Guess I am just being thick headed about this, but please tell me what you might think of this c/p. The first part of the c/p is the screen I get when I click on the file to listen to the music. This file was originally on the HDD of one of my other PCs and I moved it to this new PC when I installed MY Win98SE. The music on the CD was placed there by my nephew when he wrote and sang the song. It was not a commercial CD but instead it was only a sample of the recording. Never saw anything like this before but I suspect it has occurred because I upgraded WMP to 6.4--my preference of the media players. I think the intent of MS is to help the industry guard against pirated musical CDs.
I can get around this by just deleting the file from my PC but there must be another way to avoid that cause it is good. And no, nephew does not live close by. Perhaps I could send the file back to the PC where it was and burn a CD of the song--could I??

Thanks Jtoast but I don't want to "bow down" to MS because what I have is legit. I may have no other choice but merge the licenses. Any thoughts about sending the file back to the original PC it came from and burning it to a CD?? This is only a demo CD recording; not something that is even on the market--and it may never be!!
