Solution: "No license to play. Sync license from PC."

Problem: Got music through Napster/Urge. Sync music through Windows Media Player. Using Windows XP Home edition. After about 2 weeks, accidentally left my Zen on overnight. Ever since then, music only good for about an hour (sometimes less) and then I get the "No license to play. Sync license from PC" error message.

Solution1: Press the play/pause button before turning off (don't turn it off while it's playing).

Solution2: Here's a fix I found after searching on Google and it works. Go into your Control Panel and Add and Remove Programs. Make sure Show Updates is checked on top of the Window. Scroll down to the bottom and remove Hotfix for Windows Media Format 11 SDK (KB929399). Restart then resync your music to your player. Unfortunately, Windows continues to reinstall this "fix."

Solution3: Another option to getting your purchased downloads on to you player is to burn them as cd-audio (wav) files to CD, then rip them back on to your computer as mp3's or wma's, whatever you prefer. Your purchase of the songs gives you the right and ability to do this, And I would do this regardless of whether you're having DRM issues or not - just as a way of backing up what you've bought.
