Every time I try to start Rhapsody I get the message
"We're sorry, Rhapsody could not authorize your PC to play this track. It appears that Windows Licenses (WMDRM) on your PC are corrupt.

It then gives me a link to this microsoft website

I followed the instructions, but got stuck on #5 and 6. When I did step #3 it said the DRM folder I needed was located in C:/Windows/DRM, but when I tried finding it by going to the windows folder, I could not locate it.

I also went to the website that instruction #6 gives you, but could not click the upgrade button (it was faded)

Skipping to instruction #8, I tried hitting restore, but it said I had no licenses to restore.

I don't know if this helps, but I found a folder called "license backup" with four DRMV files. I'm not sure what kind of files they are, because when I click on them, the computer asks which program I would like to use to open them.

Also, I uninstalled Rhapsody, and downloaded it again. I also updated Windows Media Player.
I have Windows ME...

Thank you in advance.

Where did you buy your computer and are you using the original software that was on it?

It was a family computer, so I'm not sure where they originally got it from. Both Windows Media Player and Rhapsody worked fine before, so I'm not sure what happened.

DRM is a hidden folder so you have to go into Tools > Folder Options > View, click on 'Show hidden files and folders'.

Are these tracks purchased from Rhapsody? If so you can to log into your Rhapsody account and it should verify the purchase and fix the license.

Thanks, I clicked show hidden files and folders earlier because it was one of the instructions on the website rhapsody linked me to.
No, they are not purchased. I have a monthly membership.
When I try to log into Rhapsody, that is when it gives me that message and links me to the microsoft website.
Should I sign in online at their website?? What can I do from here?
