Setting the DRM Time on a MPman MPCS157

I bought a MPman MPCS157 2GB MP3 Player from last week. It can with an orange slip saying that before I use it I have to set the DRM Time. The process that is written is not working. There are symbols on the oraange slip that are'nt on the MP3 Player. They have told me to contact you to see if you can solve the problem. Apparently if I dont set the DRM Time before using the MP3 the playlist will not playback.
Im leaving the country on Monday 14th January so please help me asap.

SOURCE: MP3 Player Malfunction

Your playlist shouldnt have been erased as when u update from one music program to another all of the music files ie wav, mp3, ect is suppose to redirect to the new proggy unless you tell it not to as some do ask you if you wanna associate older files with the new proggy . If you say no it wont erase them so they are there somewhere on the putre. What you should do is try to do a search for all your file formats one at a time such as in search type .MP3 do a search Type .wav ect ect Try this and if there not there they have be erased and wont recover them unless you wanna spend big bucks on data recovery and thats not feasable. Now with the player you sure the unit is operating properly as music or data just dosent dissappear into thin air?? You may have a crack in the memory curcuit or a defect in the processor??. Unfortunatly its not worth on most of these types of players . good Luck

SOURCE: My philips gogear mp3 player won't play my music

Hello Friend,
Your player does not support copyright protected music.
To avoid this error, you can:

  • Download music which is not subject to copyright protection.
  • Deselect the option Copy protect music and click OK before you start ripping music from CD.

Best Regards,

SOURCE: I have a Gogear aria black phillips 8bg mp3 player..playlist help

This is a good little player (although I don't kow why tey dont' include the actual manual for it)

It took me a bit BUT I found the manual online:

After you've created and saved your playlists...then clear the sync pane.

Then on the far left where all your playlist names are...highlight the ones you want and drag them into the sync menu. then click "Start sync".

After it's done I promise you all your playlists will be there complete with the music you added to the list

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.

Speedo MP3 player wont play

Reformat the player. Then when you plug it in your computer toggle the bottons back and forth. Also down load the Vista version for the computer, it works for xp also.

My Samsung YP-U3JQP 2GB MP3 player skips past most of the tracks.

Many WMA's are DRM-protected - the DRM-protected tracks that you have loaded may not have transfer rights, even though they will play fine on a computer. The best bet is to download only songs that are in mp3 format. Another option, which is illegal, is to buy a DRM-stripper and strip your WMA's of the DRM-protection - but, it is illegal, costly, and time-consuming.

Thge SA6045 does not support DRM protected files. If you are downloading these files from the internet, then you'll have to look elsewhere for files.

If you are ripping your own CDs to .MP3 or .WMA with Windows Media Player, then you need to change a setting in Windows Media Player.

Open Windows Media Player. If visible, click on "Tools" then options. If the menus are not visible, right-click at the top of the Media Player Window, then select "Tools" and click options.

Click on the "Rip CD" or "Rip Music" tab (depending on version).

Remove the tick from the box next to "Copy Protect Music" (or similar)

This will stop DRM protection on any further tracks ripped.

You will need to rip any DRM tracks again.
