Synchronize to continue your music subscription

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.

Good luck!

Mp3 player won't play

That is the problem with services that give you DRM-protected WMA's - as soon as the subscription lapses, the song cannot be played on your mp3 player anymore. The only way around the problem is to either: a) renew your subscription, or b) get a music service that gives you DRM-free songs, preferably a service that gives you the songs in mp3 format.

Music will not load to player

Some music files are in a DRM-protected WMA or AAC format that does not allow you to transfer the songs to certain mp3 players, even though the songs will play fine on your computer. To get around this problem, make sure that you buy a subscription level that has transfer rights - or, better yet, only download songs that are in true mp3 format. Songs in mp3 format do not have copy-protection on them, so they will never give you error messages, headaches, etc.

make sure what your putting on is MP3 or unprotected WMA files. If the light is blinking, then it means its playing the song, if you hear nothing, the audio is not in the correct format.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

Maybe you should mention that if you format, it will delete all your songs?

File error

What's the music format of the songs that you placed on your mp3 player? Some MP3 Players only capable of playing song files with .mp3 extension and are incapable of playing other music format like wav, wma, etc. Check also the contents of the player for corrupted files and foreign files. Some viruses from a computer could affect the performance of your mp3 player.

Error Message

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.

Won't upload a certain cd

It seems odd that the device wont play 1 particular artist. If you downloaded it from URGE, it may be subscription content and that may be causing the error. I would try burning the music to a cd, then re-rip them back to your computer to see if that strips out the problems. Best of Luck.

"Synch problem: Synchronise to continue your music subscription"

I would suggest formatting the unit and trying again, but this time do not sync it with media player. Plug it into your USB and got "My Computer", the player will show up as a removable disc usually drive f:, right click on the drive and hit format, quick format shoudl work. Once formated double click the removable disc drive, and then click and drag or copy and paste your music into this drive and see what happens. That player should support WMA files, but just to let you know, if you convert those files to MP3 it will take about half the space and therefot you can store more music at once. L8R Hope this helps and good luck
