Unhappy How can I crack drm wma files?


I recently ran across a website that said it had free music to download. The name is iMesh, and the downloading process was fast. I was really impressed by the speed. Well three days after using iMesh, I wanted to convert the music to mp3. I couldn't convert. It kept saying i needed to buy the rights, blah, blah, blah. I have been trying several programs, such as tuneclone, DRM Buster, amongst others. I just got a copy of Ubuntu this past Friday and I was wondering if I could play the drm wma files in Ubuntu and not have this problem? Does any one know if there is such way to crack the drm?

<<mod edit: e-mail removed per replies below>>

Thank you in advance

The only thing to add is that you should not post your e-mail in the open like this. In the interest of the LQ rules quoted above--and to help save you from spam--I'm removing it.
