There are 2 reason why you would get that error..
1) when you transferred the tracks to the device the licenses didnt transfer...
2) The tracks you transferred are subscription tracks meaning that you have to sync your device each month in order to have those tracks playing...

If you dont have a subscription for the tracks...(you will have to format your device in that case) and also you could have a device certificate problem which can solve by formatting your device or your DRM components maybe bad...you can solve that problem by foramtting updating the firmware on the device..

If you have a subscription you need to download a new track and transfer it to the device again...that should update the licenses for every single tracks...If that doesnt do it you will have to format your device...

I hope this helps...

I get a message that says license has expired for


hi,
If the message appears that your license has expired for some songs, then it means that you have purchased the music online(or free trial) only for a particular period of time (say 2 weeks). after that particular time, you have to purchase the music from the online store where you got it. The rules change according to different countries. Please specify your country to know more and give me a good rating of you find this advice as helpful!

The license on the songs that you have transferred to your mp3 player have an expired DRM license. The only way to "unexpire" the license is to refresh your license through the music service that you downloaded the songs from. If you have let your subscription lapse, the licenses will stay expired.

The license on the songs has expired, and that's the problem with DRM-protected WMA's. You will need to renew the license through the music service from which you downloaded the songs. If your subscription has lapsed, you will need to renew it. Then, you'll have to delete the songs on your Walkman, and reload them once you have updated the license.

If you only download and transfer files in mp3 format you will never have this problem, and you can keep the songs forever.

My MP3 player displays "License Expired" on the screen.


If you let your subscription to Rhapsody expire, you will get this message. If you didn't let your subscriptino expire then you will need to synch the files from Rhapsody itself back onto the player - the licenses have to be renewed once a year for some songs - once a month for others. If your subscriptino ever expires, you can no longer use the songs.

MyMusix PD-6030 MP3 Player says license expired


Are the files MP3 files or WMA files? This sounds like a DRM (digital rights management) limitation of the music you are using. MP3 files don't have DRM - and shouldn't exhibit this problem. WMA files can have licenses associated with them and only allow number of copies to be made for personal use before their license disables further use - as it sounds is occurring in your case.

Error message: "Cannot play; the license is expired"


You will have to either renew your music service subsription, or convert the song to mp3 format. all WMA files have a license - if it is expired, you will get this message.

Error message: "Cannot play; the license is expired"


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.
