You might find http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=114916 useful -
it's a program that (once) could remove the layer on Windows Media tracks
that makes them unplayable by non-Windows systems.
According to Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Media_DRM,
version 1.3fix-2 is still fully-featured. Once you've done that,
w32codecs or regular mplayer should be okay. And if mplayer can read it,
mencoder can transcode it.
DEC diagnostics would run on a dead whale.
