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!

When you use a service like Rhapsody or Napster and download "unlimited music" as part of a subscription, you periodically need to sync the player to prove that you are still paying a subscription fee, or the subscribed music will not play. Just sync the player (plug in with the USB cable) to a PC which has a valid subscription to the service that you use. Make sure you log into the service before you sync so that the new keys are picked up.
If you have a subscription to a service that has gone out of business (Like Yahoo Music Unlimited), you may just need to delete the subscription music from the player.
I'm no expert, but we have both an iPod and a Sansa mp3 player, and I prefer to use Napster with my Sansa player. It's a monthly subscription (about 15 bucks a month), but you can audition the entire song and download as many as you want to your computer or your player. With iTunes and the iPod, you can usually audition just the first 30 seconds of a song and then have to pay 99 cents foreach one you want to download. it. Napster has access to a huge library of music, and you can also just select (without downloading) whatever mix of music you want and use Napster as your personal radio station. The one downside of Napster is that you have to maintain your subscription or you won't be able to play the music you downloaded to your player. Good luck.
Unfortunately you are not going to be able to go online to sync your device...All music subscription such as napster and rhapsody require you to sync your device every single month using their actual software..The reason is to prevent customer from cancelling their music subscription..once you cancel your membership all the songs you have on your device will become useless.In another word, you are renting the music from the subscription company...
P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep
1. go to the settings menu on your player
2. go to USB and change it to MTP
3. Plug it into your PC
4. Open My Computer and right click on your player
5. Click on format
6. open windows media player
7. click on library and start adding songs to your player
8. click on "sync" at the bottom of the playlist on the right
9. that should do it!
When you see "SYNCHRONIZE TO CONTINUE YOUR MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION" that means you need to sync your device again because you are using a subscription service like napster or yahoo music. Because you are using subscription songs you have to periodically sync your player with your computer so the subscription can confirm you are still a member
first you must format the player using msc mode then after that retransfer the songs to the player. If you are receiving this message it means that the songs on the player have expired. This is normal if you download the songs off rhapsody, napster or any online music stores and if you have ripped songs iwht copy protect music on it if you ripped them using windows media player 10.
