Some songs I've downloaded on my Coby mp-c7082 played just fine for a while, but now it says Request DRM Time in the window when I try to play them. What does this mean and how can I get the songs to play?

Re: Request DRM Time
The DRM license on your songs was for a fixed term - right click an individual song that is giving you this symptom, click on Properties, and click on "license" or "digital rights" or however your particular configuration words it, and acquire a new license. you may have to renew your music service subscription to renew the DRM license, and then resync the player one more time.

Your song (.WMA) are copy protected by 'Microsoft Windows Media digital rights management (DRM)' and appears to be requesting a license key. Solution: remove DRM (for song that you own ...) by some third party meanssoftware (including burning them on CD with appropriate options) or use alternative songs encoding (such as .mp3) that do not this protection.
Normally becuase the old mp3 players just play it whatever. Newer ones have the DRM built in and can restrict playback. You should attempt to get DRM Free copies of the Music you wish to listen to . (PSST Forum W.org & Jamglue.com,and its not stealing since you already own the music)
Sorry if this is awkward. It is however the only way to go about things.
If your adding music to the device and its not playing, its because your audio files are not the correct format. This unit only plays MP3 audio or Uncopyrighted Windows Media Audio files. You can test this by connecting the MP3 player, copy one of the sampe audio files under 'My Music' location on your computer and paste it on your mp3 player. It will play the audio fine.
How to play: Hold in play button until red ligh is steady, then press Play again to start the audio.
Make sure you remove any audio file that is not the correct format.
to check format of song:
right click the song, go to properties, under properties it will say 'Type of File', make sure this says MP3, thats the safest way to go.
The software, esp the AMV converter necessary for converting movies, can be found by entering your model # at: http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=doc I had to click on support -> mp3 & Mp4 and then the exact model # - I couldn't get to it through the regular mp3/mp4 page - trust me, it's there
It supports AMV format only, so it must go through the AMV converter on the Coby website
Use the video conversion software utility included on the Installation CD to create video files that
are suitable for playback on the MP-C7052.
Your player supports AMV files with the following specifications:
160 x 128 resolution at 15 frames per second (fps)
The video conversion software will not recognize ALL types of video files, so you will have to find a free converter that will convert files of one type to AVI or another recognized video type.
Look at the help files in the video converter software for far more detail than we could ever hope to provide here.
I have been able to sync mine, though it wouldn't transfer some songs. It would sit there trying to convert it but wouldn't. So I tried the alternate way to get them on. I just did a drag and drop and all the songs played fine. I just had to be sure to hold the play/hold/stop button for about six seconds before it would turn on.
BTW all of the songs including the ones windows wanted to convert played fine this way.
you have to manually add them.
Go to my computer, then click on your mp3 players drive name, then go find your pictures, copy them, then paste them on your mp3 player. That should do it.
Windows Media Player does not support synchronizing images or videos.
