Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
When we download the songs to the player it shows up in the player but the message synchronize to continue your music subscription pops up and will not play the song. How can we fix this?
This is what I recieved when I asked a third party for help with this same problem. I worked. Good luck:
The error you are receiving may be
resolved by changing the USB settings within your device. Your device
uses two different transfer modes that are automatically selected by the
device; the primary mode is MTP. MTP mode is what allows the transfer of
the license along with the WMA (Windows Media Audio) title. Can you
please complete the following steps to change the USB setting?
(Please note: Do not connect the device to the computer until step 4.)
1. Power on the device and select 'Settings'.
2. Scroll to and select 'USB Mode' (or 'Mode').
3. Scroll to and select 'MTP' (or 'PlaysForSure Mode').
4. Connect the device to your computer.
5. Open 'My Computer’ > Sansa e280.
6. Delete any WMA (Windows Media Audio) files you see that are of books
you cannot play.
7. Open the OverDrive Media Console and attempt to transfer the audio

You're not going to like it because it will clear out your memory but here is how you fix this problem.
Go into settings on the player while disconnected from the computer.
Go to Format.
Confirm with a Yes.
Reconnect your player and download your songs.
Now they will play.

Formatting the player in MSC mode using windows explorer then retransffering the songs using MTP would help you with this concern. This is normal if songs are downloaded from Rhapsody, napster or any online music stores.

THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM:
(I don't know if this works on downloaded music but it DOES work on music ripped from a CD) In your computers music player (Windows Media Player for this example) click on options, go to Copy Music or Ripped Music and make sure you have "Copy Protect Music" UNCHECKED. If you have this checked it'll add an extra copy protection to the song when you put it on your PC making your Sansa MP3player think you need to subscribe to be able to play this song.
After unchecking the option, you will have to re-rip/upload music from the CD's onto your PC for them to get rid of the extra copy protection from your PC's music player. Place then into your Sansa and WALLA the problem should be fixed!

This is something that the licence for the tracks gets expired. So it has to be renewed...

it's asking that you verify the DRM status (i.e., that you bought it and it resides on YOUR computer.) It cannot play the file until you synchronize it with windows media player. You can delete them off of the MP3 player just by noting which songs don't play and deleting them through windows explorer when the player is connected.

please use the windows media player 10, click on sync and put all the songs you want in the sync list then click on start sync and it should sync properly without any problems.
Have a nice day!
