[access-uk] Re: WMA files

Hi Donna,

It sounds like you only had so many activations.  This is how DRM works.
The only way round it, would be to contact the download site, where the file
was purchased.  This is why I hate DRM incidentally.  Long live MP3 files.

All the best

Steve, when I had them on the computer before my hard disk drive and Windows
reinstall, it gave me the option to download a licence for them from a
website and they played fine.  The licence obviously must've gon when the
Windows was reinstalled, but now it's not launching the website that lets
you get the licence.
