The DRM license on those songs was fixed term - renew the subscription to your music svc to get them to work again.

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.

2 problems: (1) battery (2) skipping songs on playlist


There is a random mode - check the menu settings to see if it has been activated. Alternatively, you coould have downloaded fixed-term license songs.

No license to play/sync license from PC - Zen Creative V Plus


Try putting the songs on your PC if they are not there already. Delete all the songs from your Zen, then reload them.

"invalid license"


Solved the problem...returned the player to Walmart and chose a different brand. Spent too many hours with tech support and online...decided it was probably a defective MP3 player. Thanks for checking!

CANT LOAD ONTO MY MP3 PLAYER


RCA TH1100 series - won't play/display all songs:
There are two possibilities - corrupt DB or songs in wrong format.
If it is a corrupt DB, then go to RCA's website for the latest firmware upgrade.
http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=25
Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format
Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. 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. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.

It won't let me listen to music


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 sureyou are connected to the internet first).

Can't put new music on player


Hi Raxter. As long as you can save files to the player (seems like pictures and video work just fine, right?), then the player is not experiencing any corruption or firmware issues. Perhaps the issue lies with the songs you're synchronizing to the player. There are several reasons why you would encounter errors when synchronizing songs to the player: (1) File type is not supported by the player -- MP3 (with a bit rate of 128 Kbps) and WMA files (with a bit rate of 64 Kbps) are the only supported music file type. MP3 music normally converted via iTunes is not guaranteed to work on this player. (2) Windows Media Player 10 is the only tested Microsoft player version to work on this player (trust me, I've had my bouts with other Windows Media Player versions lol.) Version 11 works, but I have had issues with the player experiencing errors when syncing songs. (3) If the songs are licensed or subscription, it's probably best that you use the subscription provider's media software to "synchronize" the songs into the player (like Rhapsody or Napster player. Music Match often causes the player to "restart" -- I have no idea why, better call them). Some music providers are unable to actually support the player (or recognize it for that matter). It would be best if you contacted the subscription provider to give you instructions on how to synchronize the songs from their website. If your songs are non-licensed songs (like songs from ripped audio CDs, Limewire, etc), then it's best to switch the player's mode to MSC and transfer the songs by simply "Dragging and Dropping" or "Copy/pasting" the songs to your player. To switch your player's mode to MSC, navigate the Menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode I hope that would resolve the problem you're encountering with your player. There is another way to reset your player, but I'm hoping these options would actually let you transfer files successfully. Let me know the results.

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.
