I cant place song into my sansa e250


Did you use a media player such as Rhapsody?
You need to sync the music, not just dragging and dropping into the system's folder via My Computer.

HOW CAN I SYNC MUSIC TO MY SANSA E250..?


To sync music you have to first open the Rhapsody music player (If you don't have Rhapsody you have to download it fom the Sansa disk or you cannot add music). From there you can drag the songs you want from your library onto the icon in the list on the left that says "Sansa e250". On that screen there is a bar at the bottom that tells you how much space is left on your Sansa.

Hope this helps!

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.

Can't remove Rhapsody songs


Delete them through Windows Media Player or reformat the device:
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.

Sansa M250 Rhapsody Problem


Unfortunately you are not going to be able to go online to sync your device...All music subscription such as napster and rhapsody require you to sync your device every single month using their actual software..The reason is to prevent customer from cancelling their music subscription..once you cancel your membership all the songs you have on your device will become useless.In another word, you are renting the music from the subscription company...

P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

My sansa e250


hey smart ones(sarcasm) why dont u just buy the Sansa e250v2

its pretty much the same thing, just without rhapsody, thats how me and my friends are, i bought the one with rhapsody features(Sansa e250R) so i can play the songs that i bought and get free music channels for it, where my friend on the other hand has the Sansa e250v2 without rhapsody, u can still use rhapsody but u cant get free music channels for it, or u could also download best buy music manager or rhapsody and set up a free 31-day account for it to stop saying that for a while, plus if u got ur Sansa e250R from Best Buy, they can replace it, or trade u the sansa that u have with the rhapsody-free one(without rhapsody)

The "please sync" error means you need to connect to Rhapsody and sign-in. It will update your licenses so you can play the music.

If thats not working, your account is expired, or Rhapsody needs to check your account.

Best of Luck.
