    Default DCF File problem in Music Library..

    i have noticed 1 problem after updating to new version ,

    i cant play .dcf files in my music library now , each time a songs is opened it shows a cross on tht song.

    i read somwhere "
    File Description Media file encoded with DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy-protection; used by some cell phones for saving protected ringtones, pictures, videos, and other media clips; similar to a .DM file, but the rights object, which allows the encrypted data to be played back, is contained in a separate file.

    Because DCF files are saved in a protected or "locked" format, they can typically only be opened using an authorized cell phone.
    "


    so are my songs getting locked permanently if m playing thm.

    please help how to solve this problem before all songs get locked ...

    Sorry, I don't know what a .DCF file is. Who encrypted it? Obviously it's some sort of DRM that Nokia, I guess now, doesn't support. Or, it's another bug.

    the pre-loaded songs which were in .dcf format each show a small cross mark on them(when tried to play)
    and now iam unable to play them. the error message i get is 'corrupted file' whereas .mp3 songs are being play without ne problem.

    Interesting. I think it's safe to say it's a DRM issue.

    I had called up the Nokia Support Staff, they advised me to call up the Nokia Care Center and tell them abt my issue. I was told that once i give the relevant details to them (serial no. cell no. etc), a number of SMS (same as the total no. of default songs) will be sent to ur fone, wit the keys. This should solve the issue. .. I had deleted the songs before i knew abt this.. so didnt try..may be u guys can give it a try.

    I faced the same problem... however I visited the Nokia Care and they have activated the keys for songs. Now all songs are playing.... I have asked about the issue and the Nokia person said earlier they used to send the activation key thru sms, however now one has to visit the Nokia Care center for activation the license key.... so don't delete the songs visit the Nokia care..
