The SanDisk Sansa m200 cooperates well with Windows Media Player 10 and
subscription-based applications such as Napster To Go; it works without
a hitch via drag and drop in Windows Explorer, even automatically
organizing your files.
This usually indicates that the content you are trying to listen to has digital rights associated with the media. This woud normally be the case if the content was downloaded via a subscrition service such as Napster or Rapsody, which means you are basically "renting" the song instead of buying it. In order to validate that the subscription for that media is still valid (i.e. you have paid for the subscription) you must sync the device with the service on a periodic basis. For example, with NapsterToGo you must sync a device at least every 30 days to validate the subscription.
Unfortunately you are not going to be able to go online to sync your device...All music subscription such as napster and rhapsody require you to sync your device every single month using their actual software..The reason is to prevent customer from cancelling their music subscription..once you cancel your membership all the songs you have on your device will become useless.In another word, you are renting the music from the subscription company...
P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep
When you see "SYNCHRONIZE TO CONTINUE YOUR MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION" that means you need to sync your device again because you are using a subscription service like napster or yahoo music. Because you are using subscription songs you have to periodically sync your player with your computer so the subscription can confirm you are still a member
first you must format the player using msc mode then after that retransfer the songs to the player. If you are receiving this message it means that the songs on the player have expired. This is normal if you download the songs off rhapsody, napster or any online music stores and if you have ripped songs iwht copy protect music on it if you ripped them using windows media player 10.
"Syncronize to continue your music subscription"
is normally an indicator of the following causes, depending on the source and type of the music that you have on your M240:
(1) If your music files came from a subscription music service provider
(Napster,Yahoo, Rhapsody for example):
This would mean that the licenses for these subscription songs need to be updated. They must be updated at least once every 30 days. You must use your subscription music service's software to resync the songs (the process varies depending on the service). Also, you would get that "sync" notice if you've cancelled your subscription.
(2) If your music files were ripped from an audio CD:
The best solution would be to once again "Rip" these audio CD files using Windows Media Player, version 10 or 11. Before ripping, ensure that the "Copy Protect Music" option is unchecked by going to Windows Media Player's "Tools", then "Options", then selecting the "Rip Music" tab.
If all else fails, the best "last resort" would be by setting the M240 to MSC mode and formatting it in Windows Explorer or "Disk Management"
I hope this proves useful. I know it's quite a bummer when you have a whole bunch of songs just sitting in your player with a "Sync" error.
