do you still pay for your napster service, if not, that why your tracks have expired, if you do, then just hook up your mp3 player to your PC and it should update the licenses on the tracks
if you dont pay for napster anymore, one thing that maybe worth trying is setting the clock on your PC back to a date prior to the subscription expiration date and try playing a few songs without being connected to the internet. If the PC is not online, Windows has no way of telling if the time change is to correct a wrong time or deliberate.
I am not sure what Windows Media Player does when the expiration comes. If it modifies the song itself, then it may still be possible to play songs that you haven't tried playing after the expiration date if you set the clock back.
However, if Windows Media Player logs that the licenses have expired in its license database, then there is pretty much no hope in reactivating them by setting the clock back. Much like setting the clock back on expired shareware software
Finally, if you are willing to resume your Napster subscription, then chances are that your music will re-activate once your subscription is live.
If you downloaded the songs onto your player free from a mp3 website, there songs most likely were protected by a liscense which only allows you to listen to the for a certain of time (usually a month) as a trial so you will buy the songs to keep it as long as you like. If you do not wish to purchase the songs from that place you are getting them from, you can either go to another free website without a liscense on their songs and get them there or purchase them from another site you like.
Before you select to rip the songs, edit them by renaming them - song - artist - album etc... then rip the music. Right click and select edit, then rename, press the tab key to go to the next selection artist etc.. and rename. You can also rip the music then go online to let media player find the details, but they do not always find the right details for the correct albums, so I always rename my albums myself
Did you get Microsoft word/office installed with your PC? Or as a free download?
If so you likely have received what is called a "Trial" version. Which is only valid for a certain period of time. Once the time expires the want you to either pay for a permanent liscense or stop using the software.
If you believe you HAVE a permanent liscense, then you can contact Microsoft to clear things up and get an key to reactivate office. If it WAS a trial then you have 2 choices.
1.) Contact Microsoft to purchase a permanent liscense
2.) Get one of the "Free" office suites that are out there Suns "OpenOffice" seems to be one of the most popular of the free opensource office replacements and has just about every function that MS Office does.
Three possibilities: 1) your music service subscription expired (or the license on your songs expired) - solution: update them 2) You switched from msd to mtp mode - solution: switch to AUTO 3) Your DB has been corrupt - solution: update the firmware from the manufacturer's website, or format the player - see my help file on this under my profile
For the certificate expired problem, check the time and date to make sure it is correct. If it is not the you need to replace the BIOS battery on your laptop. (Not something I recommend you trying yourself, take to a Local shop) I suggest uninstalling then reinstalling msn messenger.
