Your getting that msg b/c some or all of the songs do not have "transfer rights" - that music service is bad, b/c you pay once for the subscription, and then have to pay again per track to be able to play the songs on your player.

I'm not sure if you're using a Sansa mp3 player or what, but you do not have to use Best Buy's music svc. You can use Napster To Go or a host of others. Bearshare is pretty nice.

How do i synchronize my subscribtion


Hi,
I'm not sure what's the subscription service to which you are subscribed. However I've given you the steps below. Try whatever suits for you.
This error typically occurs when the DRM licensed files have expired. 

SOLUTION 1 - Songs ripped from an audio CD 
If the songs were ripped from a CD using Windows Media Player, modify the Rip Music settings


SOLUTION 2 - Songs downloaded from music subscription service 
If the songs were downloaded from a music subscription service (e.g., Napster, Rhapsody, Best Buy music store, etc.), follow these steps:  
1. Make sure that your account subscription is updated and active. 
2. Put the device in MTP mode and connect to the computer, then log in to your music subscription account. 
3. Renew the licenses of your tracks 
For Rhapsody: 
On the Rhapsody console, right-click on your device and select License 
 

1. Check the date & time on your PC & on your mp3 player. They should be one and the same. 2. You need to synchronize your device with rhapsody once in every 30 days. It's a must. Failing to do so, you will not be able to play music in your mp3 player. Here are a few a steps to synchronize your device with rhapsody: 1.Open Rhapsody / Best Buy Digital Music Store and sign in 2.Connect your mp3 player to the computer 3.Go to My Account --> Update Track Licenses 4.Transfer a track to your device 5.Disconnect your device and enjoy music on the go!
3. Here is a link to get the Sansa Firmware updater to update the firmware for your device automatically: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 
4. Click on this links if you are asked to synchronize your device with rhapsody? http://reclisten.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/reclisten.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=6606&tabName=tab3 

For others: 
Contact music subscriber for instructions on how to renew as they vary.

SOLUTION 3 - Rename the Windows DRM folder 

NOTE:  The Windows DRM (Digital Rights Management) folder contains licenses for secure media files such as your subscription tracks. 

STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the PC to show the hidden files      
Windows XP: 
1. Double-click My Computer
2. On the Menu bar, click Tools > Folder Options, and then click the View tab. 
3. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to select Show hidden files and folders
4. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to clear Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 
5. Click Apply, and then OK

Windows Vista: 
1. Double-click Computer
2. Click the Organize button at the upper left corner. 
3. Click Folder and Search options. 
4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders
5. Click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box. 
6. Click Apply, and then OK

STEP 2 - Rename the DRM folder 
1. Double-click My Computer > C: > Documents and Settings > All Users
2. Right-click the DRM folder and select Rename
3. Rename this as OLDDRM
4. Run the subscription service program you are using and renew the licenses to recreate the DRM folder with new licenses. 

STEP 3 - Synchronize your device once more on MTP mode 


SOLUTION 4 -  Format the player under Windows Media Player

Cant play songs off my playlist


AAAaaaahhhhhh...

You can thank Microsoft for creating Digital Rights Management.

Okay...I'm assuming this is an MP3 that you loaded using the Rhapsody-to-go or other music service that allows for subscription music.

What the MP3 player is telling you is that because you have subscription music and not purchased music, the DRM allows you to only play the song or songs 30-90 days after download. To continue to listen to the songs, you will need to open your Media Manager software (Best Buy Digital Music Service, Rhapsody, WMP11, Media Monkey, etc) connect your MP3 player to the PC, identify the MP3 player through the media manager and tell it to re-authorize your tracks. Once its finished you'll be able to play your songs for another 30-90 days. You will need to repeat this re-authorizing to continue to play the tracks.

Sansa e260 won't let me download certain music


If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.

"Synchronize to continue your subscription"


I did a search on "synchronize to continue your subscription" and found this solution on another forum. I tried it and it worked.
"Just changing the sansa transfer mode will fix this issue: If the Sansa player shows MSC, change it to MTP: 1. Eject the device and unplug it from the computer.
2. On the device, push the Menu button.
3. Go to Settings > USB.
4. When you see 2 settings, Auto Detect and MSC, select Auto Detect. (Auto Detect causes the Sansa player to use MTP whenever possible.) Decatur."
