Music Disc Creator Playlist

Question

In an attempt to re-record an mp3 for my car (the first disc failed-heat in summer?) many of the titles will not record because "the license has expired." Well, some of the songs came from my personal cd collection, so a license was not involved. I re-downloaded some of the songs I got from Napster, with the apporpriate licenses. Al of these songs play fine on windows media player, but still come up with a lock symbol when placed in the playlist, and therefore will not record. Why? Even if I re-purchased the songs, or re-recorded from my cd's, I'm not sure anything would change. Help?

When you purchase music online, you have to use that software if it allows you to burn a CD. For example, you can burn from iTunes for any purchased music that is locked. I think iTunes only allows those songs to burned a certain number of times. As for Napster, I would assume you will have to do the same thing IF the song has DRM.

 

Music Disc Creator should be able to rip your audio CDs. IF you use Napster or iTunes to rip an audio CD, they could be adding DRM to the files.

I spoke to Napster, and they said that the tunes that I had downloaded are still "current," and should perform as before. They also said that the songs play on the Media Player, they are fine, and shouldn't be locked up only on the Roxio playlists.

Did you tell them you were trying to burn the mp3 files to an mp3 disc?
