Here's the solution. I downloaded music from Walmart. If you open these songs
with Media Player and click them to play the song, Media Player will go and
get the license. Watch the status bar at the bottom of the page and you will
see it getting the license. From there you can burn these songs. You will
have to do this for each song that has the error code. You only have to play
the song for a second. If you check the properties on the song it will tell
you the license details. Hope this helps everyone. I will check back and see
if this works for anyone or if there are questions.
