Drm packager not helping! :(


i've been trying to set up mp3 ringtones on my new w380a, but it didn't work and i figured it was just because of fido so i used the drm packager and it still didn't work. then i tried to convert the mp3 files into m4a files but then when i tried to save them on my computer, they just ended up saving as mp3 files and i was still unable to set them as ringtones.

would someone be able to help me?
thanks a lot! :D

My philips gogear mp3 player won't play my music because it says that the DRM licence is not available, how do I solve this problem?

Hello Friend,
Your player does not support copyright protected music.
To avoid this error, you can:
  • Download music which is not subject to copyright protection.
  • Deselect the option Copy protect music and click OK before you start ripping music from CD.

Best Regards,

have the newest version of bitpim
make sure you have the drivers for the USB cable you are using.
open bitpim
let it find the phone(it will come up as other CDMA phone)
click FILESYSTEM on the left at the bottom
expand the folder
click dload
right click on lg_mysound.dat and save it to your desktop
after you save it right click lg_mysound.dat in bitpim and delete it
now click brew
click media
click lk
click ms

now drop the songs you want to use as ringers in this file. they will automaticlly load into your phone. it isnt the fastest process but it works. 

after they are done loading onto the phone, unhook USB cable from computer, power the phone off and then back on.

the items you just transferred with now be in the my audio file where they need to be to assign them for individual ringers.


everytime you wnat to add new ringers to the phone you have to complete all the steps above, even the deleting that one certain file. not a very hard process and has worked well for me. 

good luck and happy mp3 loading songs into the phone as ringers.

How to use ringtone as mp3

If the phone is a Rogers or Fido variant then it will not be able to use user created or third party MP3 files as ringtones. This is due to the Rogers software customization, which uses DRM to restrict content use. This uses a software restriction method known as DRM (digital rights management) to control what and how content can be used. The provider places their own software on the phone which restricts the use of MP3 files as ringtones to those purchased directly through them or limited to a size of 600kb. Most carriers now enforce DRM, through customized software on the phones, to restrict how certain content is used. Unless a file is digitally signed with the carriers key or within some other specification set out by the carrier, it will not be usable as a ringtone. You should contact your service provider for more information on DRM and other content restrictions they have placed on your phone. You may still have the option to use other file formats such as midi, wav, mp4, m4a, and, unrestricted AAC.
You can also have your phone flashed / debranded, to allow for custom ringtone use.

You could also use the DRM packager on Sony Ericsson's Developer site to bypass these restrictions. It may be a bit complicated, but once you get it, it's simple.

Use the following link for detailed instructions:

The DRM packager can be found at:
