I think you're on the right track here.  Check out
When I worked for IODA (a digital music aggregator) we did anything we
needed to with wma's and other proprietary formats (e.g. Sony atrac files)
on a Windows farm.  I don't think there's a legal way to work with
DRM-protected wma's on Linux (short of purchasing a license from MS).

You may have to hook the drive up to a Windows machine and convert the files
to a DRM-less format.  My laptop dual boots Windows and Ubuntu, and I have
experience with audio transcoding.  I'm happy to help, if any of this would
be helpful.
