Re: sync

The "please sync" refers to songs that are part of a subscription service, like Rhapsody, or Yahoo Music. If you have one of there, you need to connect to your account and update your license(s). If no, the problem is probably with you own music files. See if the following sounds familiar; - You are using some music from your own Cd's. - You used Windows Media Player to copy the cd's to your computer. - You have not manually changed any of the "default" settings in Windows Media Player. If these apply, by default Windows Media Player "copy protects" your music, giving you the "please sync" error message. To resolve this, you will need to change the "copy protect" option from WMP. Tools>Options>Rip Music, un-check the box for "copy protect". Then delete the songs on your player that are from cd's. Then, re-copy them to your PC. Then, re-transfer them to your device. You can add to this question for more assistance. Best of Luck.

I have a message on my sansa clip that I want to get rid of so that I can continue to listen to my book. I can't listen till this is straightened out. It says synchronize to continue your music...

Audible books are protected, you can copy them into device, but you can't play them (...subscription...appearing ). You must use audible manager to sync audible books.
You should delete audible books that make pop up a message " synchronize to....", otherwise, your device always pops up the message when it meet the audible books.

When I sync unknown error pops up

I'm not sure about error -48, but most often an error like this is caused by a corrupt music file not being able to be copied and stopping the sync. First, see if you can sync another playlist that doesn't contain any of the same songs. If it works, then it's just a matter of figuring out which song is corrupt. If you watch what song the sync is hanging on, sometimes you can pick it up quickly. ...good luck.

Make sure that your music service subscription is up to date. Even if your subscription is up to date, some audiobooks/music files require you to pay extra to play the file on your Mp3 player -it's a dirty little game they play.

Sync notice

Yes I solved the problem..I contacted Rhapsody and they told me my 30 day period had been expired and I needed to renew my subscription which would be $14.99/mo. All the songs that I downloaded onto my mp3 I thought I would automatically get after the 30 day period was over...guess not!

Error Message

You have to synchronize your Sansa to a computer that has a current subscription to Rhapsody, and you have to sync the Sansa to that same computer at least once every 30 days, or the Rhapsody songs will stop working. Use a different music service that is free, or convert all of the songs to Mp3 format to get around the problem. If you get a subscription to another music svc, then you must maintain a current subscription with whatever new svc you choose as well.
