WMA's Sync protected wma's to SD card

Everytime I try to sync protected wma's to my SD card ti listen to them on my PDA, they error and do not sync to the card. The unprotected wma's and mp3's snyc just fine. I legally downloaded these songs (Walmart.com) and I have backed up the license. I searched Microsoft.com and found a topic stating my media or player must be DRM enabled. My PDA is an HP iPaq running MS Mobile Windows and Mobile Windows Media Player which I have updated both recently in case that might have been the problem.

Do they sync to the device?

Try copy-and-paste...

In reply to: WMA's Sync protected wma's to SD card

If syncing fails, I just pop the SD card out, pop it into my computer's memory card, copy-and-paste the content onto it directly, then pop the card back into my PDA for use. It rarely fails me though, and I'm running Windows Mobile 2003SE on an Axim X30, using ActiveSync 4.1 on Windows XP. (What are you using?)

Hope this helps,
