Digital Rights Management (drm) Technology

Question

Good Evening,

 

Most of the movies I purchase now days have a digital copy disk that is enclosed with the primary DVD disk.

 

I am trying to extract a digital copy (.wmv) of my purchased "PAID" movies to my itouch system and I purchased from Roxio on-line since their website claimed to have the ability to take a wmv to an ipod format.

 

I downloaded the software and paid the registration fee of $39.95 and whenever I try and convert my video, I receive an error message saying that "THIS FOLDER CONTAINS FILES PROTECTED WITH DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT (DRM) TECHNOLOGY. DRM PROTECTED FILES CANNOTBE ADDED TO A PROJECT, SO THEY WILL NOT BE DISPLAYED.

 

I've sent several emails to Roxio with no responses.

 

Bottom line is I am unable to convert my *.wmv format to my IPOD.

 

Anyone have any suggestions? Did I just throw away $39.95?

 

Thanxs...

 

Barry

If you bought this as a download from Roxio's site I suggest taking advantage of their 30-day refund policy. I'm presuming you are using the PC version which I don't know anything about. However, the Mac version is way too old to understand the rules of a digital copy disc.
