Hi Darrick, your reply has almost solved my problem also of playing my protected downloaded music with Nero, the only problem I now have is whenever I open a WMA protected file in Nero I get the error message "plug-in loading error!" however when I click on "o.k" the file proceeds to play as desired until the next song initializes when it pops up the error box again. Any suggestions......
I am using Nero 22.214.171.124 but have installed updated the Media Player to 126.96.36.199
update: i have just popped in a bog standard audio cd in cd player and same prob occurs
