Synchronization has nothing to do with formatting.
It has more to do with timing, such as a time setting.

The Sansa Clip works with Windows Media Player 10 or 11, easily syncing playlists to the player from your PC.

it works with Vista, Windows XP SP2, and Windows Media Player 10 or 11. You can download MP3 or WMA files onto the player. SanDisk says the 1GB Clip can play about 15 hours or 250 MP3 songs and about 30 hours of music and 500 WMA songs. The 2GB plays up to 30 hours and 500 MP3 songs, and 64 hours and 1,000 WMA files.

Windows Media Player, my PC recognizes the Sansa Clip player immediately. It does not list the songs that are already on the player, but it makes it simple to create a playlist and sync it to the player.

you need at least media player 10 or better( xp automatically loads 11, 2hrs40min on 56k) then you must have service pack 2 winxp ver. or MP11 wont finnish loading. then you can start with your computer recognizing your new hardware and loading music.

Hope this helps.

    Try your Windows Media Player settings.
    See if you have the "copy protect music" option checked.

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Contact Sandisk here: support@sandisk.com They should give you a reasonable response in a matter of days.



    For furture reference update the firmware on your player for better usage, http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.as...

    One more thing You must continue your subscription to rhapsody or some other music on
    line store. Where are you getting your songs from????? You need to
    renew your subscription with them.

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    If your using Rhapsody:

    rhapsody. Click tools->Deauthorize Computer. Confirm that the tools menu now contains Authorize Computer.

    Click Authorize computer.



    Then resync.

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    This is for windows media player:

    a) Open Windows Media Player
    b) Click the Synchronize tab
    c) In the drop-down menu on the right, choose the device that you want to format (It may already show your Sansa device as selected)
    d) Click the Format storage media button (the pencil icon)

    Make sure to save ur files or songs before formatimg..

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Another cause of the Sync error that many people are seeing is that the battery is running low in the device. Apparently a low battery can cause the internal clock on the device to begin running slow which throws it out of sync. This behavior can be seen well before the device stops playing your non-subscription music.

    Replace the battery and then transfer a single track over to the device. This should refresh all of the other licenses.

I recently purchased a Sansa Clip MP3. I downloaded audiobooks to it but they will not play. What do I need to do?


Not true!!! The Sansa Clip is actually the best mp3 player I have found for listing to audiobooks. Here is what you need to do. Download the latest firmware update on the Sandisk website. You must do this or it just won't work unless you are downloading books from Audible.

I use the Overdrive Media Console and download mp3 and WMA books from my state library. When you hit transfer, be sure it hit advanced options. Browse until you select the audiobook folder on your player. Then transfer to that.

The player will bookmark your last place on anything that is in your audiobook folder. You can easily switch back and forth between your music and book without losing your place! Love it!

It even has a sleep timer on it. I'm in heaven.

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.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription?


Go ahead and hook your mp3 player up to the PC and hit the sync tab in Windows Media Player. Disconnect it safely and try playing one more time. If that fails, remove the audiobooks completely from the Sansa and reload them.

You might also want to double-check Sansa's website - it seems that one of their firmware upgrades related to Audiobook play.

You will need to sync the deivce to Rhapsody or whatever msuic svc you have been using. If the subscription has lapsed, you will not be able to use the songs anymore.

Sansa e250 keeps saying "SYNCHRONIZE TO CONTINUE YOUR MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION"


Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

Maybe you should mention that if you format, it will delete all your songs?

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.
