When we download the songs to the player it shows up in the player but the message synchronize to continue your music subscription pops up and will not play the song. How can we fix this?
I keep trying to play the music that i put on my mp3 player but the message "synchronize to continue your music subcription" how can i delete these songs off the mp3 player.
My Sansa model:e250 MP3 has been providing me with great service for two years. I have not added or deleted any music. Suddenly it is now telling me "Synchronise to continue your music subscription" and it won't play my music. What does this mean and why has it suddenly started to do this and what can I do to get my music back?
Re: 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)
Re: synchronize to continue your music subscription
I have a Sansa Fuzz, almost a look alike of the Apple I Pod. This is the latest version from Sansa MP3 players. I paid a monthly fee from Rhapsody and downloaded music to my MP3. I did not extend my Rhapsody monthly service and now am locked out of the current music files on my MP3 player. I have some electronic know how and have some idea each downloaded music file has attached a time clock code imbeded in each file. When you dont extend your service, no code for extending the use of downloaded files will be issued. So a pop up window on the MP3 shows: Syncronize To Continue Your Music Subscription. I am sure I may be right, since Ive tried extending my service and I can continue playing my downloaded files. If I new the MP3 was this much of a hassel, I would not have spent the $80:00 on it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

If you got your songs from a music service, especially Rhapsody, the songs have a fixed-term DRM license on them. After a certain period of time - sometimes as little as 3 days - you have to resynchronize the songs to the music service from where you got the songs. If you let your music service subscription lapse, then the songs will not be usable until you renew your subscription. This process of resynchronizing the songs to the music service does not always go smoothly. Sometimes synchronizing through Rhapsody or another service does not resolve your issue - in this case, you will have to go through the long, tedious process of deleting the affected songs off of your player and reloading them - either through the music service or through Windows Media Player.
If you never want to deal with this problem again, the solution is to only download songs that are in mp3 format. Mp3 files do not expire once your music service subscription has expired, and they do not give you strange messages to resynchronize the files.
The "synchronize files to continue" is annoying, and you are likely to get it again. If the music files on your player came from Rhapsody, the short-term solution is to re-synch the files through Rhapsody itself. If your subscription to Rhapsody, Overdrive, etc. ever expires, you will also get this message. The only long-term way around this problem is to only load songs that are in mp3 format (Rhapsody has an Mp3-Only subscription, which is different from its regular subscription; Limewire is another choice - but it is prone to have viruses, and some ISPs will cut off your broadband if you use the service). If you wanted to erase all songs and start over from scratch, you could update the firmware on the player - it will have the side effect of erasing everything on the player.
The songs that are giving you this message are in WMA - the music service that was used to download them either has an expired subscription, or you have to resynchronize that player to that music service (whether it was Rhapsody or not). Also, the songs that are giving you this message might have had fixed-term licenses, and now the licenses have expired. Here are your options: 1) Renew the music service subscription 2) If it is renewed, then resynchronize your player to that music service 3) Convert those songs to mp3 format (probably illegal) 4) Remove the DRM encryption from those songs (definitely illegal)

it's asking that you verify the DRM status (i.e., that you bought it and it resides on YOUR computer.) It cannot play the file until you synchronize it with windows media player. You can delete them off of the MP3 player just by noting which songs don't play and deleting them through windows explorer when the player is connected.
You have to synchronize your Sansa to a computer that has a current subscription to Rhapsody, and you have to sync the Sansa to that same computer at least once every 30 days, or the Rhapsody songs will stop working. Use a different music service that is free, or convert all of the songs to Mp3 format to get around the problem. If you get a subscription to another music svc, then you must maintain a current subscription with whatever new svc you choose as well.
Do you have an account with Rhapsody?
The preloaded music is part of the Rhapsody subscription service. If you dont have an account, you will receive that message until you delete the preloaded music, or subscribe to the Rhapsody Service.
Best of Luck.
