    Key Locked System Shutdown - Refers to the player having the Hold Switch active. Please slide it to where Orange is no longer showing.

    your mp3 has a USB cable to insert it on your computer. Once you inserted it the computer will recognize your mp3 stated that it is connected. On my computer you will see the device of your mp3, right click on it and find the format. a small windows will pop up for the format menu. click the format bar and wait until it finish. aside from that everytime you inserted your mp3 it will automatically charge it. let me know if you have other problem



    thank you for using fixya

Key locked: system shutdown


There's a slide switch on the top of the unit, near the headphone jack. Slide the switch away from the jack to unlock the unit.

I bought a used mp3 player put the battery died


There's a slide switch on the top of the unit, near the headphone jack. Slide it away from the jack to unlock the unit. Slide it toward the jack to lock the unit so that accidental bumping of the controls won't do anything.

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!

Player stopped working with rhapsody


Uh, I had a similar problem which was extremely difficult to solve. What you want to do is reformat your entire MP3 player. YOU WILL LOSE ALL THE MUSIC ON YOUR SANSA. But you can simply resynch it.

NEED HELP!!! Rhapsody Software Download Problem


Okay...MacAffee is causing problems with your connection and with the download/update. You will need to right click on the MacAffee icon in the system tray (bottom right of the screen) and open the program to turn it off (or just quit the program). Also make sure your firewall is down when doing this.

Re-install BBDMS (aka Rhapsody), and allow the update to happen. Once this is complete (assuming that MacAffee is the only anti-virus software running) launch the program, connect your MP3 player, and "authorize" the player on your computer.

This should take care of the problem.

I would also recomend a different anti-virus and firewall program. AVG isn't as invasive, and PCTools firewall will allow you to configure what programs are allowed to use the internet.

Vista not compatible with rhapsody.


I use Rhapsody with Vista. You need to go to Rhapsody's website (or Best Buy Digital Music Store, which runs the same software) and download the updated version, which will work just fine.

Purchased music from iTunes can be put on Sansa players as well when you set-up Rhapsody to manage your music. Have the program detect your music library and then all you have to do is drag and drop to your MP3 player.
