Hello, I am trying to protect my music from being copied from external hard drives but I still need to play the music on these hard drives. simple would be great.

you could put the files into a password protected or "hidden" folder, then put a shortcut to them all in a separate "visible" folder... OR, you could have the media player derive the information from a specific filepath (aka, yrou hidden/password protected folder).

I might be able to help more, if you tell me the purpose, but that is completely up to you :)

You must copy a file to memory to play it....think about it....

This is just like the old question "how can I stop people from stealing my web images", and the answer is "don't post them!"
