My Sansa 280 is "not licensed"

I use Rhapsody for my Sansa 280 (one year old) and it has worked sporadically for the past few months.  It finally got to the point where my computer wouldn't recognize it at all.  I fixed THAT by formatting the Sansa.  Now the computer recognizes it just fine but every time I try to use Rhapsody to download music Rhapsody tells me that my player is "not licensed".  I've tried right clicking on the player, clicking "license"....but nothing happens.  Now what???

My MP3 player displays "License Expired" on the screen.


If you let your subscription to Rhapsody expire, you will get this message. If you didn't let your subscriptino expire then you will need to synch the files from Rhapsody itself back onto the player - the licenses have to be renewed once a year for some songs - once a month for others. If your subscriptino ever expires, you can no longer use the songs.

Songs dissapeared!


Several things. 1. To correctly reset it, flip the lock button, then hold down the power button. 2. Format your sansa. Make sure you have all your stuff off. Then, format it. If you don't know how, e-mail me here : spazzysmash@gmail.com Then sync it back on!

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)
Hope this helps.

Sansa e250 keeps saying "SYNCHRONIZE TO CONTINUE YOUR MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION"


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.

Best buy rhapsody


Unfortunately you are not going to be able to go online to sync your device...All music subscription such as napster and rhapsody require you to sync your device every single month using their actual software..The reason is to prevent customer from cancelling their music subscription..once you cancel your membership all the songs you have on your device will become useless.In another word, you are renting the music from the subscription company...

P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Sansa E280 MP3 Player has problem synchronising playing songs


Make sure your Rhapsody subscription is paid and up to date - if it ever lapses you will lose the songs. also, check out the License tab under properties for the songs that failed - the license may have a fixed-term/expiration date and can no longer be synced without paying $$. Rhapsody sucks like that.

License expired


I have the same problem as well, if you downloaded your songs through a subscription service such as Rhapsody, you may have to connect the Connect to the PC with Rhapsody running. Sansa suggests connecting to one of Yahoo!'s services with the WiFi. This usually works for me, but it hasnt been recently.

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...

The "please sync" error means you need to connect to Rhapsody and sign-in. It will update your licenses so you can play the music.

If thats not working, your account is expired, or Rhapsody needs to check your account.

Best of Luck.
