    Convert WMV Files
    I have some WMV video files from some bonus DVD included from a copy of XP I purchased in 2003, this DVD includes lots of bonus features including movies, so I would like to be able to play back these movies. However, they seem to have DRM on them of some sort. Opening in VLC yields rainbow bars like a TV with a bad signal, and iSquint cannot convert them. When I booted into my win7 partition and attempted to play with WMP, it said it needed to download usage rights- does anyone know of a way I can convert these movies to another format? If they have DRM on them it will be a 2003 technology, as that's when the metadata says they were created.

    Thanks for any help!

    Unfortunately, breaking DRM would constitute a violation of the US DMCA - and since we don't discuss illegal activity at this forum, we can not assist.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
