Holy bring a question back from the dead 8 years later on a 2005 device of mine. Going through my junk closet I found my old iRiver H320. It's a US model but I had the 1.29 Korean firmware on it with Rockbox loaded on it too. Wanted to start clean and fresh so I reformatted and went back to 1.04 US firmware. Now every time I boot I get the Can't Found DRM Key too and I don't even have any music files on it. I wonder if going from 1.29K firmware to 1.04US firmware has something to do with it or if Rockbox did somethign with the bootloader.

Just did some googling and found this on Rockbox site >> "If your player has a US firmware, then by installing Rockbox you will permanently lose the ability to playback files with DRM." I think just installing international firmware also will remove the DRM feature.

Upgraded again from 1.04US to 1.29K and i don't get the Can't Found DRM Key anymore. Only advantage to the upgrade is being able to watch video files. But this is 2016 now, no one will watch video on a 2" screen on an 11 year old MP3 player. But glad I figured it out.

The DRM key is specific to the songs that you have downloaded, not the mp3 player itself. Most music services give you files in what is called WMA format. WMA files have DRM-encryption on them usually (unless they were burned from a CD or removed). To get the DRM key back, you have to either renew your music service subscription, or upgrade your music service subscription (in some limited cases, the music services only let you listen to the songs for 30 days, and then they require you to pay for that individual song to continue using it).

Convert the songs to Mp3 format, and you will never get that message agin.

When the message 'Error' or 'License Issue' shows, it is referring to the DRM (Digital Rights Management) licences which are commonly found when downloading files. This is a method the music companies use to protect their music

On all tracks when i press play i get message ''media engine error! drm license not available'' i have a gogear sa1942


Your song (.WMA) are copy protected by 'Microsoft Windows Media digital rights management (DRM)' and appears to be requesting a license key which needs to be loaded to your player.
Solution:
- Media Player will automatically load those licences keys to your player for your authorised music/media files.
- Alternatively, remove DRM (for song that you own ...) by some third party means software (including burning them on CD with appropriate options)
- Use alternative songs encoding (such as .mp3) that do not this protection.

When i turn on my zune it just continues to restart. it showed a code 5 error message. What is it and can i fix it


you receive the message when A Windows Digital Rights Management component is corrupt.
Things to try
  1. Reset the DRM system on the computer. Warning This procedure affects all media files on the computer that use Windows Media DRM technology. The effect of this procedure is not limited to media files that you obtained from the Zune Marketplace. If you follow this procedure, content licenses for all protected media files on the hard disk are deleted. Other providers, such as, Napster, MSN Music, and Wal-Mart, use different mechanisms for restoring licenses. If you have content from other providers, examine the appropriate license restoration policies before you continue.To reset the DRM system on the computer, follow these steps:
    1. Verify that the Show hidden files and folders option is turned on. To do this, follow these steps:

      Windows 7 or Windows Vista
      1. Start Windows Explorer. To do this, click Start, type userinit.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
      2. Click Organize, and then click Folder and Search Options.
      3. Click the View tab.
      4. Click Advanced Settings.
      5. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide Protected Operating System files (recommended) check box, and then click OK.
      Windows XP
      1. Start Windows Explorer. To do this, click Start, click Run, type userinit.exe, and then click OK.
      2. Click Tools, and then click Folder Options.
      3. Click the View tab.
      4. Click Advanced Settings.
      5. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide Protected Operating System files (recommended) check box, and then click OK.
    2. Locate the DRM folder on the computer. Typically, the DRM folder is located in the following location. Note In these paths, drive represents the drive on which Windows is installed.Windows 7 or Windows Vista
      • Windows 7 or Windows Vista x86-based versions
        drive:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM
      • Windows 7 or Windows Vista x64-based versions
        drive:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM
      Windows XP
      • drive:\Documents and Settings\All Users\DRM
      Note If you have upgraded from Windows 98 or from Window ME to Windows XP, the DRM folders may be located in C:\Windows\DRM.DRM folders can be located in various locations in different versions of Windows. You can also locate the DRM data path in the registry. DRM data is located in the following section of the registry:
      • x86-based versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DRM
      • x64-based versions of Windows 7 or Windows Vista: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DRM
      To locate the DRM path in the registry, follow these steps:
      1. Start Registry Editor.
          Windows XP
          • Click Start, click Run, type Regedit, and then click OK.

        • Windows 7 or Windows Vista

          2. Type regedit.exe in the Open box, and then click OK.
            Collapse this imageExpand this image securityshield.jpgIf you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
      2. Look for the applicable folder based on the version of Windows that you are using.
    3. Rename the DRM folder to DRMbackup.
      1. Right-click the DRM folder, and then click Rename.
      2. Type DRMbackup, and then press ENTER.
      3. Close Windows Explorer.

        If you receive an “Access denied” error message when you try to rename your DRM folder, start the computer in safe mode and log in as the computer administrator. To do this, follow these steps:
        1. Restart the computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured to start multiple operating systems, press the F8 key when the Boot menu appears.
        2. Select the safe mode option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.

          The Boot menu appears again and the words "Safe Mode" appears in blue at the bottom of the screen.
    4. Reset the DRM security component. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site, and then follow the steps to upgrade the DRM security component: http://go.microsoft.com/FWLink?LinkID=34506 (http://go.microsoft.com/FWLink?LinkID=34506)

      Note When you access this site through Internet Explorer on a Windows Vista-based computer, you may receive a "user account control" popup message that requires that you enter the administrator password to continue. Note If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows Vista x64 and the Upgrade button on the site listed earlier in this step appears dimmed, you will have to start Internet Explorer by using an account on the computer that has Administrative privileges in order to continue.
    5. Sign in to the Zune Marketplace. Then try to play a song to verify that the issue has been resolved.
    6. Restore the setting of the Hidden files and folders option. To do this, follow these steps:

I had this same problem - I have a US model of the H320 - You have to update the firmware, but the US model only got to 1.04 and it sucks - go to http://www.misticriver.net/wiki/index.php/H3xx_Firmware_Version_Information

DRM Downloads


no you would have to remove drm protection to be able to do what you are trying to do. This is unfortunate but that is what the task of drm is designed to do. So in that it cant just be widely shared amongst people.
