It is the player your using I would bet. If you have a media player that connects to the internet to verify the audio file.
downloading streamed files from napster may carry DRM now, like other tools such as iTunes WMP all require a regestered certificate to identify you if you don't have one then it won't play.
Often times these files will only play on the designated player for Napster as is the case here.
Did it ask you for a certificate?

what media player are you using?

When it asks you for lisense say yes you should have a digital lisense with WMP.
Do you have a membership wih Napster?
Dont think you can unfortunately add them to your MP3 like itunes it has it's own ipod and can upload personal mp3 to it  but the iTunes stay within their lisensing agreement.
What is the format of these plays a part. Like real media has RM extension and only plays in their real player
It's a big problem I do agree with piracy but even the legit owners suffer too.
Itunes has a work around

Your only option here is to record the files to mp3 format.
Use your search engine.
