    Default HTC One (M8)Help Please with playing music

    Hi all, I have just got my M8 after spending the last few years with Crapple.
    I am having major issues trying to play my music on my new phone.
    I use windows media player to download music to the phones 32 gig memory card but I am finding that the phone will only play about 10 seconds of certain album tracks. It does play all of some different album tracks but not all. I have tried using media monkey and win amp to download but with the same results. I have tried using a couple of different music players to play the music, but again the same problem. I am guessing there may be some setting I can change or something I can do to resolve this but I am at my wits end.
    Beginning to wonder if I have either a bad phone or made a bad move leaving Crapple.
    Please can some one help.
    Thanks in adavnce.

    Welcome to the forums.
    How are you placing the music on your M8? I just drag and drop, and everything works fine. However, I am not using the stock music player app. I am using PowerAmp, which is a paid app but has trial period of 2 weeks as I recall. I have no issues.

    Do these files play ok on a PC? Are they DRM free?

    Hi, all the albums play fine on the pc. It is only when they are on the phone, and I have no idea what DRM is lol

    Have you tried using the normal drag and drop to transfer music?

    I think using windows media player, winamp etc is causing the problem

    I would try another music player from Play.

    iSyncr in the Play Store.

    There is a free version. Plays along well with your iTunes library.

    DRM is Digital Rights Management. A lot of tracks especially .WMA have DRM installed. Your PC is able to check licenses and play those tracks. When transferred to your phone, some tracks may be limited. [inappropriate content removed by moderators]. Then I just drag and drop to my phone and they always work fine, using the stock player.
