Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have a Go Gear MP3 player (SA 3125/37). I'm trying to get it to stop showing that it needs a drm license for some (not all) songs downloaded from my computer. These songs came from about 200 cds, and about 50-75 were bought from walmart. What's going on??? I want to delete everything from the player and start over, first with the appropriate licenses so all music is playable???

There is a small reset button on the bottom but you need something like a needle to press it. Also , many of my customers have found this drm message  when try to  open up the  go gear from their  computer and drag and drop songs and videos.  it has not had any problems after reset is done. ----------------------------- but if that does not supports then follow this -------------- This player definitely supports drm, but there are different versions of drm. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. 

To fix this problem, you will need to convert those non-supported DRM files to Mp3 files using Mp3 conversion software.

please do rate the solution.keep updated.thanks.

Philips mp3 go gear, i can put songs on but then when i come to play it says media engine error.drm licence not available.


When the message 'Error' or 'License Issue' shows, it is referring to the DRM (Digital Rights Management) licences which are commonly found when downloading files. This is a method the music companies use to protect their music

Media engine error! DRM License


These songs must have been purchased online. Itunes, or many online MP3 stores do this to prevent piracy. The songs can only be played on the PC that purchased them. Either buy the music from a DRM free site or find a DRM ripper, which maybe illegal in some locations.

I can not download my songs


The GoGear SA 6045 is not compatible with iTunes. As iTunes moves toward DRM-free music, there are a few GoGear models that will work with it, but the SA6045 is not one of them. iTunes format is also known as AAC format. There are no GoGear's that are compatible with DRM-protected AAC format, but a few are compatible with DRM-free AAC's. Sorry.

You will have to find songs that are in Mp3 format from a different music service (or from CD).

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.

DRM not supported


This player definitely supports drm, but there are different versions of drm. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license.

To fix this problem, you will need to convert those non-supported DRM files to Mp3 files using Mp3 conversion software.

Request DRM Time


The DRM license on your songs was for a fixed term - right click an individual song that is giving you this symptom, click on Properties, and click on "license" or "digital rights" or however your particular configuration words it, and acquire a new license. you may have to renew your music service subscription to renew the DRM license, and then resync the player one more time.

Sakar or iConcepts mp3 not working????


Walmart and many other sites sells songs that are DRM encrypted, meaning they are copy protected. Your MP3 player will not play these unless it is DRM 9 / 10 compatable. The purchase license permits you to download and play in the first device, when copied to another device the DRM prohibits playback in the second device.

Wanting to play WMA extension on this Philips Player


There are a few different possibilities.

1)Your subscription to your digital music service such as Napster, etc has expired. Sorry - unless you renew your subscription, you will not be able to play these songs again.
2) Your songs have DRM-encryption on them. To check and see, right click on an individual song name in Windows Media Player, and click on "License" or "Digital Rights"; if the affected songs have DRM encryption, then get DRM-removal software.
3) Your songs do NOT have DRM-encryption on them. In this instance, follow the procedure for item#2, except click on the link in the License or digital Rights tab that says "acquire license" (make sure you are connected to the internet first).
