Install ubuntu-restricted-extras

also add the medibuntu repo and install w32codecs (I assume 32bit OS, otherwise install w64codecs). Also install gnome-mplayer and vlc

If the music you want to play is a DRM protected .wma file, it can only be played in Windows Media Player.

If it is not DRM protected, then install medibuntu repo , w32codecs and vlc.

Can you help with this problem?
