I have a Sandisk e280 and I like to download books from the library to listen to. I just started doing this and now this message comes up...."Synchronize to continue you subscription". I purchased my MP3 player from Dell. It came with the Rhapsody/Sansa Media Disk. All I want to do is be able to listen to my books. I would like to stay away from Rhapsody to download because they have no books. I use "Over Drive" to down load Audio books from the Omaha Library but now I cannot listen to them because I need to synchronize my MP3 Player....can you help? I have tried using Windows Media...doesn't work. If I rip CD's borrowed from the library and sync it to the player....it works but that message keeps comming up it I download it on "Over Drive" to my computer then transfer to my MP3 Player. I need major help......Please advise.
To get rid of that message, you need to connect your Sansa to your computer and open the Rhapsody software to "deauthorize" your Sansa (assuming that you're not going to be using the Rhapsody service).
The following URL gives you two options on how to deauthorize your device (look at the bottom section of the page):

Audible books are protected, you can copy them into device, but you can't play them (...subscription...appearing ). You must use audible manager to sync audible books.
You should delete audible books that make pop up a message " synchronize to....", otherwise, your device always pops up the message when it meet the audible books.
Go ahead and hook your mp3 player up to the PC and hit the sync tab in Windows Media Player. Disconnect it safely and try playing one more time. If that fails, remove the audiobooks completely from the Sansa and reload them.
You might also want to double-check Sansa's website - it seems that one of their firmware upgrades related to Audiobook play.
Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really, the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device.
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.
I received the same error message.
When you download a file from a subscription service, such as an audio book from a public library, you usually have to open the file on your computer first, which I believe, "activates the subscription" with the appropriate license. Some of the services pop up a screen telling you that your license is activated, but others, such as Overdrive, seem to do this automatically.
When I downloaded a book and transfered it to a Sansa c240 mp3 player, I received the "synchronize" error message, but when I went through the above procedure and transferred to the mp3 player, no problems, and no error messages.
