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.

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 song.
