The NWE503 Walkma player is compatible only with the ATRAC3/ATRAC3+ and MP3 songs. These songs format will work only when transferred through the supplied SonicStage Software.You can download the latest version of the SonicStage Software from here Transferring the songs using the SonicStage Software will resolve the issue.
The subscription/license on the songs could have lapsed, or you downloaded tracks that have play rights (will play on your computer) but not transfer rights (transfer rights allow you to play a particular song on an mp3 player). Songs that are in true mp3 format will not give you such problems.
As the question was stated, that is the best answer I can give you for now.
The songs that you transferred have a DRM license on them that does not have transfer rights (i.e.: the songs you downloaded can be played on a computer, but cannot be transferred to an mp3 player). The GoGear is giving you this message in hopes that you will Sync it with Windows Media Player and acquire the said transfer rights.
If you download songs that are in true mp3 format, you will not have this problem. Also, if you choose a music service that allows mp3 transfer at your subscription levwel, and continue to pay for that subscription every month, it will also clear your problem.
The songs are in the wrong format - it does not recognize iTunes songs or DRM-encrypted songs which do not have "transfer rights" (many msuic services - especially free ones but also paid ones - give you WMA's that have "play rights" -i.e. you can play them on your computer; but if they do not have transfer rights, they will show up in your player, yet not play correctly/skip).
Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 Format and you will never have this problem.
The songs are perhaps in the wrong format. This player will not accept copy-protected iTunes (AAC) files. Also, the license on your files may not permit transfer to mp3 players. Definitely check the bitrates on your files, b/c this Sony can only accept certain ranges of bit rate.
This is my general spiel about music formats, but note that your Sony does accept DRM-protected files with transfer rights, so not everything in the following blurb applies fully to you:
All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize.Everymusic file is in a certain format.The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC (iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.In addition, every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.By far the most common issue is that the music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file formats).Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats.Every Mp3 Player is different.You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes.When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.If you want to know what file type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option “Properties” from the menu. Mp3 player product documentation is not straightforward.If a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing system for WMA files.It is used extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster, and others.Not all DRM licenses are created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and “transfer rights.”Play rights mean that you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.Burn rights mean that the song can be burned to CD.Transfer rights mean that the song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.Then, there are unlimited licenses and limited licenses.Limited licenses only allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time length ranges from a few days to several months or longer. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
Are you getting a specific error message when you try to transfer songs? Does it look like they are transferrring, and then do not play? Are you just looking for the program that you would use to transfer songs? I would suggest Windows Media Player. Is iTunes your music service? If so, they will not work with this mp3 player.
You can also drag and drop the Mp3 or WMA files from Windows Explorer: Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mps player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing
Check the format of the song - this player will play mp3 or wma, but if your wma's do not have "transfer rights" then you cannot transfer them to this or any other player.
Songs from most music services have what is called DRM encryption on them - it is a license that will only allow you to do certain things with the song. Your songs probably have play rights, but not transfer rights. Upgrade your music service subscription.
