    Im not sure if I'm the first to have this problem I can't find anything on it. I install and license my tracks that I purchased from Musicmatch and everything is fine under SP1A when I install SP2RC1 the same tracks only play for 28 seconds then stop. I made a backup of the DRM file under SP1 and tried to use it and they still play or should I say don't play. I have un-installed Windows Media player and re-installed it thinking that may have something to do with it it didn't help. I have tried this multiple things even un-installin Musicmatch installing SP2RC1 and then re-installing Musicmatch it still does the same thing, Musicmatch support has been of no help. Some one please help. I am only assuming that it is a problem with DRM, after reading the release notes from Microsoft. Thanks.

    Hiya and welcome

    Are you using Windows XP? I'm assuming you are.

    Just read this:


    Is this where you have obtained it from?

    Maybe Music match is not supported on the new XP SP. I know that Microsoft want to install their own media player on the new Windows out soon, Longhorn. This means that all files have to be played with that program only. Maybe they're thinking along those lines now.

    Is this hapening on or offline?
