    It seems to me that your Wma files have been protected by a licensing component called DRM protection. It forces you to pay for a licence to view the files.
    In the past, a hacker was able to crack this protection and access the files without paying for a license, but microsoft, or whoever the developer of DRM is, upgraded to a newer version. There is no known way as of now to get around this protection, but I am hopeful that someone will find a way soon.
