I'm not sure what's the subscription service to which you are subscribed. However I've given you the steps below. Try whatever suits for you.
This error typically occurs when the DRM licensed files have expired.
SOLUTION 2 - Songs downloaded from music subscription service If the songs were downloaded from a music subscription service (e.g., Napster, Rhapsody, Best Buy music store, etc.), follow these steps: 1. Make sure that your account subscription is updated and active. 2. Put the device in MTP mode and connect to the computer, then log in to your music subscription account. 3. Renew the licenses of your tracks For Rhapsody: On the Rhapsody console, right-click on your device and select License
1. Check the date & time on your PC & on your mp3 player. They should be one and the same.
2. You need to synchronize your device with rhapsody once in every 30 days. It's a must. Failing to do so, you will not be able to play music in your mp3 player. Here are a few a steps to synchronize your device with rhapsody:
1.Open Rhapsody / Best Buy Digital Music Store and sign in

SOLUTION 3 - Rename the Windows DRM folder
NOTE: The Windows DRM (Digital Rights Management) folder contains licenses for secure media files such as your subscription tracks.
STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the PC to show the hidden files Windows XP: 1. Double-click My Computer. 2. On the Menu bar, click Tools > FolderOptions, and then click the View tab. 3. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to select Show hidden files and folders. 4. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to clear Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 5. Click Apply, and then OK.
Windows Vista: 1. Double-click Computer. 2. Click the Organize button at the upper left corner. 3. Click Folder and Search options. 4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders. 5. Click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box. 6. Click Apply, and then OK.
STEP 2 - Rename the DRM folder 1. Double-click My Computer > C: > Documents and Settings > All Users. 2. Right-click the DRM folder and select Rename. 3. Rename this as OLDDRM. 4. Run the subscription service program you are using and renew the licenses to recreate the DRM folder with new licenses.
STEP 3 - Synchronize your device once more on MTP mode
SOLUTION 4 - Format the player under Windows Media Player.
Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really, the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device.
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.
Unfortunately you are not going to be able to go online to sync your device...All music subscription such as napster and rhapsody require you to sync your device every single month using their actual software..The reason is to prevent customer from cancelling their music subscription..once you cancel your membership all the songs you have on your device will become useless.In another word, you are renting the music from the subscription company...
P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep
There are 2 reason why you would get that error..
1) when you transferred the tracks to the device the licenses didnt transfer...
2) The tracks you transferred are subscription tracks meaning that you have to sync your device each month in order to have those tracks playing...
If you dont have a subscription for the tracks...(you will have to format your device in that case) and also you could have a device certificate problem which can solve by formatting your device or your DRM components maybe bad...you can solve that problem by foramtting updating the firmware on the device..
If you have a subscription you need to download a new track and transfer it to the device again...that should update the licenses for every single tracks...If that doesnt do it you will have to format your device...
I hope this helps...
Please rate accordingly
Thank you Computerrep
That means you will need to transfer one track to your device from rhapsody..the songs you have from rhapsody has a license in them...the licenses get renew every month..that means if you discontinue your service, you are not going to be able to play those songs...just try to transfer one track from rhapsody to your device and that will solve your problems...
