There are two ways I can think of.

1- Store all media files in a directory underneath your public_html folder....and use parameters to specify which file that a user wants to download...such as http://yoursite.com/download.php?file=meida1.wma where the download.php file would check user credentials before downloading contents.

2- Use .htaccess mod_rewrite to force all files ending with .wma to forward to a specific page that would check credentials and then allow users to download contents etc.
