IPOD doesn't see valid-DRM-licensed WMA library files transferred to it by Overdrive Media Console
Posted on 2010-08-21
Overdrive Media Console definitely says it supports putting WMA files on IPODs. The DRM protection is worked out betweem WMP and OMC apparently. And this setup works to put WMA files on a Zen Vision player. But I can't get the IPOD to display the WMA file info, even tho the files are on the ipod.
On a Vista Home Premium SP2 computer running Overdrive Media Console v188.8.131.52 and Itunes 184.108.40.206, we download WMA files with DRM protection from the Califa Northern California Digital Library.
Thru Overdrive Media Console, we first download the WMA files to the vista folder, and then transfer them to the IPOD, using the OMC wizards. The IPOD is model m9282ll, ver 3.1.1.
When I browse the root folder of the IPOD, the WMA files are there,.
But when I unplug the ipod, I can't find any related file info.
Also, the files don't appear in ituines. (If I manually add the wma mfiles to itunes, it tries to convert wma to mpe and says it can't due to protection. But note - the wma files can be transferred normally to a zen using OMC)
