    My daughter got a Bratz Mp3 for Christmas. I paid for downloads on our PC Windows 2000. Downloads on computer by when I tried to put them onto MP3 it said no authority. But when I put USB cable from MP3 back to computer and asked computer to play it all the songs were there. Anyone any ideas as to problem and how to fix. Many thanks

It may not be the right files you have downloaded or that they are protected files.

One song that I want to play on my mp3 player keep coming up "Format Error". Why is ... You can't, unless you find out WHAT format it is, and install a player that is compatible with THAT format. Apparently, you are trying to play a file that IS NOT MP3. m. 0 ... #2 doesn't really happen often, but it can happen.

Cant play songs off my playlist

AAAaaaahhhhhh...

You can thank Microsoft for creating Digital Rights Management.

Okay...I'm assuming this is an MP3 that you loaded using the Rhapsody-to-go or other music service that allows for subscription music.

What the MP3 player is telling you is that because you have subscription music and not purchased music, the DRM allows you to only play the song or songs 30-90 days after download. To continue to listen to the songs, you will need to open your Media Manager software (Best Buy Digital Music Service, Rhapsody, WMP11, Media Monkey, etc) connect your MP3 player to the PC, identify the MP3 player through the media manager and tell it to re-authorize your tracks. Once its finished you'll be able to play your songs for another 30-90 days. You will need to repeat this re-authorizing to continue to play the tracks.

Mp3 player

IT MEANS THAT YOU CANNOT PUT SONGS FROM A CD ONTO YOUR MP3 PLAYER,& THAT YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THEM FROM SOMEWHERE SUCH AS WWW.LIMEWIRE.COM OR WWW.MP3ROCKET.COM. THERE YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THE FREE SOFTWARE SO YOU CAN DOWNLOAD AS MANY SONGS AS YOU WANT.BUT PERSONALLY I PREFER WWW.MP3ROCKET.COM

Sakar or iConcepts mp3 not working????

Walmart and many other sites sells songs that are DRM encrypted, meaning they are copy protected. Your MP3 player will not play these unless it is DRM 9 / 10 compatable. The purchase license permits you to download and play in the first device, when copied to another device the DRM prohibits playback in the second device.

Player won't play some songs - It states "No Authority" and won't play them

That generally means that the song was purchased online. Music purchased on line will sometimes not be allowed to transfer to mp3 players. That's to keep you from buying a song, putting it on your player and then transferring it to another computer. Part of the anti-piracy deal. If the songs that won't play were not purchased on line, then there may be deeper problems with your player and you may need to reformat the device.
