What do you mean by 'protected' ? To what extent, you've noted that it has a password but could you decribe it abit further ?

well when i select its properties it sais its protected from another computer and you can click a button to unlock it but it still doesnt work on windows media player. it is m4p format. you can use itunes (and only itunes) to unlock it via password but still only listen to it on itunes i just want to know how i can get past this and listen to it on media player

idiots...idiots...,

That's DRM, Digital Rights Management Software...you cannot play it because it is a "protected song". Not by password protection, you idiot. Try using JHymn...it works for all versions of songs before the 6.0 update...
