My sansa e200 mp3 player

I downloaded some songs from walmart downloads off the internet a little while back. The first time I synced the songs it worked. One day I was on my mp3 player and the mp3 player showed on the screen [sync music to continue your subscription]I'm not sure what to do now? By the way my computer is a windows xp.

It shouldn't be this difficult. Since your music plays okay, then it seems the trouble is with the DRM protection aspect of the books. First thing you need to do immediately after downloading is to play the book for a few seconds to acquire the license. After that, here's a step-by-step guide on how I successfully sync to my Creative Zen Nano Plus:

Plug in player, which computer will then recognize.
Open WMP10 and then click the SYNC tab.
Click RECENTLY ADDED along the left column - your desired book(s) should be among those items to appear.
Upper right, in the small, square box for devices, your player should appear as the transfer location.
Now, physically drag the book(s) across to the right, and drop the item(s) along the right where it says "drag items here" [vertical rectangular box].
Click START SYNC at the bottom of that very box to send all of those books to the player.
When WMP says 100% complete you should have your playable (items)!

Of course, delete everything off your player first so the system doesn't think you already have a (listen-able) copy there. If the above doesn't work, then you've got a dud on your hands.

What that means is that you have to connect your device to the computer, download a new track and then transfer it to the device...If that doesnt solve your problem most likely we will have to format your device...
Let me know if that doesnt solve it so I can have you do something else aight?
P.S. Please rate accordingly
Thank You

Yes, unfortunetly that does happen a lot! Sometimes the songs do not get transferred very well. Its usually a glitch sometimes in the programming. I usually try to download the same song again.

Cant switch to MSC on sansa e260


Try this instead:
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

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.

-Plug in your mp3 player

-Go into 'Limewire', select a song and go 'Locate file/Open Containg Folder', you should be in your folder with all your songs. or go 'My Music' and find your music files.

-Either select all your songs, open them with 'Windows Media Player' and transfer them that way.
-Or 'Open My Computer' then open 'Sansa e200' and drag the songs from where your songs are located [My Music] to the 'Music' folder in your Sansa e200 folder.

Wont play songs


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
