Music Player can't show cover art or play DRM .wma files?

Hi all

can anyone help with these 2 issues?

1. it looks like the N95 has problems displaying cover art in the Music Player? I tried with a few tracks I'd transferred using Nokia PC Suite, in eAAC format, and also some tracks I transferred using PC Suite but normal .wma, no conversion. No cover art was displayed
2. And it can't play DRM .wma songs I've bought from Virgin Digital music shop? (when I transferred them to the phone and played them, it said 'license expired')

thanks, I checked that out.

interesting: I've now found out that the DRM .wma files I have on my PC have jpg files - and when I transfer these tracks over tothe phone, the album art does actually appear without me having to do anything! The only problem is at the moment, it wont play the DRM files - says 'license expired'

However I can see album art for all my albums in Windows Media Player - yet there are no jpg files in the actual folders.... not sure where WMP is getting the jpg files from! For these tracks, no album art shows on the phone....

Out of every phone the only one I thought could play DRM files was ROKR and similar.

Anyone found a solution for this problem?
Have the same problem. Music bought via internet (.wma files) are not played in my N95. It always said (license expired)

For me it displayed album art without a problem if I do not convert from mp3 to AAC or whatever it is..If it gets converted then album art cant be viewed on my device..

Here's what I found: virgin digital told me that if I upgraded the phone's firmware, then you need to reinstall the music... which is crap, cos with a phone like the N95, I've already upgraded the firmware 3 times. Also, it didn't work when I tried to synch the music from WMP 11 again... WMP just will not do it. So the conclusion I came to was that it is not necessarily the N95 that is causing the problems, its WMP and DRM that are to blame as well. I've given up on DRM completely - the little music I had that had DRM I burnt to CD and then ripped back and re-synched, thus removing DRM. And I now just buy CDs and buy DRM-free tracks online, which is the way the industry is going, IMO.

I'm happy to read that many music-download-shops now start to sell non-DRM-protected mp3 and wma files......
