About licenses and protected files

Some content (such as digital media files downloaded from the Internet, CD tracks, and

videos) have associated licenses that protect them from being unlawfully distributed or

shared. Licenses are created and managed by using digital rights management (DRM),

which is the technology for securing content and managing its access rights. Some

licenses may prevent you from playing files that have been copied to your device. Files

that have licenses associated with them are called “protected files.”
If you want to copy a protected file from your PC to your device, use the desktop Player to

synchronize the file to your device (instead of dragging the file from a folder on your PC to

a folder on your device, for example). This will ensure that the license is copied along with

the protected file. For more information about synchronizing files to your device and other

mobile devices, see desktop Player Help.


You can view the protection status for a file by checking its file properties (tapping


> Properties).
