Damn....
Is there someone out here that mcan help me with this software issue_
Im not exactly a smart computer/systems person, I just know some stuff like common people.

As some know I work in LG, and the computers we use there are "protected" by this damn software called WaterWall. Which is a controlling outlow information software.. or more commonly called DRM in systems lenguage. So basically what it makes is that it doesn't let you save files in your USB or CD to be read by any other common compuer )except one that has the same software).

This is done so they can protect their internal files and such... but come on, I'm not trying to steal their magic recepy for making LG televisions.. I just want once in a while download an mp3 or video and take it home.


aaragh... I need to disable this think somehow...

I think you are SOL. You would have to find a method that is not one of the ones listed. It seems pretty comprehensive.

The solution is simple... don't download mp3's at work. :)

What about e-mailing to yourself to be picked up at home?

m0x: unluckly I don't have internet at home, and it's not like I'm taking advantage of the network's broadband to downloading tons of mp3 and selling pirate cds or the such. It's only for when sometimes a friend passes a few songs to hear them out.

machawk1: I do that same thing. teh problem is when files are bigger than 10MB, for example 50, 60 or 100MB... my hotmail account doesn'y allow that space in a one email. I'd have to WinRar-rip them off in 10 or more parts... and it take too much time heheh..

meh.. anyways.. it's not like I'm doin something terribly ilegal, it.. uhm... kind of challenges me...

Malkavian - Open your PC up to allow FTP or SSH access and upload the files directly, alleviating e-mailing hassles.
