    i finally fixed it. i dont really know how but when i tried syncing it i went to my computers (my mp3 is in mtp mode) and then clicked on the sansa icon and clicked on media. i did NOT click on the music folder. i dragged and dropped the music into the media folder and left it there (sothat its not in any folder) and when i took my mp3 off i went to music and there was the music! im so relieved and happy i was so afraid i would have to take it back!

I can't listen to my SpiralFrog music!!!

That's the problem with DRM licensing. Do yourself a favor - only download mp3 format songs to the player, and you will never have this problem. If you want to use SpiralFrog, delete all songs that are on your mp3 player now, make sure your spiral frog sub allows transfer rights, and reload the songs.

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.

That means you will need to transfer one track to your device from rhapsody..the songs you have from rhapsody has a license in them...the licenses get renew every month..that means if you discontinue your service, you are not going to be able to play those songs...just try to transfer one track from rhapsody to your device and that will solve your problems...

Mp3 format??? HELP, PLEASE!

I don't know about converting the MP3s to WMAs, but I had the same problem with "corrupt files."
What fixed that for me was instead of dragging and dropping files onto the Sansa, I synchronized them using Windows Media player, but only do 10-20 songs at a time, because if you try to do too many, they probably won't show up. I know it's tedious and annoying, but that's what did it for mine :) I hope this helps.

Synchronize MP3

In order to play your song you will need to try to transfer one track to that device...once you do that all the songs should acquire new need to transfer tracks to your device once a month in order to play the should be able to play your purchased tracks....if not you might need to format the device inside WMP....then you need to check the licenses on your purchased tracks to make sure they dont have any restrictions...if you have any
