Media Player Question

We have four media players in the house. Two are really basic RCA players -- so easy to use. Just plug them into the USB port and sync from Windows Media Player. Another is a more powerful one -- also really to use though. Another basic plug and sync type player. We recently picked up a fourth one (its an MPIO player) and I can't seem to play any songs I've downloaded on it. When we sync music ripped from a CD -- no problem. But music purchased off a download site (basically licenced music) doesn't work. The player says the "file may be abnormal" whatever the heck that means. I downloaded any security updates available for windows media player (I'm on version 10), tried again and it still doesn't play anything that's been downloaded vs ripped.

What do you think causes this???? Is it something missing on my media player settings? I run Windows XP.
