Can I transfer DRM WMA files directly to Android?

Let's first look at what audio formats does android devices support:

Audio formats: AAC, AAC+, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, FLAC, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, MIDI

Obviously Android does not support WMA files, to play DRM WMA files on Android, you should firstly remove the DRM and convert WMA format to MP3 or WMA to AAC that Android supports.

And to convert WMA to MP3 or AAC, you need an audio converter, I recommend you Noteburner audio converter, which can not only remove the DRM from iTunes m4p music and convert m4p to mp3 for most media devices, but also can convert wma to mp3, wma to aac for your Android device. And here below is the step by step tutorial to put WMA songs to Android device:

Step 1. Download WMA converter for free and run as administrator to install it

Step 2. Choose target format (MP3 for example)and output folder

1. On the main window of NoteBurner, click the Settings button, a dialogue box will pop-out.

2. Browse to choose a file folder for storing the converted songs. 3. Choose MP3 as output format.

4. Go to MP3 tab and check the ID3Tag options.

5. Click the OK button to save the changes.

Step 3. Set NoteBurner as the default CD burner for Windows Media Player

1. Go to the main window of Windows Media Player 2. Click the Burn tab 3. Choose the CD Drive (G:) -- Audio CD* as current CD burner.

Step 4. Edit a WMA songs playlist for burning to MP3

You can choose an already existing WMP playlist, or create a new playlist for burning to MP3.

Tips: Since NoteBurner utilizes virtual CD burning mechanism to convert audio files, it's suggested that one playlist shall contain no more than 74 minutes music, that's approximately 650 MB files, the standard capacity of Compact Disc. If the playlist contains more than 74 minutes, the converted audio tracks might be divided into two or more vitual discs, depending on the number of the songs you add to the playlist.

Step 5. Click Start Burn button to burn the WMA playlist

Click on the Start Burn button to start burning the playlist. All the songs in the playlist will be converted to target format during the virtual burning process.

Step 6. Get the MP3 files and Put the converted WMA songs to your Android device.

The converted playlist and songs will show up on the main window of NoteBurner: Click the Folder button to open the output folder, where you will find the converted MP3 files, and connect your Android Device with your computer via USB, then copy the MP3 songs (Converted WMA songs) to your android device.

Please kindly note: The above process can be carried on only on Windows Media Player 10 or lower.
