Well to purchase the rights for the song you can (and should !!) use Napster. Its completely legal, the software is free. You can choose to pay per month for a thing called napster to go. You can have that cause your mp3 player is comatible with that special. its 15 $ a month, you get unlimited downloads to your mp3 player! and all legally. Or you have the option to buy songs or albums for 1,19$ the song or about 9,99$ the album. And the selection of artist is huge. go to www.napster.com for usa, and www.napster.ca for canada.

"Bad Track" Messages on e260

You have songs that may be protected or the wrong format for your device.
delete the bad song and download another copy from a different source and try it.
This is not to uncommon due to different file formats and protection in the song files
When you rip songs from another device often some won't load or play in another device
especially if they are paid for songs.

Music download

The songs that you are playing are either in AAC (iTunes) format - which is not supported by the player - or they are DRM-encrypted. If you really do have an SA6045, the player can definitely handle DRM encrypted-WMA's. If you have a newer Philips - different model # - then the player may not support DRM-encrypted files. The best thing to do is to download songs (or convert songs from CD as the other helper suggested) that are in pure mp3 format. Examples of services that do this are Rhapsody's Mp3-only Subscription (other Rhapsody subscriptions are DRM-encrypted, which will not work); or Limewire (make sure the format you are downloading is mp3 and not something else).

My insignia NS-2v17b MP3 player will only play 3 songs. The other 56 songs downloaded on it are skipped. While trying to go between songs the MP3 player will beep several times. I counted and it beeps for...

Yes. You have to have an active account to keep listening to those songs. On another note (no pun intended) anything that you OWN in your music files will play for you.
I quit the subscription from Best Buy, deleted the songs I didn't own and now I am satisfied.

Downloading

Songs from most music services have what is called DRM encryption on them - it is a license that will only allow you to do certain things with the song. Your songs probably have play rights, but not transfer rights. Upgrade your music service subscription.

It won't let me listen to music

There are a few different possibilities.

1)Your subscription to your digital music service such as Napster, etc has expired. Sorry - unless you renew your subscription, you will not be able to play these songs again.
2) Your songs have DRM-encryption on them. To check and see, right click on an individual song name in Windows Media Player, and click on "License" or "Digital Rights"; if the affected songs have DRM encryption, then get DRM-removal software.
3) Your songs do NOT have DRM-encryption on them. In this instance, follow the procedure for item#2, except click on the link in the License or digital Rights tab that says "acquire license" (make sureyou are connected to the internet first).

My sandisk e260 wont play songs i down loaded

Well, I may have a solution. Some music websites or "free" mp3 websites put a type of license or protection thing on the files that you download so that when you try to listen to them, you can only use certin software/music players and also make it so you cannot use any of the files on your mp3 player/iPod. I tried a place called emusic.com and they say you get 20, or so, free downloads BUT you can only use their music player for them. And the funny thing is, they have avertisements in about half of the packages of new mp3 players in the market. Try looking at their policy or license on the website to see if you can put the songs on your mp3 player. Good luck, and have a nice day.
