. Of course, when I follow the link, I get the
    gray box.

  5. Thanks! I totally agree. I found it strange to see all the DRM
    problems in this group but hardly any critcism towards DRM itself.
    'Hearing' your opinion brings a bit of fresh air to the group! :)
    Thanks again.

    FWIW, I never bought any (downloadable) tracks, but got two
    DRM-protected tracks as a gift. The computer (hard-disk) crashed and the
    rest is - literally - history [1]. So also for me it's "DRM, just say
    no!".

    [1] See <in this group for the
    gory details ("Media Usage Rights lost if new disk/computer?" of
    October 24).
