How to burn a (legally permitted) DRM video (wmv)

Hi all,

I have some video files in .wmv format, which have Microsoft's DRM copy protection. The license for these videos DOES allow burning the video to CD. But what program will do this? Windows Media Player only burns audios (and will do so if they have DRM Licenses that permit that). Sonic RecordNow (version 7) doesn't burn video either. I've tried some others that either don't burn video and one which just says "can't copy DRM protected video" (even though the license DOES permit this type of copying).

Any suggestions? Is there anything free, or do I need some fancy program like Nero or whatever?

Thanks in advance!

After buying some music using WMP, I've found that their protection installed on each file is a b**** to get rid of. Considering nothing seems to want to burn it, it seems as if Microsoft doesn't want you burning it (giving you the ability to spread it everywhere).

I have Nero and I'm pretty sure DRM isn't a type you can burn to video.
