DCF File Format

DRM content format

DCF is an audio file used for copy-protection. DCF files contain media information which is encoded with Digital Rights Management (DRM) copy protection. DCF files are used by some cell phones for saving protected media files. DCF files can usually only be opened by phones that are authorized and DRM-compatible. DCF files are similar to .DM files, except that the file which allows the media to be opened is contained in a different location.

MIME: application/vnd.oma.drm.dcf

Telstra where I buy my music from on my phone sell music in this format now. The problem is I can only play it on my phones original music player. It is a crap music player because it sounds glitchy. I down loaded a great musicplayer but it won't play the dcf. format.

I was wanting to use one of my ring tones as an "alert" sound on my yahoo msngr. Just that the one I wanted to use has a .dcf file format which can't be opened/played by media player. Unsupported file type. Is there any way to convert this file type so it can be played by my media player & then used on my messenger?
