cant use bbc iplayer files

Post by harrya146 »

My new 70 tablet is great but I am still working out how to use it use it. It accepts music and pictures from windows media player but bbc iplayer files are marked as requiring device to play subscription files, with the 70 in the sync menu it comes up as device not authorised for subscription files. I have checked and rechecked the privacy boxes are all correctly ticked to allow media rights but am still informed that I dont have enough media rights. I am using windows 7 so tried everything again in windows xp with the same results, no one else seems to have this problem or has not mentioned it in the forum.

The files have DRM on them, which means Archos can't play them - there is a solution, it's called 'get iplayer' and allows download of iplayer files without the DRM for transfer onto other devices.
