How do you remove write protection on music files to copy to a device?

Origional:You can't. They are copy right protected by the

company that owns the rights to that particular artist or song.

there is no getting around it, belive me. I used to work for sony

music. It is impossible.

Well since I corrected his part I'll put mine in now. I am

personally looking for the same thing but have yet to find any

answer that helps. I have found the answer that I can not change

them from my computer, but if you have the cds for the music you

can burn the music onto a computer. You just have to uncheck the

box that says something along the lines of: "Protect songs",

"Protect Music", "Protected". There should be a check box next to

each song.

I have a WD My bookEssential externL Hard drive. I encountered

this problem-I reset my ex hard-drive by removing the usb cable-now

i CAN PLAY ALL THE CD'S THAT i RIPPED ONTO MY PC'S HARD DRIVE, THEN

MOVED THEM ON TO MY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE.

Try resetting your pc-That might work.

Sorry about all the CAPS. I'm getting used to a new

keyboard.
