I can't transfer songs to my Sansa e260

I bought my Sansa e260 and at first it worked goog. Then all of a sudden it said that I had to Sync my device to continue music subscription. I deleted songs and put them back on again. It worked for about a month and then it said it again, so I deleted the songs but when I tried to put them back on they won't show up and it says Transfer Error on Napster. I have been looking around and I can't find anything to help me.

    I have a sansa E260 and I use Napster To Go (were you sync every month and download one more song). But recently any song i tried to download from Napster said transfer error.



    When i double click on the red transfer bar a dialog box came up and said 'click here for more information', so i did, but nothing happened. It does that on both the laptop and desktop.



    And if i down load music from a CD on to my computor and the to my device that works just fine. So i was/am so confused and i finaly foun someone with the same problem.



    My Aunt saw that there was an up date available so we got that but nothing changed.

    I am having the exact same problem. I also have napster to go, and in the past, as long as I transfered one new song to the device each subscription period, the player transfered songs just fine.

    However, when I got my new laptop (the same model as my old one, a replacement due to a manufacturer defect) I was no longer able to transfer napster subscription content.

    I have talked with 3 tech support agents, 2 from sandisk and one from napster, and no one has been able to help. The napster agent said the drivers were not installing correctly with ERM protected content. The licenses are fine. The Sandisk agent tried to help, but ultimately said I need a desktop to update the firmware, as my laptop is not recognizing my player in MSC mode. I have no access to a desktop though! Can anyone help?

    Same issue here...have had Napster for probably a year, things worked fine, and then this billing cycle, can't seem to synch the songs at all. I tried downloading and transferring new songs, and nothing...it gets about 50% through the download/transfer and then it says "tracks transferred to your player" but the download status shows that the track has an error. And of course, the file isn't there. Unfortunately, it's not updating my existing licenses and I can't add new songs, so not sure what to do.

Downloaded books from the library won't play


I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.

You need to synch them to Rhapsody or whatever music service you pulled the songs from. also, make sure your music service subscription supports transfer to portable devices instead of simple transfer to a computer.

Mp3 Player - sansa sandisk 2 GB


Unfortunately you are not going to be able to go online to sync your device...All music subscription such as napster and rhapsody require you to sync your device every single month using their actual software..The reason is to prevent customer from cancelling their music subscription..once you cancel your membership all the songs you have on your device will become useless.In another word, you are renting the music from the subscription company...

P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Synchronize to continue your music subscribtion???????


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.

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

The synchronize notice appears when the 30 days pass without connecting and synchronizing your device while you are signed in.
