Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Just in the last month this problem surfaced. I download audio books from my library. I have been doing this for the past year. My MP3 player says synchronize to continue your subscription. My library is free I don't pay for this. It worked for 11 months. Can you help

    Our library uses OverDrive Media Console to download the audio books to my computer. When I transfer the audio booK to my Sansa E200 it transfers fine but when I go to play the audio book I get the message that that says Synchronize to Continue your music Subscription. What music subscription? It worked for the past 11months without this problem.

    The same things happens when I use Windows Medica Player to sync an audio CD to my device.

I had this issue with my e260 and Overdrive Media audiobooks. Here is how I solved the problem:

NOTE: Make sure that your license is valid -or the following will make no difference.

1. Windows Media Player needs to be at least 10 -and it needs a security update to be able to deal with DRM files.
2. The audiobook needs to be opened (played) (even just for 1 sec.) on the computer first to "activate" the license.
3. When transferring from Overdrive Media the Sansa HAS to be set to MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) in the USB settings for the license to transfer to the device allowing it to play.

I hope this helps someone. It took me an entire day of research and trial & error to figure it out.

How and where do i put e-books on my mp3 player model HS-57


If by e-books you mean books you can read (visually), you are out of luck. On an MP3 player you can only LISTEN to AUDIO books in MP3 format. You can buy such books at Amazon.com and other places. Another option is to check with your public library to see if they have a downloadable audio book service, which is free but with limited number of books. You download the books to your computer, connect the player to the computer using the USB cable that came with the player and copy/transfer the books from the computer to the player.

Downloading audio books onto a Sony MP3 player.


MP3 players can only play music and audio books files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

I have Audio books that I want to put on my mp3 player, but I dont know how to get it to sync to my device and go into the Audiobooks instead of Music


First download the driver from your player's manufacture's site. It will be under download tab or support tab.
Download and install driver, then restart pc

Then turn on device, then plug into pc, then go to my computer, then you should see your device there. Double-click on the device folder. Now you can see and will have access to all folders.
You can leave this page up, then go to the page & file that your book is on. click, hold, and then drag this file over to the audio book folder and release the button, it will transfer the book to the mp3 player audio book file.
You can also use windows media player 11 and sync your mp3 player to your windows media player and create a playlist or library and transfer them onto mp3 player as well

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.

E260 uploading audio books from the library


Oh my ! , I like your style , I consider you a true thinker.

1. break the albums down into smaller chunks as individual files
2. make sure that when you've ripped the files off the CDs that you rip them as MP3 files
3. make sure that you check each file with an encoder checker such as encspotbasic 2.0 before loading them to the E260


Do these things weed hopper and all will be well with you.

Shalom :-)

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.

Synchronize my m240


The "please synchronize" error refers to the license for the library audio book you have on your device.

You will need to contact the content providers to troubleshoot the license issue.





Best of Luck.
