Music DRM problems!
Pocket PC/Smartphones and DRM - A Completely Broken Scenario
Pocket PCs and Smartphones, even running the newest Windows Mobile 2003 SE OS, are not compatible with music download service such as Napster, Wal-mart, or any other WMA-based DRM store - at least when we're talking about memory cards. The reason as to why is long and complicated, but there's a reason why no Pocket PC is listed as being "Music Service Friendly". And this isn't related to the Janus DRM either - that's DRM for subscription-based music that will time out.
I did some testing on my Dell Axim X30 using DRM-protected songs from Puretracks, an online Canadian music store. I could sync and play tracks from both internal RAM, and internal storage. When I performed this test two months ago using Windows Media Player 9, I remember being able to sync to the memory card as well, and that being unusual because people using Napster and Wal-mart couldn't. However, Windows Media Player 10 beta doesn't recognize the memory card on the X30, so I can't perform the test again to confirm that.
Read the whole article - especially the solution.
