Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A3000 MP3 Player
Please help me fix my MP3 player NWZ-S615F.
Error message reads: Cannot play; the license is expired
My problem wasn't fixed and I uploaded music from my OWN CD's and it still said "unable to play music; license is expired"

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.

I went to www.sony.com and was able to find the solution. If your songs were downloaded from services similar to Napster then you will have to log back into the service to refresh the licenses on the songs. If you no longer are subscribing to the service then you will need to delete the songs from your player. If you need further information you can find it on the Sony website.

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...
