E475 and overdrive audio books
Hi all,

This is my first post here.

I just got a E475 and tried to download a book to it via overdrive media console (drm wma). I can transfer to other devices without problem, but receive the follow error when transferring to the E475:

Error 0xC00D2772: A problem has occurred in obtaining the device's certificate.

I have had other Sony devices with no problems, but now only get the error. I have reset the device and even reformatted it, but to no avail.

Can it be that this model does not support DRM protected WMA files?

Any suggestions?

Welcome To ABi:)

It doesn't seem the E475 supports protected content. I dug up the Help Guide here http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-...=3#/manualsTab. In the Specifications and Transferring Contents Using Media Go sections it states that protected content isn't supported.
The specifications say

(*3) Copyright protected WMA/WMV files cannot be played back.

(*4) Copyright protected AAC-LC files cannot be played back.
in it's footnotes for WMA and AAC protected files.

Thanks for the answer, and the welcome! I have been lurking here ever since I bought my first sansa years ago.

I dug around a bit, but didn't see that footnote.

Any idea why they would make an about-face like that? I didn't even check this time since my previous sony (the s545 which was almost identical) did support it. For that matter, why would a device not support drm these days??

Is there any work around that I can use, or alternative software that can be installed on the device?

I appreciate the help.
