    Just purchased e250 MP3 (sandisk) Everything seemed ok. I ripped a song from a cd and it worked, the radio worked, when I transferred songs from Rhapsody, sync is ok, the screen says I need to sync or shows the song as playing but no audio. I am ready to return it and get my money back.

    I've had this mp3 player before and it worked fine until I dropped it. I never did this pain in the neck Sync thing. But this new one does it all the time I've already whipped it and reloaded it four times and it still does it almost once a month. I have Yahoo so it is not Rhapsody or any other music things fault. Any suggestions???

    I got an mp3 for Christmas, and it came with two free months of songs from BestBuy, and know it says that i have to 'synchronize my tracks to continue subscription'.Anyone know how to synchronize tracks?

    i really want to listen to my tracks that i have added. they're with rhapsody and my subscription is up to date. only the tracks that i have purchased work and every time i want to listen to a subscription track it says i must synchronize my tracks to keep listening.

My sansa is showig up the message synchronize to continue music subscription

When you use a service like Rhapsody or Napster and download "unlimited music" as part of a subscription, you periodically need to sync the player to prove that you are still paying a subscription fee, or the subscribed music will not play. Just sync the player (plug in with the USB cable) to a PC which has a valid subscription to the service that you use. Make sure you log into the service before you sync so that the new keys are picked up.

If you have a subscription to a service that has gone out of business (Like Yahoo Music Unlimited), you may just need to delete the subscription music from the player.

My sanansa wont let me listen to music

If you use napster which has protected music needs you to connect your mp3 to your computer every so often to renew the music. If you are using the trial version of napster be aware the music transferred only last for that trial time so that is the catch with napster.

Sansa won't play songs

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

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

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.

Synchronoze to continue music subscription

I treat my Sansa like a disk drive and simply transfer the files from my hard drive to the Sansa via Explorer.  The tracks purchased from Napster can be downloaded to your hard drive.  Then I exit Napster and use Windows Explorer to simply transfer the data.  Works great for me for the past month!
