Hi Frank!

Thank you for your reply!
I remember reading on the Rockbox website that installing it *may* effect in loosing the DRM capability of the player but I hoped that maybe I'll get lucky.
If it's generally causing the lost of this capability, why the description uses the term *might* and not simply states that it's doing so instead?
Or are there other players where this rule does not apply?
Beside Sansa Clip Zip, I also own rockboxed Archos Jukebox Recorder 20 and iRiver H320. Is there any chance to get those DRM files to play on any of these?
Kind regards,
