I have a drawer full of them. SanDisk devices for a start. Creative. Iriver. Samsung. And so the list goes on...

I just don't know if any Android phones have media players that sync with WMP.

Cheers, Dave.

Anything MTP or MSC, I believe... Though MSC is a little bit not right, if my memory serves right...

Anything MTP - MSC will also work with WMP, but you won't be able to download DRM'd music to it.

Cheers, Dave.

Thanks for this info. I'd been looking into ZunePass and could never find a direct answer. I have one Zune HD and several other MTP players. This info makes a huge difference. Other posts seemed to imply this worked, but was a temporary loophole.

If you have a device that syncs with WMP, you can also sync your Zune Pass content with it via WMP. I'm not sure if your Android phone is such a device...

Cheers, Dave.
I get a no sync rights error on everything that hasn't been downloaded within a few days D:

Not really related, but a quick Zune Pass DRM question...maybe I'm doing something wrong as I'm really new to the Zune Pass.

I've downloaded a bunch of albums on my PC...through the software that is linked to my Zune. I can transfer the music to my player, but it just askes me NON-STOP to update the licenses....like for every song when I try to play an album and it won't play any of them. I've synched the licenses and clicked YES a zillion times, both wireless and hooked up via Sych Cable, and it never fixes it.

However, if I download the songs directly to my Zune (ie - use the Market Place on the HD) they play fine without any license issues.

Is that the way it is? Stuff you download onto your PC only plays via the PC Software and the Device Downloaded music only plays on the Device?

No, that's not how it should be. You should be able to download either via the software or the device and it should play for 30 days before it needs a refresh.

Have you called support or posted on the Zune forums?

Cheers, Dave.

No, I haven't...but I was chalking it up to user stupidity. I'll give the official support forums a shot. Thanks!

So when i plug in my droid i can sync it up with WMP (just clarifying) and it does get the metadata (Album art, tags etc.) And if i go to the zune software, play a song with expired rights, i can then sync it to my droid. So besides playing my whole collection...is there a way to do this?

Shouldn't the Zune software refresh the DRM on its own? I highly doubt that needing to play all your music is the only way to do it...

That seems to be it, right click a song and you have no rights, play it, and the rights are refreshed until the next zune pass charge.

That's ridiculous, and I highly doubt that that's the only way to refresh DRM, or I'm sure there would have been TONS of griping before now...
