Re: sync music to continue listening...

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.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription???????????

You need to renew your Napster memebership - unfortunately, there are no permanent freebies with that music svc - must constantly renew

My sanansa wont let me listen to music

If you use napster which has protected music needs you to connect your mp3 to your computer every so often to renew the music. If you are using the trial version of napster be aware the music transferred only last for that trial time so that is the catch with napster.

Needs to sync

When you first synced your Sansa Clip to the initial computer, you probably synced it (knowingly or not) with a music subscription service such as Napster or Yahoo. If the subscription has since expired, you will get this message. Alternatively, if you tried connecting the Sansa player to another computer which does not have the aforementioned music service, the Sansa player wants to verify that your subscription to the service is still good. The best solution is to hook the player up to the original computer, and resync it with Napster or whatever music service you were using by opening that music service's program. Most of the time, when you connect the Sansa player to Windows XP, Windows will prompt you: Windows will ask what you want to do with the device. Instead of "Take No Action," just sync the player with Napster (or whatever music service you have a subscription to) - Windows will give you this option. If you music service subscription has expired, a more deatiled process may be required which falls outside of the scope of this solution. Try this suggestion first - if it fails, e-mail me back (don't send me a personal e-mail - reply through the FixYa website - I want documentation of everything).

Can't play music

Hi there. "Syncronize to continue your music subscription" is normally an indicator of the following causes, depending on the source and type of the music that you have on your M240: (1) If your music files came from a subscription music service provider (Napster,Yahoo, Rhapsody for example): This would mean that the licenses for these subscription songs need to be updated. They must be updated at least once every 30 days. You must use your subscription music service's software to resync the songs (the process varies depending on the service). Also, you would get that "sync" notice if you've cancelled your subscription. (2) If your music files were ripped from an audio CD: The best solution would be to once again "Rip" these audio CD files using Windows Media Player, version 10 or 11. Before ripping, ensure that the "Copy Protect Music" option is unchecked by going to Windows Media Player's "Tools", then "Options", then selecting the "Rip Music" tab. If all else fails, the best "last resort" would be by setting the M240 to MSC mode and formatting it in Windows Explorer or "Disk Management" I hope this proves useful. I know it's quite a bummer when you have a whole bunch of songs just sitting in your player with a "Sync" error.

Finding the music to delete

Use Media Monkey instead, or change Windows Media Player's configuration, so that it sees more songs.
