Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player

Loading protected songs onto MP3 player

Greetings, and thanks in advance for the help.

I have loaded several songs from CDs I own onto my MP3 player, using Windows Media Player to rip the songs. Some of these songs are protected; however, I downloaded the appropriate licence(s) to render them useable. When these songs come up in my playlist, the MP3 player states that I must sync in order to continue. However, the player is already sync'ed, so i don't understand why I keep receiving this error or how I can fix it.

Can anyone help, please?

What I would recommend you to do is to delete the songs that are not playing for the device then transfer them back...Your SanDisk Sansa does not allow you to delete files from within the player.
Instead I recommend that you follow the steps below to delete the music
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
Hope this helps

P.S.Please rate accordingly...

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.

First you need to convert the songs on the CD into mp3 music files then you copy these mp3 files to your mp3 player.
There are several freeware rip programs on the Internet that rip CD songs into mp3 files.
Do a Google search for these rip programs and install the program on your computer.
You can use Windows Media Player, it can rip music CDs and convert the music files into mp3 music files.

Not playing songs/ transferring to MP3 player on Rhapsody.


You probably have to redownload the songs again. Forget about the pictures, this player is pretty buggy, it's not worth it.

Can't transfer my current itunes list to my new Zen Mozaic


every song you buy from iTunes is protected, therefor you will not be allowed to put it onto another device. a good idea if you have a CD burner in your computer is if you make a CD in iTunes (by making a playlist and burning it to a CD)m and put it into another player. if you have windows you can use windows media center to get the songs. if you have something else it is just as well. when the songs go onto the disk most likely they will not have any protective code on them and you can easily use them. also a downfall is that you might lose all the names...yet you can just look back on iTunes. make sure to label the CDs.
