Windows Media Player 10 and DRM

4055 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  geocark
I am using Windows XP Professional Edition and Windows Media 10
I recently updated the XP Sp2 and my Windows Media from version 9 to 10.

I have been downloading music from buymusic for some time and
have quite a few songs in my media library along with other songs that I
have burn from my own CDs.

All of a sudden yesterday, the ones I downloaded from buymusic won't play. All of the others will though. Just the ones I have downloaded.
I even tried downloading a new one and it would'nt play either.
The error details say:
Windows Media Player cannot play, synchronize, or burn a protected file because an error occurred while verifying the license.
I have been search the internet to try and find out why licenses are gone?

This is the error message I get once I updated windows media to 10.
It wasn't working on version 9 and had a similiar error code, but said that I
need the updated security and to update to the latest service
pack for my internet explorer, which I did. I also updated to wm 10
hoping that that would solve the problem.
I read about a similiar problem on this forum, but nothing has helped so far.
It just seems that my system has lost the digital licenses needed to play
these songs or my system no longer knows where to go to verify the licenses.
Anyway... any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having a very similar problem. WMP will not play any of my previously downloaded songs nor the new ones I downloaded recently. Each play attempt is met with "acquiring license" and it never does. I've clicked "back-up now" and "restore now" tabs but no success. Help appreciated.:confused:
I tried your suggestion but I apparently have lost all licenses for songs downloaded in WMP. I reinstalled version 10--no help. Songs won't play or burn to CD. Still stumped.
No error message on those screens but when I try to burn I get error C00D2720: cannot burn or synchronize the file. It directs me to the properties and license tab for each song. When license is selected, the dialog box is empty.
