    so you are streaming music that you physically have on your xbox to your windows 8 laptop, via some music app. You can stream and sync between the devices, its just that you get no sound on your laptop when the music is playing.

    is this correct?, also please state the exact music app, is it xbox smartglass app or just the regular music app that is orange?

    Hi there people. I'm getting the same error message. I am trying to listen to music on my computer in the music app, with smart dj. So it's online music... I am connected to the internet when this error message comes up.
    One search recommended checking the country and region settings whick I done.
    Still no luck..

    I'm wondering if its because windows has been activated wrong?

    ^ Pretty much what he said. I'm starting to think it's my Windows too. I have almost given up on the issue.

    I was trying this out on a separate PC running the RTM trial, and it's a Dell desktop so they don't play sound until it detects a sound device. I believe I came across the exact error code, I'm not sure though, but I'll check it to be sure.

    I did get a driver error once but it disappeared after I installed the corresponding realtek drivers. I haven't found many signs of the same error on the net, people just refer to it as "can't play songs" which pretty much describes the problem.

    Hi, did you mean your sound driver wasn't installed ? If so i checked my devices manager and my sound driver looks to be installed. Also i play videos off my computer through my t.v so yes my sound drivers are working.

    Do you think it might be because i dont have a xbox music pass?
    In saying that though, i can play some 30 second music preview songs...

    I don't know...

    if you're logging into a microsoft account (you can tie any email to a microsoft account whether it's gmail or hotmail or yahoo or whatever), you shouldn't be getting 30 second previews. the only time I ever got that was when there was a problem verifying the account.
