MusicMatch and Linksys Wireless Music System

by perezra / February 24, 2005 6:29 AM PST

I have a Linksys wireless (802.11b) music system that plays back all my PM3s stored on my computer. The problem, I had only played back MP3s ripped from CDs. I recently bought and downloaded a couple of songs from but these files won't play on the Linksys system. They appear listed but just won't play. Linksys says that they can't play back secured WMA files. Does anyone have a similar system, and if so, have you ran into the same situation?

Thanks for the advice, I'll try it tonight. But woudn't the newly created MP3 be secured as well?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
