Player won't play some songs - It states "No Authority" and won't play them
My player plays some of my songs that I have on it but others it just skips over. It seems like the first 30 or so it skips over. It will state "No Authority" and move on to the next one until it comes to one that apparently has authority and plays it. I'd like to show my MP3 player some authority!

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.

What its saying is that you do not own these songs legally so you have "no authority". Which means you have no rights/licenses with these songs as you can not use them legally. So you would need to go buy these songs legally, as some MP3 players have "copyright cops" in them.
this is because the songs are still copyrighted. your mp3 should have come with software and if you install this software the it will convert the files to correct format and they will be able to play on the mp3 player
These files have DRM, or Digital Rights Management, which only allows them to play on authorized machines. There are many programs out there to remove the DRM without affecting the quality of the songs, such as freeme2 and Digital Music Converter. Another method is to burn them to a CD, then re-rip them. It is fair use if you're using them on your own devices.
When I try to sync from my computer to my Phillips Mp-3 player. I am told I need a licence to do this. This all started when I got a new laptop with Vista. on my old computer with XP I never had this problem. What do I ne to do? The music I am trying to sync is from CDs I have already bought. Not downloaded from the net.
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.
Had the same problem. You usually have to do this from a computer. But first you rip your selection unto a computer harddrive, creat a folder on the MP3 then from the harddrive pick, drag and drop your sellections into this folder or else the player will not find the music. Then remove MP3 from machine and play.
