You MUST renew your Rhapsody subscription - that is the problem with WMA's - use an mp3-only service and you will never have this problem

My sansa clip wont play the songs it says synchronize with music subscription why


If your device can play some songs before, then it appears "...subscription..." meaning that Songs are protected or expired. You used Rhapsody to sync songs before? If so, trial expired or after 30 days the songs expired. Therefore, you need connect your device to Rhapsody do subscription.
Good luck

Had a subscription to rhaposdy, cancelled it and now the player will not play the music that was downloaded. because the subscription expired how do i get rid of this?


Audio files from music subscription services come in several formats - Mp3, WMA, AAC, and sometimes WAV. The Rhapsody trial is for a subscription level that gives you the songs in WMA format. They have a license system on them called DRM protection. That is the problem with services that give you WMA files - once your subscription has expired, you cannot use the songs anymore, no matter how much you paid for them.

Your solution is to subscribe to Rhapsody's Mp3 Only service - it is more expensive, but you can continue to use the songs after your subscription has expired. Rhapsody offers several subscriptions - the only one that will solve your problem is the Mp3 Only service. Cheaper alternatives are more risky (virus-prone), but they include Limewire, Frostwire, and Morpheus - beware: all 3 of these services offer songs in multiple file formats - make sure that the songs you download are in mp3 format. Some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use Limewire.

Within Rhapsody itself, there is an option to synchronize files to your device. You will have to use this feature with your Sansa Clip connected to the computer. Since the songs are already on the device, this will prove difficult. You may actually have to delete the songs off your player, and then reload them through Rhapsody to get them back on the player. Painful and tedious, but that is the only workaround that I know of using Rhapsody's WMA files.

A better solution would be to change your Rhapsody subscription to their Mp3 Only subscription level. It is more expensive, but the songs you download through that subscription level will continue to work, even after your Rhapsody subscription has expired. And it will never give you the message that you mentioned in your problem description, because mp3 files do not need resynchronizing b/c they do not have DRM license restrictions.

I actually had that same problem. You got it from Best Buy, correct? What happens is the trial for the Best Buy Rhapsody downloads expired. That basically means that all of the music files you downloaded from there have been locked and you can no longer listen until you purchase a rhapsody subscription. What I did when that happened to me was to delete all of the songs and just reload everything. It's rather inconvenient but it does work. For future reference, it's a lot easier to just never try out that trial because erasing it is quite a challenge.

No Music!


You have to delete all those Rhapsody songs and start over. Even if you renew your Rhapsody subscription now, it may not return the songs to normal. That's the problem with most music services - once the subscription expires, the songs are done.

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...

Sandisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player problem


The songs that are on there were probably taken from the Rhapsody music service, or some other subscription music service. You must continue/renew the subscription to be able to continue playing them on the Sans clip.
