Re: 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).

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.
If your device can play some songs before, then it appears "...subscription..." meaning that Songs are protected or expired. You used Rhapsody to sync songs before? If so, trial expired or after 30 days the songs expired. Therefore, you need connect your device to Rhapsody do subscription.
The Sansa Clip is not compatible with iTunes. You will have to get your music from another music service, preferably one that gives you the songs in mp3 format instead of AAC format (although it will accept WMA's, the DRM-protection system on most WMA's will give you problems down the line, especially if you cancel the music service that you got them from - songs in mp3 format will be usable even after you've cancelled your music service subscription).
What you will have to do is transfer a new song from the subcription company..or you can try to format the device (formatting will delete all the data) and then your device will be back in working mode..
I hope that helps
Please rate accordingly
my guess is that some of the songs you downloaded from limewire or walmart have DRM embedded in them. the ones from walmart you should be able to sync and renew the DRM license, limewire songs ... you're S.O.L.
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
