Rhapsody software download

I purchased the sandisk sansa e260 and it came with a 30 day free trial of the rhapsoday/best buy digital music store. i have been trying for over a week to install the program with no luck. everytime i try to download it, it takes hours on end, then it gets to 99% downloaded, then says there was a problem and won't finish. or i can get it downloaded, but when i try to open it, it states that it is already running and there is new updates. so it says it will close rhapsody that is running, to update software, and again, it finds and error. one time it stated that it might be due to firewalls etc, and to turn them off in order to get them to work, which i did, but still nothing. the rhapsody program was on my computer, but everytime i try to open it, it gives me the same problems. so each time i would delete the files and try to download again, with no luck.
it let me sign up at one time, then i when i went to log on, started all this stuff again. so my 30 day free trial is counting down, yet i cannot even get to the site. i have tried the disc that came with the sandisk and also via the best buy website. neither are wanting to download correctly and it's getting frustrating. any ideas?

If you have a Windows version that is older than XP, Rhapsody will no longer work. The written documentation says it will, but this is dated information - you will have to get Windows XP or Vista for it to download Rhapsody. Most other music svcs are the same way.

Renew your Rhpasody or Napster subscriptions and reload/resync the songs - those two service shave fixed-term licenses

SOURCE: My XP system does not recognize Sandisk Sansa e260

The XP did not recognize the device because I used a after- marked USB expander board that did not provide enough power to the device. Plugging to the Motherboard - attached USB port solved the problem.

Free Rhapsody downloads?


Yes you do. There is a way around the problem of having to maintain your subscription, but it gets expensive - if you buy an mp3 file from the Rhapsody Mp3 Store, it will give you the file in mp3 format, which will always work even after you let your subscription lapse. More expensive, but ultimately longer lasting.

Well i had the mp3 player for about 2 months and now it says "your subscription has expired. connect to your PC." then it says "synchronize to continue your music subscription" would i still be able to...


I actually had that same problem. You got it from Best Buy, correct? What happens is the trial for the Best Buy Rhapsody downloads expired. That basically means that all of the music files you downloaded from there have been locked and you can no longer listen until you purchase a rhapsody subscription. What I did when that happened to me was to delete all of the songs and just reload everything. It's rather inconvenient but it does work. For future reference, it's a lot easier to just never try out that trial because erasing it is quite a challenge.

Vista not compatible with rhapsody.


I use Rhapsody with Vista. You need to go to Rhapsody's website (or Best Buy Digital Music Store, which runs the same software) and download the updated version, which will work just fine.

Purchased music from iTunes can be put on Sansa players as well when you set-up Rhapsody to manage your music. Have the program detect your music library and then all you have to do is drag and drop to your MP3 player.

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)

Will eventually lose songs downloaded?


Okay, here's what i've encountered:  songs that I downloaded on rhapsody, without purchasing, only lasted about 7-10 days unless i reconnected.  once my trial period ended, i lost all the songs.  songs that i've purchased i've had no trouble (although if you load them to the sansa immediately after download, you may get the same message.  its best to wait at least 24 hours).  good luck

Need file transfer Software!!!???


You do not need any specific software to transfer music. You can Drag and Drop files thru Windows XP or Vista, or use Windows Media Player 10 or higher, Rhapsody, or several other music management programs.

The only software on the CD was Rhapsody, or the Best Buy Digital Media Store. Both of which are on the internet.

Use rhapsody for the trial period and now My SanDisk Sansa e200 won't acknowledge any downloads on my e200 since I didn't sign up for rhapsody. How can I get my e200 to allow download from somewhere other...


If you didnt delete the music from your trial subscription with Rhapsody, they are still on the device, taking up space. Your device will allow any type of music to be transferred, it doesnt have to be specifically from Rhapsody. Best idea is to "format" the device to remove everything and try transferring the music onto the device. Connect the device and go to My Computer>Device Name, then right click on the device and select format. This will erase everything. If you are not able to format the device, change the mode, then try again. Device>Settings>mode or USB Mode. Reply if you have more problems. Best of Luck.
