My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!

I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.

Can't add or remove music off my Sansa Rhapsody 2GB

first try this...

1 put on hold and hold record button while u turn on (your sansa is now in recovery mode)
2 connect your sansa to your comp via usb cable a box should show up saying the firmware version
3 close the window and disconnect your sansa (it will restart)

if that doesnt fix your problem try this...

1 connect your sansa to comp via usb cable
2 right click start on windows desktop go to explore
3 scroll down to your sansa's drive rifght click it go to properties
4 go to tools tab and click "check now" under error checking will take awhile and will erase your memory on the sansa but it will work again

I hope my post was helpful let me know!!!!

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

I ran into the same problem with my Sansa when listening to legally downloaded audio books from the local library. This is what I found:

  • " Are you sure the player is in MTP(plays for sure) mode when you transfer it? You can check by going to settings>usb mode on the player itself. I think it needs to be for you to use library files like that. " (This worked for me)
  • "are you copy and pasting the files? if so you will need to use WMP to sync the files. copy and paste might not be transferring the license." (didn't try this -- didn't need to)
Hope this helps.

Can't get songs to play, can't add songs

I plug mine into the usb port . then i open the file where the folder says music. in the music folder i remove or delete files from it. then i add copies of new ones. that's the only way i can add music to mine because mine won't form at it with the converter. the converter says its the wrong format.but this way works fine for me. the copes i add are mp3 media player or quick time

Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

Will eventually lose songs downloaded?

Okay, here's what i've encountered:  songs that I downloaded on rhapsody, without purchasing, only lasted about 7-10 days unless i reconnected.  once my trial period ended, i lost all the songs.  songs that i've purchased i've had no trouble (although if you load them to the sansa immediately after download, you may get the same message.  its best to wait at least 24 hours).  good luck

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

hmm... well someone probably placed a subscription time on the songs you purchased. the only thing i could think to do would be to try and reload them to your mp3 player

Music stopped playing "synchronize to continue..."

Your device has to be connected to Rhapsody every 15 to 30 days to verify your account.

If you are connected and signed in, and still receive this message, you should contact Rhapsody Technical Support as the error is on their end. (866-597-5507)

Best of Luck.
