The songs that you got are probably from the Rhapsody trial. Once the subscriptino expires, you will on longer be able to play those songs on your mp3 player.
To avoid this problem, only purchase songs that are in mp3 format from Rhapsody's Mp3 Store. You will find that mp3 players are expensive propositions in 2009 - it used to be much easier/cheaper.
If you want to go with illegal but free (I do not reccomend it), you can get songs from Limewire, Frostiwre, or Morpheus. Three warnings I must issue:
1) Only download songs that say "Mp3" under file format.
2) Some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use limewire
3) Make sure you have strong Anti-Virus software on your computer, b/c the free svcs are littered with viruses/adware/etc.
it's asking that you verify the DRM status (i.e., that you bought it and it resides on YOUR computer.) It cannot play the file until you synchronize it with windows media player. You can delete them off of the MP3 player just by noting which songs don't play and deleting them through windows explorer when the player is connected.
The Sansa player always wants to sync with the first/original computer that you hooked the player to to make sure you still have a paid subscription to Rhapsody, Napster, etc (sometimes it works if you hook it to another computer with an open internet connection so that it can verify that the subscription is still good).
the best way to put music into the mp3 player is by using windows media player 10, click on sync and put all the songs you want in the sync list then click on start sync and it should sync properly without any problems.
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.
