How do you disable write protection on downloaded music?

You will not be able to remove the protection. It is embeded in

the file itself. These protected files come from Windows Media

Player, usually when ripping music from a CD. It gives the option

to protect the content. What this means, is Microsoft makes a

license for that file, once you download that license, you can

listen to the music no problem. AND.. that license can only be

downloaded ten (10) times total.. by anyone, then the files are

garbage. You are better off downloading a new version of that
