The license on the songs that you have transferred to your mp3 player have an expired DRM license. The only way to "unexpire" the license is to refresh your license through the music service that you downloaded the songs from. If you have let your subscription lapse, the licenses will stay expired.

I have a Sony MP3 Player Walkman NW-E005F. I am getting a message displayed on the walkman: 'DRM Error' that is preventing many songs from being played. Can I have some assistance please!


It means the Digital Rights to the song have expired.

From Sony's site:
"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."

My walkman bean player shows a message CANNOT PLAY ,when i try to play a song.


if it happens with one single song it's because the file type is not formatted, you'll need to convert it (try mp3 :) if it happens with all of your songs first try checking their type if it's okay, try formatting your walkman and putting new songs

Not working


The license on the songs has expired, and that's the problem with DRM-protected WMA's. You will need to renew the license through the music service from which you downloaded the songs. If your subscription has lapsed, you will need to renew it. Then, you'll have to delete the songs on your Walkman, and reload them once you have updated the license.

If you only download and transfer files in mp3 format you will never have this problem, and you can keep the songs forever.

Mp3 player won't play


That is the problem with services that give you DRM-protected WMA's - as soon as the subscription lapses, the song cannot be played on your mp3 player anymore. The only way around the problem is to either: a) renew your subscription, or b) get a music service that gives you DRM-free songs, preferably a service that gives you the songs in mp3 format.

Error message: "Cannot play; the license is expired"


I went to www.sony.com and was able to find the solution. If your songs were downloaded from services similar to Napster then you will have to log back into the service to refresh the licenses on the songs. If you no longer are subscribing to the service then you will need to delete the songs from your player. If you need further information you can find it on the Sony website.

The walkman malfunctioned!!! please help!!!


Hi there, one of the problems you have is that there is not much you can access from via your phone, so often the easiest (although not speediest) solution is to re-upload the songs. Have you tried adding another song, playing it, and seeing if that song will play successfully? If it does, then I would suggest deleting the other songs, and uploading them to your phone again. If this is not possible (because you downloaded them straight from mobile network), upload them to a PC and see if the songs will play - if they do, save them to PC, reformat your card (my computer -> right click on card name -> format) and then put them back on your phone. Unfortunately if they wont play on PC either, the chances are they have been corrupted and you may have to contact your download source for a refund or new copies. If after trying these options you are still stuck, try a) a mates memory card in your phone, and b) your memory card in a mates phone. If a works and b doesnt, contact your memory card supplier. If b works and a doesnt, then contact your phone manufacturer. Hope this helps and isnt too confusing - Chris.
