    Every time I try to play a certain file I get "The hardware license for this content is inconsistent"

    What does that even mean? nd how do I fix it?

    I believe this can be at least 2 things.

    The first is that it is a protected WMV file, and microsoft is too "busy" to release a mac version of media player that can support the media.

    The second is that it may be a virus, a friend of mine got one that messed up his system, but on my mac, that message would be displayed.

    I think its the former, because I downloaded it from an official web site so I doubt there are any viruss on it....damn, MS sucks...
