Windows 7: Cannot reset Copyright Protection in Windows Media Player 11

Cannot reset Copyright Protection in Windows Media Player 11

Hi Everyone,

When I first started Windows Media Player 11 I was presented with the following Copyright screen -

I selected "Add copy protection to your music" however recently I have been having a lot of trouble loading my music onto my Android phone. I don't think that it is the phone's fault. I think that I have exceeded the maximum number of file transfers, having previously transferred music to an iPod, iPhone, etc.

Is there anyway of "resetting" WMP11 so that I can choose "Do not add copy protection to your music"?

If I go into the Rip Options inside WMP11 I see that "Copy protect music" is greyed out, as shown below -

Perhaps there is a registry tweak, or something of that nature which will allow me to reset copy protection.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,


My System SpecsSystem Spec
