Digital Rights Update Tool From Microsoft Removes DRM From WMA Files
Digital Rights Update Tool from Microsoft removes DRM from WMA files
Do you have a collection of music files in the .wma format that you ripped from CDs using Windows Media Player? If so, you may have encountered some problems playing them on other devices or platforms, such as MP3 players or smartphones. This is because these files are protected by a digital rights management (DRM) system that restricts their use and distribution. However, there is a way to remove this copy protection and enjoy your music without any limitations. Microsoft has recently released a tool called Digital Rights Update Tool that can help you do just that.
What is Digital Rights Update Tool?
Digital Rights Update Tool is a free app that you can download from the Microsoft Store. It is designed to remove the DRM protection that you added when ripping CDs to the .wma format from within Windows Media Player. Other forms of copy protection cannot be removed by this tool. The app is simple and easy to use. You just need to select the folder where your .wma files are stored, and the app will scan and process them automatically. You can also choose to delete the original files after the conversion, or keep them as backups.
Why use Digital Rights Update Tool?
By using Digital Rights Update Tool, you can free your music files from the DRM restrictions and enjoy them on any device or platform that supports the .wma format. You can also convert them to other formats, such as MP3 or AAC, using third-party software. This way, you can have more flexibility and control over your music collection. You can also avoid potential issues with DRM licenses, such as expiration or revocation, that may prevent you from accessing your files in the future.
How to use Digital Rights Update Tool?
To use Digital Rights Update Tool, follow these steps:
Download and install the app from the Microsoft Store.
Launch the app and click on "Select Folder" to choose the folder where your .wma files are located.
The app will scan and list all the .wma files in the folder. You can select all or some of them by checking the boxes next to their names.
Click on "Convert" to start removing the DRM protection from the selected files. The app will show you the progress and status of each file.
When the conversion is done, you can find the converted files in a subfolder named "DRM-free" inside the original folder.
You can choose to delete the original files by clicking on "Delete Originals", or keep them by clicking on "Keep Originals".
You can now play your converted files on any device or platform that supports the .wma format, or convert them to other formats using third-party software.
Digital Rights Update Tool is a useful app that can help you remove the DRM protection from your .wma files that you ripped from CDs using Windows Media Player. By doing so, you can enjoy your music without any limitations or issues. The app is free and easy to use, and you can download it from the Microsoft Store. If you have any questions or feedback about the app, you can contact Microsoft through their support page.
