and have run up against a DRM issue with copyrighted media. Can you provide any more information about the DVDs you ripped? Some are protected.
I recently ripped a few DVDs to view the files on a portable player. The files appear fine, and play great on the Win7 machine... though half of them have a small lock on the bottom left of their icon.
I burned them as a data DVD to get them onto the XP computer that has the SD reader that I actually needed them on for the portable player. I checked them first and WMP wouldn't play them properly. Yes, it's a roundabout way to get things done, but it allowed me to find this glitch(?) so I can ask what it is and why the files would not play properly on an XP machine.
(I even asked a friend to try the DVD on his machine and it wouldn't load the files at all, as if a codec was missing)
Long story short (too late)
I have files displaying a small lock in the corner. What does it mean and how can I remove it?
