    Zune not Droid Friendly?

    Seems like the music I download from the Zune marketplace (.wma) doesn't play on the Droid my mp3's play. not .wma's? Does drm protction have something to do with this?

    Has anyone else had this problem?...Or am I the only one with a Zune?

    Don't know why it won't play. DRM shouldn't keep it from playing. .wma will play on the Droid.

    Minority report

    It seems we are in the minority. I'll have to let you know though as I have a Zune but no Droid yet. Pre-Ordered for Thursday though. I will be very annoyed if I can use my song downloaded from the Zune Marketplace since I was planning to use Ringdroid to make custom Ringtones using the music I already have.

    Edit:

    Everytime I try to play a .wma that i downloaded from the Zune maketplace it says: sorry the player does not support this type of audio file. And thats thru root explorer, the .wma's don't even show up in the stock music player or in nemo player. What is really strange is that .wma files that i did not download from Zune play fine!?

    Help please!

    DRM

    Except for the 10 free songs a month (or whatever MS has as a special now) all the songs you download through the Zune Software is protected with DRM. They will only play on a Zune activated to your account.
    Because Zune uses a monthly subscription model that lets you download as much as you want, as soon as you cancel your subscription, your files will become useless.

    You should be able to burn your songs onto a CD (from within the Zune Software), and then use a cd ripper tool to rip them again to mp3/wma, and then the DRM is gone.

    Its a trick used by many iTunes users, but it should work with the Zune software as well (untested by me though)

    If you use Zune Pass to download songs they are subscription and those songs are not playable on non-Zune devices and can not be burned to a CD. At least not in any way that I know of.

    Your 10 free songs a month that you can keep forever or any songs you actually buy outright should work fine on the Droid. Worst case, those songs can be burned to CD and ripped as MP3 and will work.

    My mistake, sorry.
