    Never had a problem before, but today 5 tracks that I ripped off my
    own CD's require a license to play

    "A license is required to play this file

    The file you are trying to play was ripped (copied) from an audio CD."

    fair enough I understand the process

    The 5 files are over 2 years old and I'm sure I've listened to them on
    my PC - but perhaps not with WMP

    I download the license, but it still won't play
    and in fact asks for another

    I've searched my PC and found the newly download files in
    \Windows\All Users\DRM

    Seeing the file names drmv1lic reminds me that I recenlt tidid uop a
    lot of files and these files may have got deleted.

    But why after a Download, does it ask for the license again ?

    Why not rerip them without licensing turned on?

    (speaking for myself and doing this in my free time)

    thanks for the reply, yes I can - I still have the CD's

    but anyone know why, it downloads license and then asks again for the
    license when I press Play ?
    ?? why do you put (-- ) in twice ?
    Agent, cuts everything after the last one
    so original post goes - no problems with top posting, but a bit of
    history can be useful
    You reply to loads of posts, sometimes I've deleted the original
    and so your reply is out of context !
