http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?t=420085</a><br>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).
<br><br>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.
