Windows Portable Devices is a Microsoft driver technology that supports a wide range of portable devices such as MP3 players and digital cameras. The WPD Shell Service Object is installed as part of Windows Media Digital Rights Management, which is used when writing or transferring copyrighted information to a portable device. Microsoft's DRM is only one of multiple Digital Rights Management technologies employed to protect artistic property in the digital world but it has become popular because of the large numbers of Internet users seeking to download music and video content and play it or transfer it to their portable devices on computers using Windows operating systems. The WPD Shell Service Object dynamic link library (dll) is an essential part of Windows Media Digital Rights Management and of the Windows operating system, (including Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8), and should not be disabled.
