Why can't I import music files from CDs and/or C: to my movies? All files
are reading "protected by Digital Rights Management". Will I be able to add
my music to my movie?
The reason you can't use your music is because it is copy protected. If
it's purchased music (paid for and downloaded from the internet) then it
comes that way. If you burned them yourself from CD's then you have "use
digital rights" checked in the preferences of whatever program you used to
rip the CD's. You can only import "non-copy protected" music. you will
need to re-rip the music to your hardrive again, but make sure you turn off
the copy protection. if its purchased (downloaded) music, the only way I am
aware you can strip the copy protection off, is to burn the songs to an
audio CD, and then re-rip them to your hard drive without the protection.
It's a long way around, but it works.
<editorial> It's really a shame that honest people who pay for their music
have such a hard time using it as they wish, but it's very easy to use
illegally downloaded music. </end soapbox>
