Q. Why canít I upload my MP3 / WMA files from my iFP player?
A. Due to copyright protection laws that apply towards our technology, media
files (MP3 / WMA files) cannot be uploaded from an iFP player to a PC. All
other non-media files (documents, images, etc.) can be uploaded to a PC from
the iFP player.
As you correctly state it's not (optional) DRM as such, but it sure is a
lockdown. I also stand corrected on the Mac issue. Getting to the off-topic
bit, why don't we just leave it at this?

T.J.
