Synchronize your music subscription....

I have worked and worked to try to fix this problem. I even formatted my player, added new music, and still get the same message. Any suggestions? It is driving me crazy!

The music files that you have transferred are in WMA format - when your music svc subscription expires, or the licenses on them expire, then you will get this annoying message. Convert the files to mp3 format, and you will never have that problem again.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription


The "synchronize files to continue" is annoying, and you are likely to get it again. If the music files on your player came from Rhapsody, the short-term solution is to re-synch the files through Rhapsody itself. If your subscription to Rhapsody, Overdrive, etc. ever expires, you will also get this message. The only long-term way around this problem is to only load songs that are in mp3 format (Rhapsody has an Mp3-Only subscription, which is different from its regular subscription; Limewire is another choice - but it is prone to have viruses, and some ISPs will cut off your broadband if you use the service). If you wanted to erase all songs and start over from scratch, you could update the firmware on the player - it will have the side effect of erasing everything on the player.

Good luck!

Synchronize to continue your music subscription I got my mp3 player for christmas and was using Rhapsodys free 30 day trial . I down loaded several songs . Now I have this message and I cant hear my...


(to clear or 'erase' skip to format -below)
1ST: Just try to 'reset' by holding down the main center button AND pushing UP on the lock/off-on button, for about 8-9 seconds,
It will then 'refresh' the database, shouldn't lose anything,
OR:
Most other problems can be fixed ultimately by the following;
REFORMAT the SansaDisk Clip by finding it in My Computer and right click then just 'format' the thing. THEN drag and drop new music into it (or books), DRAG and DROP, you apparently erase the thing with a 'FORMAT' ....BUT - it's .sys files remain and it is like new {as in empty}
This usually fixes almost anything, should even erase a virus (I'm guessing) but shouldn't hurt it.
Good Luck!

-simple 'drag and drop' from my MUSIC folder seems to work just fine for me...

Cannot synchronize my music subsceription


unfortunately, the mp3 player and the music svc do not always match up exactly - in this case, you will have to remove all songs and then try reloading them

Use mp3 format songs and you will never have this problem

Synchronize to continue your music subscribtion???????


You have to synchronize your Sansa to a computer that has a current subscription to Rhapsody, and you have to sync the Sansa to that same computer at least once every 30 days, or the Rhapsody songs will stop working. Use a different music service that is free, or convert all of the songs to Mp3 format to get around the problem. If you get a subscription to another music svc, then you must maintain a current subscription with whatever new svc you choose as well.

Maybe you should mention that if you format, it will delete all your songs?
