    Hi everyone. Got a DSM-320 last week and I'm having a tough time with
    something. If I use sharing with WMP, I can see my music and videos and play
    them with no problems. My pictures are another story...

    I can see the folders and the files, but I get and "Unsupported file type"
    error. I know that this can't be becuase if I use the dLink software, I can
    see my files. but I'm missing the keywords and added search features that I'd
    like to have.

    The only thing that I can think of is when I check out the file properties
    of the JPG in WMP, I see that the file is "Missing Media Usage Rights." OK,
    so could this be the problem, since the player only plays DRM accepted
    materiels, and if it is, how the heck do I get meida usage rights for my OWN
    digital images?! lol

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to use WMP, but at this
    point... I NEED HELP!!

    What does their support say about that?
    There's no "media rights" in that context to look up for JPEG files - you're
    following a red herring there.

    WMP and most DLNA-esque receivers should be able to play non-DRM content
    just fine. I regularly have house parties with non-DRM MP3/WMA music played
    back via my Roku or Xbox 360.
