Scandisk Sansa M240 in stops transfering tracks at 8% on Napster

When transfering Napster DRM files to my Scandisk Sansa M240 player it stops transfering at 8% transfer staus and stays at 8%.
Here is what I have aldeady tried for troubleshooting:
-Reinstalled Napster
-Reformatted the Sansa M240 using FAT
-Manualy updated MTP driver using the Device Manager on "My Computer"
-Confirmed that I have latest Firmware 3.2.8 by using the Sansa Firmware updater.
-Made sure my device was in MTP mode when transfering the DRM files.
I also tried to sync the tracks using Windows Media 11, it also does not get very far in the sync process.

One more thing to note. When I transfer or sync purchased tracks to the Sansa M240 in MSC mode there is no problem, but that is only purchased tracks.

Can anyone help. I have been working on this for hours and this is super frustrating.

Delete songs


Your SanDisk Sansa Player does not allow you to delete files from within the player (But the recorded files can be deleted at the player). Instead I recommend that you follow these steps :

When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m240. Follow these steps:

1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer.

2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.

3. To use the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client software to delete files to your player please refer to the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client help file.

NOTE: While you can store and organize your audio files on your player using folders with names you select, your player will ignore folders and names. Instead, your Sansa player will extract information from each audio file so that you can use the software menu to navigate your files by artist, album title, song title, and other useful criteria.

hope it helps.
Have a nice day!

You can manually transfer files thru My Computer>Device Name (m240). Just drop the files, no folders, into the device. Best of Luck.

Synchronoze to continue music subscription


I treat my Sansa like a disk drive and simply transfer the files from my hard drive to the Sansa via Explorer.  The tracks purchased from Napster can be downloaded to your hard drive.  Then I exit Napster and use Windows Explorer to simply transfer the data.  Works great for me for the past month!

Music file problem


Yes, It has to do with using napster. When you purchase songs form napster or most other online digital music vendors, the files that you download have digital rights management or DRM for short. In other words the recording companies have limited your rights to use of the files in some way becasue they are worried that you may go and give them to all your friends and they will have lower profits due to the resulting lost sales. There is a license associated with your digital music file. While there are different license schemes, one sure thing is that you can not play the music on a player that does not support DRM. Luckily the H10 is a Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) player, which means that it does support DRM. You must, however, use the right software to transfer the files; Software that will transfer license information to the player. I think Napster can do this itself but I have never used the service, so I can not be sure. The iriver plus software or Windows Media Player 10 and above should also work if Napster is not performing this task properly. I may also be that you must refresh the licenses for the DRM music files on a regular basis or they will expire. Hopefully using any of the above mentioned transfer programs will accomplish this task. Can you still play the songs on your computer? If not then there may be a more serious issue with your licenses. If you see all of these DRM restrictions as the rediculious hassle that they are, the you should know that there are ways to strip this information from your music files, but it's probably against the rules to go into that here. You should be able to find them if you are interested and willing to look hard enough. I hope you get them working properly.
