To transfer copyright-protected WMA music to the portable player, you must use the Windows Media® Player software. The Content Transfer software cannot transfer copyright-protected music.

NOTE: The Windows Media Player 11 software does not analyze the sound patterns of songs while transferring. When songs are transferred with Windows Media Player, the ZAPPIN effectiveness will not be optimal because the most melodic or rhythmical song passages will not be recognized.
