I switched from rhapsody to urge music media, because i couldn't keep a connection with rhapsody. i guess quite a few of their customers are experiencing the same thing...rhapsody needs to increase their servers.
so, i downloaded music in urge windows media player, and synchronized it to my Sansa device. however, when i try to play these songs on my mp3 player i receive a message "synchronize to continue your music subscription" what does this mean? i have tried everything. what am i doing wrong.

Re: sansa rhapsody mp3 player
Your Windows Media Player may need to be updated and the player may need to be formatted. Please try these steps:
1) If you do not have it installed yet, please install the latest version of WMP10.
2) Download and install the quick fix from:
3) Format m250 device using the Sync mode in WMP.
4) To test, transfer songs to the player using the software for your subscription music service.

sometimes mp3 player will say that if the song you put on them is copyright protected
if you downloaded it from itunes or urge they only sell protected copies of their music. stores like rhapsody mp3 store sell unprotected copies.
check your ripping software as well, sometimes in your option for ripping the music into a mp3 you can check a little box to protect it, if you did it usually only works on that player and devices synced to it
Yes you do. There is a way around the problem of having to maintain your subscription, but it gets expensive - if you buy an mp3 file from the Rhapsody Mp3 Store, it will give you the file in mp3 format, which will always work even after you let your subscription lapse. More expensive, but ultimately longer lasting.
The device without rhapsody is simply a storage device, and mp3 player. Copy the files from your PC or wherever they are stored to the player. The Sansa operating system will organize the music and then follow instructions. Warning: The update for the Sansa model is different from the standard media player. Do not know what happens when you update with the alternate update.
You must resynchronize to the msuic service (probably Rhapsody) every 30 days with this player, or you will get that error message. Two ways to solve:
1) Keep renewing your paid subscription to Rhapsody every month
2) Convert the files you downloaded from Rhapsody into Mp3 format
I use Rhapsody with Vista. You need to go to Rhapsody's website (or Best Buy Digital Music Store, which runs the same software) and download the updated version, which will work just fine.
Purchased music from iTunes can be put on Sansa players as well when you set-up Rhapsody to manage your music. Have the program detect your music library and then all you have to do is drag and drop to your MP3 player.
There are a lot of music blogs out there that have MP3 downloads for anyone to freely download. Another is http://www.b3ta.cr3ation.co.uk/site/music-plus/ -just type a band name in and wait for the results.
