Have you tried plugging your player into the PC and syncing some tracks to see if the licenses get renewed?

SOURCE: no license to play track

That means you will have to sync your devicce in oder to play the songs on the device..what you will have to do is to transfer one new track that you download to your device...then once you finish transfer it the tracks, it should update every single tracks on the device...if that doesnt solve the problem you are having..what you will have to do is to format the player using windows media player then once you format it transfer the tracks over and the should be playing...
Hope that helps

SOURCE: CAN NOT PLAY;LICENSE HAS EXPIRED......

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.

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."

Cannot play says please connect to compliant software and update license information


Hi,

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.
If the issue happens with all the songs in the Player, format the Player and transfer the songs again using the Software or by dragging using the Windows Explorer.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Songs folder appears empty but when device connected to pc all songs visible


The subscription/license on the songs could have lapsed, or you downloaded tracks that have play rights (will play on your computer) but not transfer rights (transfer rights allow you to play a particular song on an mp3 player). Songs that are in true mp3 format will not give you such problems.

As the question was stated, that is the best answer I can give you for now.

That means you will need to transfer one track to your device from rhapsody..the songs you have from rhapsody has a license in them...the licenses get renew every month..that means if you discontinue your service, you are not going to be able to play those songs...just try to transfer one track from rhapsody to your device and that will solve your problems...

Synchronize MP3


In order to play your song you will need to try to transfer one track to that device...once you do that all the songs should acquire new licenses...you need to transfer tracks to your device once a month in order to play the songs...you should be able to play your purchased tracks....if not you might need to format the device inside WMP....then you need to check the licenses on your purchased tracks to make sure they dont have any restrictions...if you have any questions...computerrep@gmail.com

RCA Lyra RD2763 5 GB MP3 player


You have to subscribe to be able to play any tracks downloaded from URGE or REAL or anyplace like that. Once the trial is up you have to pay to be able to hear them. I found out after spending days filling my player full of music. I ended up deleting all and transferring tracks from CD's or actually paying to download tracks.
