Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
I'm not sure what's the subscription service to which you are subscribed. However I've given you the steps below. Try whatever suits for you.
This error typically occurs when the DRM licensed files have expired.
SOLUTION 1 - Songs ripped from an audio CD
If the songs were ripped from a CD using Windows Media Player, modify the Rip Music settings.
SOLUTION 2 - Songs downloaded from music subscription service
If the songs were downloaded from a music subscription service (e.g., Napster, Rhapsody, Best Buy music store, etc.), follow these steps:
1. Make sure that your account subscription is updated and active.
2. Put the device in MTP mode and connect to the computer, then log in to your music subscription account.
3. Renew the licenses of your tracks
On the Rhapsody console, right-click on your device and select License
1. Check the date & time on your PC & on your mp3 player. They should be one and the same. 2. You need to synchronize your device with rhapsody once in every 30 days. It's a must. Failing to do so, you will not be able to play music in your mp3 player. Here are a few a steps to synchronize your device with rhapsody: 1.Open Rhapsody / Best Buy Digital Music Store and sign in 2.Connect your mp3 player to the computer 3.Go to My Account --> Update Track Licenses 4.Transfer a track to your device 5.Disconnect your device and enjoy music on the go!
