You have to subscribe to be able to play any tracks downloaded from URGE or REAL or anyplace like that. Once the trial is up you have to pay to be able to hear them. I found out after spending days filling my player full of music. I ended up deleting all and transferring tracks from CD's or actually paying to download tracks.

no additional details ...
where from do you download songs ? which website or service ? ( if its a paid service , you are probably doing some thing wrong . if a free service , try some alternate ones . free services donot provide complete files )
how do you download the songs ? do you use a download manager or through a web browser ?
( browser are bad downloaders . the file might get corrupted or segmented during the transfer . use a download manager instead )
how do you play the songs ? which type of player ( a media player might be corrupted . unable to play the file or might not support the format .. )
some details please ...
Your Windows Media Player may need to be updated and the player may need to be formatted. Please try these steps:
1) If you do not have it installed yet, please install the latest version of WMP10.
2) Download and install the quick fix from:
3) Format m250 device using the Sync mode in WMP.
4) To test, transfer songs to the player using the software for your subscription music service.
The songs that you got are probably from the Rhapsody trial. Once the subscriptino expires, you will on longer be able to play those songs on your mp3 player.
To avoid this problem, only purchase songs that are in mp3 format from Rhapsody's Mp3 Store. You will find that mp3 players are expensive propositions in 2009 - it used to be much easier/cheaper.
If you want to go with illegal but free (I do not reccomend it), you can get songs from Limewire, Frostiwre, or Morpheus. Three warnings I must issue:
1) Only download songs that say "Mp3" under file format.
2) Some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use limewire
3) Make sure you have strong Anti-Virus software on your computer, b/c the free svcs are littered with viruses/adware/etc.
hi, just want to ask if, before you've dowloaded song to your mp3 have you scan it for possible virus? it's adviceable to scan 1st all dowloaded song before transferring to mp3 player for some of it have imbeded malware and virus. most common virus is the brontok which will freeze your played files then shut it off.
try to download " ESET nod32" anti virus and scan your mp3 for possible virus infection. NOD32 have a free trial and can still work even if the trial period expired.
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.
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.
