Not so much as a solution as a reason why it won't work. The Olympus web site FAQs says that you can't transfer onto an audio CD because the 4-bit depth used to expand the recorder memory can't be converted to a format that is compatible with audio CDs.
I'd be very pleased to find someone who's found a way round this as I brought this recorder to record my study notes, put them onto CD and play them to myself in the car, walking the dog, during lunchbreak etc.

This issue may occur if the license for the track you are trying to play has expired on the device. If you currently subscribe to a music subscription service, connect the device and sign into the account to refresh your license to allow for playback. You may need to do this once during each billing period to listen to the subscription music you have transferred. If you are no longer a subscriber to the service where you downloaded the file from, you can delete the song from your portable player to prevent this error from occurring each time you try to play the song back.
If the issue happens with all the songs in the Player, format the Player and transfer the songs again using the Software or by dragging using the Windows Explorer.
Microsoft Windows Media Player is a free media player software that comes with the personal computer version of Windows operating systems. The software supports basic file formats such as WMV, WMA, AVI, MP3, and ASF. The player included in Windows XP gives you the power to create your own CDs, search and organize digital media on your PC, and copy files to portable devices such as CDs and pen drives. Fix Windows Media Player Problems Corrupted and missing DLLs files, incorrect registry entries, and outdated files are some of the causes of Windows Media Player errors. Covered here are a few steps that you can take to fix common problems. C00D11CD: Unknown Error C00D11CD errors occur when an operating system component or some other program encounters an error and does not communicate it to Windows Media Player. Due to its generic nature and multiple reasons for occurrence, there is no specific solution to this problem. If you encounter the error when trying to play an AVI or MPEG 2 file, then most likely, you do not have the correct codec version installed on your system. To fix a Windows Media Player problem related to codec, search for the required codec on the Internet, download it, and update it on your system to play the required file. Windows Media Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) to authorize copying files to a CD or to download them from an online music store. If you do not have DRM authority to copy a particular song, you will not be able to play it and the error will pop up. Windows Media Player uses the wmadmoe.dll file to encode files. If something goes wrong with this file, you may get the c00d11cd error when you try to copy songs from a CD to your hard disk. To fix a Windows Media Player problem in this situation, you must register the DLL file by running the command ‘regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll’. 80040155: Interface Not Registered If this error occurs when you try to burn songs into a CD, then the most probable cause is that the required player files are no longer registered on your system. To fix this error, try to reinstall your Windows Media Player or download and install a newer version of the player, if available on the internet. 800C2EE2: Action timed out This error occurs when your Windows Media Player is unable to connect to a server due to problem in the network, and therefore cannot play protected audio/video files that you download from an online music store. Incorrect Internet Explorer security settings might be the cause of this problem. To fix this, open Internet Explorer and select Tools-Internet Options-LAN Settings. Next, clear the Automatically detect settings check box. C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the files The error usually occurs when you try to rip CDs to MP3 format. Existence of entries from an earlier player version in the registry might be the reason behind this problem. One way to fix this problem is by adjusting the audio quality. However, if you want to maintain the audio quality, then to fix this Windows Media Player problem, open the Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and navigate to the subkey given below. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Sett ings\MP3Encoding Here, open ‘LowrateSample’ and delete the value displayed in the Value Data box. Select OK and exit Registry Editor. Many times errors also occur when there are corrupt files on the system or there are invalid DLL entries and other related incorrect entries in the system registry. For this, you must try to download reliable registry cleaner software from the Internet and scan your registry for invalid entries. Using registry cleaner software, you can easily and efficiently fix Windows registry problems, and make your PC free from irritating errors. Errors can occur in Windows Media Player due to outdated files, missing or corrupt DLL files and incorrect registry entries. Most of the time, you can fix Windows Media Player problems by updating missing files or by upgrading the player to a later version. Additionally, to prevent registry-related problems, you can use a registry cleaner software to regularly scan the registry and eliminate invalid DLL entries and corrupt values from it.
Place the music files that you want to transfer into the My Music folder of your computer - Windows will re-read them, and then you can synchronize to your device. Also, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged on the mp3 player - it probably isn't, but just check.
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
If you didnt change the default settings for Windows Media Player, it is set to "copy protect my music", which would cause this error.
To change the settings go to Windows Media Player>Tools>Options>Rip Music and uncheck the "copy protect my music" box.
You will need to delete the previously transferred music from your device, re-rip them to your PC, then re-transfer them to your device.
Best of Luck.
Here is the message I was getting; "Windows Media Player cannot synchronize or burn the protected file because the Player cannot verify that the license is valid. A problem occured while contacting the Internet to determine the current date and time."
I looked at my device, Sansa e260, and the time was off by 1 hr. and 10 min. I corrected the time on the device and it worked fine after that......
When using your media player... you need to first figure out if you are using windows media player 9 or windows media player 10. Also what windows are you using on your computer, that makes a difference as well... Make sure you have the mp3 player plugged in properly and then...Once you are in your windows media player go to your lib tab... soon as you are in there then on the right side there should be section on where you could build a lib list. Meaning you should be able to pick the songs in your lib and just drag them over. On the bottom you should see something that says sync... Once you've choose your songs and dragged them over... all you should have to do is press the sync button and it will do all the work for you from there. And it should let you know when its complete...mine does. Hope I could help you.
