Unable to play new songs added to MP3 player

I just added 5 new songs to my MP3 player.  I purchased the songs from Wal-Mart.com music store.  I added them using WMP.  I am getting the message "sycronize to continue your music subscription".  I don't have a music subscription, what's going on?  Why won't it let me play these songs?

Wal mart downloads are notorious for not working with subscription devices (i.e. - devices that use rhapsody, or yahoo.).

You have 2 options;

 1) dont use any music from wal-mart

 2) burn the music to a cd, the re-rip them to your PC, thusly removing any copy protection and then re-transfer them to your device.





Best of Luck.

How do I delete duplicate songs from my e280 song list?


You can have a try Leawo Tunes Cleaner. Just follow below steps. If you still have issues or have a massive music library in iTunes or other music folders that requires a more powerful and less time-consuming option, the third-party software like Leawo Tunes Cleaner can help you. It can not only automatically clean up duplicate songs in iTunes, but also automatically delete duplicate songs in other music folders. If you want to automatically remove duplicates in iTunes, the automatic duplicate remover might have the answer for you.
1. After kicking off Leawo Tunes Cleaner, click the "Clean-up Duplicate" entry. The program provides 2 duplicate scanning modes: Quick Scan mode and Deep Scan mode. Select one of them to scan duplicate songs.
2. You could delete duplicates in iTunes music library by directly clicking "Scan iTunes" button or click "Add" button to load music files for duplicates removing.
3. After loading source music files, click the "Scan" button on the upper-right corner to start scanning duplicates. The program would display all duplicates clearly and suggest what to remove. You could decide which duplicates to delete by checking them and then click the "Remove" button to remove duplicate songs.

How to get rid of the "synchronize to continue music subscription" message if it just appears out of nowhere on your player- this fixed mine when it gave me that message:

delete the STORE.HDS file in the system/wmdrmpd directory of your sansa (optional)

import your protected songs into WMP, and resync your protected music (with WMP) in MTP mode

play a protected song and let it rebuild the store.hds file (you will experience severe lag for about 15 seconds as it rebuilds) and the music should play.

The songs are copyright encrypted - convert them to mp3; that is the problem with WMA format. Also, make sure you have the Windows 2000 driver.

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

Transfer music from ipod to m250


I'm assuming your iPod music is in iTunes. You can point Windows Media Player to the folder on your PC that iTunes stores music in. For those songs that are ripped from your CD collection, they will appear in WMP to be synced to your Sansa. That's the easy part.

Unfortunately, your music that you purchased from the iTunes store will not. There may be an easier way to do this, but this method will work. First, burn your iTunes purchased songs to a CD, then rip them back to your PC. Set WMP to also look in the folder that you rip to for music in addition to your iTunes folder. You can identify several in WMP so once you establish the library, you won't have to switch back and forth between your iTunes library and this new library. You will then see that music in WMP to be synced as well.

Again, unfortunately, the songs from the ripped library will not have the song, artist, year, genre, etc., but you can edit this information easily. Right click on each song that doesn't have good info, and choose the "Advanced Tag Editor" option from the menu. There are several tabs that will appear in the window, and you can put in as much or as little info as you'd like. You can use your iTunes library to get this information from.

It is a bit of a tedious process, but it works!

Good luck.
