I am just having problems, I don't know if much people can help because it is a DRM issue but last night I purchased an album on the Vodafone music store on my Computer and after it all downloaded and I extracted all the files and that I clicked the play button and most the songs says that it cannot be played on this computer because it is already on another computer and I have not previously downloaded it to my computer is there anything I can do? I've rung Vodafone and they said I have to wait until tonight when everythings loaded onto their system but anything I can try while I am waiting? Many help is appreciated cheers :).

Strip the DRM? (don't ask)
Try and request a new license. If the songs play in media player, try update it to the latest version.

Hey thanks for everyones suggestions, however I am still having no luck, I've not really had time to phone Vodafone I forgot to the other night.  I can't strip the DRM off the file so yeah might have to make time to phone Vodafone back.

Please make sure you take this thru to resolution, so that you cost the music companies way more in CSR time then they would possibly make from the charge for the limited use of the music. If it happens enough maybe they will re-assess their crippling of downloads in this problematic manner.

If you want a invite I think I have one...
