SOURCE: no files on sansa m 240 but appear on computer

Try formatting your mp3 player which might fix this problem. Also do some updates from the manufacturers website. This may be a known bug which your mp3 players manufacturer may have found and made a new driver version for.

http://www.sandisk.com/driverdownload/index.asp

To format follow these steps below:

First go to "My Computer" - now look for your mp3 player usually named under for example "Removable Disk F", when you've found it "Right-Click" on it then click on "Format", when format is complete try after that.

Any further problems leave a comment on this page and i will get back to you.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

SOURCE: can't download songs

I don't really know how Rhapsody works - do you have to download strait from the site to player, or do you save the files to your hard drive in between. If you have them as individual mp3 or wav files on your hard drive try using a different media player.

I did read in the installation guide for my ma566 that its not compatible with downloads "purchased from" itunes. Maybe its the same thing with Rhapsody?

Re: the xp vs win98 - on a phone call to Nextar tech support, I was told that if you have XP you don't need to use the driver disk but you might need to help the computer search online for updated drivers. I'm not sure if your saying your issue is that your COMPUTER is acutally 98 when it was "supposed to be" Xp, or if you are trying to use the 98 driver disk on xp and its not working.

Did your computer ever even recognize that the mp3 player existed? Or are you getting a specific error message?

SOURCE: Request DRM Time

The DRM license on your songs was for a fixed term - right click an individual song that is giving you this symptom, click on Properties, and click on "license" or "digital rights" or however your particular configuration words it, and acquire a new license. you may have to renew your music service subscription to renew the DRM license, and then resync the player one more time.

Drm won't install in rhapsody


Rhapsody will not work on an iPhone unless you jailbreak (which is not advisable). Apple wants you to use iPhone. You can use music you bought from Rhapsody and import it to your iTunes and then sync.

"I am thinking about subscribing to rhapsody because they have unlimited downloads for a monthly payment. Then I found that those music and videos are DRM protected so they wont work with my ipod. But can I remove DRM from Rhapsody? If it is ok what is the best DRM remover/converter?"

Also, Amazon Unbox, which was rebranded as "Amazon Video on Demand", only play in desktop applications that support Windows Media DRM, thereby excluding devices such as iPod or Zune. Then, how to remove DRM from Amazon Unbox files and enjoy them on other player?

It is the most commonly known method. But it is costly (waste CDs) and time consuming, especially when you have a lot of music.

How do i synchronize my subscribtion


Hi,
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 
For Rhapsody: 
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!
3. Here is a link to get the Sansa Firmware updater to update the firmware for your device automatically: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 
4. Click on this links if you are asked to synchronize your device with rhapsody? http://reclisten.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/reclisten.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=6606&tabName=tab3 

For others: 
Contact music subscriber for instructions on how to renew as they vary.

SOLUTION 3 - Rename the Windows DRM folder 

NOTE:  The Windows DRM (Digital Rights Management) folder contains licenses for secure media files such as your subscription tracks. 

STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the PC to show the hidden files      
Windows XP: 
1. Double-click My Computer
2. On the Menu bar, click Tools > Folder Options, and then click the View tab. 
3. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to select Show hidden files and folders
4. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to clear Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 
5. Click Apply, and then OK

Windows Vista: 
1. Double-click Computer
2. Click the Organize button at the upper left corner. 
3. Click Folder and Search options. 
4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders
5. Click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box. 
6. Click Apply, and then OK

STEP 2 - Rename the DRM folder 
1. Double-click My Computer > C: > Documents and Settings > All Users
2. Right-click the DRM folder and select Rename
3. Rename this as OLDDRM
4. Run the subscription service program you are using and renew the licenses to recreate the DRM folder with new licenses. 

STEP 3 - Synchronize your device once more on MTP mode 


SOLUTION 4 -  Format the player under Windows Media Player

My husband got somemusic on my go gear mp3 player and it wont let me listen to it it says file format not supported and i dont know how to take them off or get more on!


The songs that you are playing are either in AAC (iTunes) format - which is not supported by the player - or they are DRM-encrypted. If you really do have an SA6045, the player can definitely handle DRM encrypted-WMA's. If you have a newer Philips - different model # - then the player may not support DRM-encrypted files. The best thing to do is to download songs (or convert songs from CD as the other helper suggested) that are in pure mp3 format. Examples of services that do this are Rhapsody's Mp3-only Subscription (other Rhapsody subscriptions are DRM-encrypted, which will not work); or Limewire (make sure the format you are downloading is mp3 and not something else).

My e250 will not sync with Rhapsody and I believe it is a windowns drm issues on the device


This player IS DRM-Compatible, but DRM-protected files almost invariably cause problems at some point. Unplug the Sansa, Uninstall all the Sansa software, and reinstall the software. Replug the Sansa. See if Rhapsody will now recognize it. Try synchronizing.

There is a workaround, but it is illegal - you can get a DRM stripper, and then just use Windows Media Player to transfer the now-DRM-free songs.
