Windows 7: Windows Media Player can't play any DRM coded files

Windows Media Player can't play any DRM coded files

Hey I use Zune and almost always use the Zune software to play my music but I also like Media Center and play music from it sometimes. So a few days ago I tried to play something on Media Center and it didn't work. I know that when you play music in Media Center on the PC it actually is using Media Player so I tried to play the same music in there and got a error with the code C00D11B1 I thought it was something with the Zune DRM since all my DRM protected music wouldn't play in Media Player, but this morning I turned on Copy protect during a rip just see if that would work, it didn't. So Media Player won't play any DRM music, anyone else have this problem and/or know of a fix?

Thanks,
Josh

Hey josh and welcome
Windows media player 11 tends to have this problem more than 9, or 10. there is a page here Media Player c00d11b1 | PC Error Repair that describes the problem and offers several methods of curing it. We could alway also use the system specs so that we would know what kind of hardware we are dealing with

hope this helps

Thanks, I tried the first thing that website mentioned which I guess I should have thought of first. I uninstalled Windows Media Player and reinstalled it. Seems to work fine now.

I tried removing and reinstalling no luck. I know this is beta, but as big as MS is on DRM you think they could have got this right. I love my Zune and it's features. All Window Media Players have been crap over the years. I just want the DRM fixed, any suggestions?
