There is a small reset button on the bottom but you need something like a needle to press it. Also , I have found when I open up my go gear from my computer and drag and drop songs and videos it has not had any problems.

    If you open it up on your computer as a mass storage device, by accessing it through "my computer" you can select all and delete and then select the songs you want and drag and drop

Why wont it let me listen to my music that I have transferred onto my galaxy samsung s phone. I'm getting the message "This item has expired. Connect to PC and download licence" What license????


You have encountered 'DRM' -- Digital Rights Management.
DRM is deployed to all you to play your music on _one_ computer, by granting you a "license" for that computer.
If you move the music-file to another computer, you must EXPORT and then IMPORT the license for that music-file.

Connect your Galaxy Samsung phone to your computer, and it will use the computer to download a license onto the Galaxy Samsung.

It will play for about three days then it says DRM license not avaliable it has done this twice


If you don't have DRM license for your music, it's because you haven't synced your player with the program on your computer in a while.
DRM is on your music because you most likely use a subscription service such as Napster or Rhapsody for your music.
Just plug your player into your computer and sync your device for the DRM license to refresh.

Drm license not available when i was trying to listen to my mp3 it wont let me listen to any type of song.


You need to plug your mp3 into the computer you downloaded your music from to sync it up. Go to that website and if you dont get a pop up asking if you want to sync your device. You should do this at least once a week.

Phillips gp gear will not play music downloaded.


The songs that you transferred have a DRM license on them that does not have transfer rights (i.e.: the songs you downloaded can be played on a computer, but cannot be transferred to an mp3 player). The GoGear is giving you this message in hopes that you will Sync it with Windows Media Player and acquire the said transfer rights.

If you download songs that are in true mp3 format, you will not have this problem. Also, if you choose a music service that allows mp3 transfer at your subscription levwel, and continue to pay for that subscription every month, it will also clear your problem.

Playing Blue ray to my tv on HD pavillion dv9000


You are trying to play a music or movie file that uses DRM copy protection, generally windows media player and other DRM supportive players will try to acquire the license to play the content when you open it. If you are getting this message you eaither do not have the appropriate license to play the file, are not connected to the internet when playing, or their may be a problem with you DRM backup in windows.

I would contact the online store (where you got the file) and ask them about troubleshooting the problem if you believe the DRM license should be valid.

If you got the file from a friend or filesharing service you will not be able to use it and may as well delete it.

MY SANSA WONT SYNC SONGS..


The songs are in the wrong format - they need to be stripped of their DRM license (illegal) or converted to mp3 format.  The best, most legal way to do this is to redownload the songs as an Mp3 file, or re-rip your CD's in Windows Media Player in Mp3 format.
these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music 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.

I can't listen to my SpiralFrog music!!!


That's the problem with DRM licensing. Do yourself a favor - only download mp3 format songs to the player, and you will never have this problem. If you want to use SpiralFrog, delete all songs that are on your mp3 player now, make sure your spiral frog sub allows transfer rights, and reload the songs.

Sync


my guess is that some of the songs you downloaded from limewire or walmart have DRM embedded in them. the ones from walmart you should be able to sync and renew the DRM license, limewire songs ... you're S.O.L.
