Do you use Napster by any chance? Some music services actually remove songs after the subscription expires, or if you haven't synced your Sansa to that service within 30 days. Convert all songs to mp3 format, and you will not have that format.

Also, your DB could have become corrupt. A firmware upgrade usually resolves it.

The problem is that you might have unplugged your device, before all of your songs could sync onto your device. Try plugging your device back up to your computer and sync the songs on there that isnt already on your device.

Try reformatting the player as FAT to erase the storage memory. Use the PC to do this and not the internal "formatting" option.

Best of luck!

Write the songs to a CD (or a CDRW) first, then re-rip them to Windows Media Player/iTunes/whatever as mp3s, or unprotected WMAs.

Honestly it's easier to burn and re-rip than remove the copy protection. When you burn it to a CD, the DRM goes away, and you'll have a new file that actually plays on your player.
