You probably need to update the firmware of the player to version 2.9, which you can get off the philips website. This is the page for the player which has the firmware and updated musicmatch software they want you to use. Not sure if it will work with Yahoo. http://www.usasupport.philips.com/consumer/productDocuments.html?ProductCode=PSA220/17&subCat=NIKE_PHILIPS_AUDIO_PLAYERS_SU_US_CONSUMER

I have the nwz-a816 and if have had this issue a couple of times... It seems to give me that message on songs I have downloaded from Napster... I just connected it to the computer that the Napster application is on and it corrects this problem... Hope this helps...

I was experiencing similar probs with trying to transfer original CD's to my Sony Walkman MP3.
Try the following:
Open Windows Media Player - Select RIP / Options / RIP Music Tab & then uncheck the Copy Protect Music option box.
Hope this works.

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.
