Re: samsung mp3 player problems
Licenses are required when you are using subscription music (i.e. - Rhapsody monthly). They need to be updated every 30 days. Just reconnect your device to the service and it will update automatically.
If you are not using these services and you have transferred music from your own cd's. The default settings for Windows Media Player are "copy protect my music" which would give you this same error.
If this is the case, you need to change the setting in Windows Media Player. Tools>Options>Rip Music "Uncheck copy protect my music". You may also want to change the rip tracks as setting to MP3.
Then you would need to re-rip the tracks as unprotected, then transfer the files to the device. Make sure you remove the original files, as they will still cause you problems.
Best of Luck.

the media you have on your device was download from a site like napster and is digital media rights protected. go to napster and renew your account or delete and getting music that doesn;t have drm protection
If you put songs on there from sites like spiralfrog.com or napster.com they are protected by licenses,they expire on your player causes you to have to deleted the licensed songs from your player and put them bac on.If you dont want this to happen again you have to find unprotected versions of your songs. try rapidlibrary.com.
The license on the songs has expired, and that's the problem with DRM-protected WMA's. You will need to renew the license through the music service from which you downloaded the songs. If your subscription has lapsed, you will need to renew it. Then, you'll have to delete the songs on your Walkman, and reload them once you have updated the license.
If you only download and transfer files in mp3 format you will never have this problem, and you can keep the songs forever.
The license on the songs that you have transferred to your mp3 player have an expired DRM license. The only way to "unexpire" the license is to refresh your license through the music service that you downloaded the songs from. If you have let your subscription lapse, the licenses will stay expired.
Are the files MP3 files or WMA files? This sounds like a DRM (digital rights management) limitation of the music you are using. MP3 files don't have DRM - and shouldn't exhibit this problem. WMA files can have licenses associated with them and only allow number of copies to be made for personal use before their license disables further use - as it sounds is occurring in your case.
There are several possibilities here. Right click one of the songs that is no longer showing, and click "Properties", and then click the "License" or "Digital Rights" tab. Look at the details of the license - does it say that it is only good for such and such a date? If you were using a trial version of a music service, has that music service's subscription now expired? If the license is expired, the songs will go bad. Only soultion, if this is the case, is to renew your music service subscription.
Try updating the firmware on the player by going to Sansa's website.
After that, reformat the player in Windows Media Player and reload the songs.
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).
For RTC error, open Windows Media Player and connect it. Windows media should offer to synch the clock. RTC stands for RealTime Clock
For License Error, this is to be expected around the same time every month. You see, when you transfer DRM protected music, a license is transferred as well. When you use a montly "all you can eat" plan, the licenses expiring every month keeps you from syncing all sorts of songs onto your device, then canceling your service, making away with free music.
Open your music service, connect the device, and synch a song to it. That should update all licenses.
