Hello, I tried that and I'm having the issue that Henry had. I upgraded my computer to windows 8.1. (hard disk formatted.) I re-downloaded my aimersoft and entered my registration key. When I click check driver's it says "all drivers are installed successfully!" . However, even windows media player says that it doesn't have rights to play the file. (wma from xbox music.) Only xbox music does. My goal is to be able to listen to my music on my Apple shuffle when I exercise (which clips to my shirt) rather than having to hold my windows phone. Do you guys need some kind of update to counter this? It used to work a couple of months ago.

Hi Henry. You can take the following steps to solve your problem. Firstly, you need to make sure your file plays well in iTunes or Windows Media Player. Next, click Tools > Preference. And then click the Check Driver button on the DRM tab. Lastly, uninstall the previous version of DRM Media Converter and install the latest one.
