Napster License Renewal Date Incorrect

I Just Signed Up For A Napster To Go Trial

I Launched The Player And Connected My Sansa Clip

And When I Clicked On the Status On My Device It Indicated A License Renewal Date Of 1/1/1970

Um? Did It Like Expire 40 Years Ago?

I’ve Tried Formatting My Device

Reconnecting The Device

Made Sure The USB Mode Was On Autodetect

Uninstalling And Reinstalling Napster

Updating From WMP 10 To 11

Nothing Seems To Work

Does Anyone Have A solution

IF No One Has A Solution I May Have To Cancel My Free Trial.

Thanks

WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

Set it to MTP. NEVER use Auto Defect!

I Tried Switching To MTP Mode But That Doesn’t Solve The Problem

I Was Even Going To Try Posting A ScreenShot Of What I’m Talking About But I Can’t Figure Out Imageshack.

By The Way If This Info Helps I’m On Windows XP Home Edition

Any Other Suggestions?

I Tried Setting It To MTP. Unfortunately That Doesn’t Help.

I’m On Windows XP Home Edition If I Helps Any

Here’s A Screenshot Showing What I’m Talking About.

A simple question, but:  is the Clip compatible with Napster To Go?

Seems like the answer to your question then should come from Crapster . . . err, I mean Napster. Have you tried contacting them and/or checking their forum (if they have one)?

This looks like a Napster issue. While I agree one should stay away from auto usb connect, the device should connect in MTP mode on those machines which support that mode.

I Double Checked Napster’s Website To Make Sure But Yes It Is Listed As Compatible.

I’ll Go Ahead And Post My Question To Napster Support And/Or Their Forum If It Exists.

Most of the music service subscribers here are members of Rhapsody; not too many Napster users, so when you find the answer please post back and let us know. Someone else may run across this same issue in the future and benefit from your efforts. :wink:

Sorry It Took Me Awhile To Get Back.

I Just E Mailed My Question To Napster Support

And I’ll Try To Get Back To You Guys As Soon As I Hear A Response From Them.

By The Way Like Most Of You Guys I’m Also Currently A Rhapsody To Go Member

In Which I Usually Have No Problems With,Unlike Napster.

Like I Said I’ll Get Back To You As Soon As I Get A Reply From Napster.

I don’t know about that . . .

Personally, I prefer to own my music, not rent it. Plus, I can choose what sound quality (by ripping CD’s into whatever format and bit-rate) I want to hear unlike the pay-to-play services.

That’s fine, but of course you do need a cd to start with. I don’t use a music service myself but I believe one of the attractions is the ability to pick individual titles. I’m not familiar with rent vs ownership so can’t comment on that aspect, I assume there is some cost advantage.

I Just Got A Reply From Napster

Unfortunately The Solutions They Gave Me To Try

I’ve Already Tried Before And Did Not Work

I Don’t Know If The Problem Is With My Sansa Clip,All Or Some Of The Sansa Clips,The Napster Player Or My Computer But

I’ve Finally Decided To Cancel My Napster Trial

And Just Stick With Rhapsody

I Seem To Have Much Better Service With Them(Rhapsody) And Yes Even Rhapsody Has A Few Minor Bugs Once In Awhile,

But Unlike Napster Those Are Easily Resolved

And Besides,Rhapsody Has Better Radio Channel Choices Compared To Napster

And To Answer Tapeworms inqiry About Renting Vs Buying I Personally Prefer Renting.

I’m Not Really Concerned To Much About Bitrate And Enjoy The Randomness And Unpredictabilty Of Radio Playlists.

On A Final Note At Least It Was A Free Trial And Had Nothing To Lose

I Mainly Wanted To Compare The 2 Services And As Far As I’m Concerned It’s No Contest.

Rhapsody’s The Clear Winner Here.

I don’t know if it’s properly thought of as “renting”, as a subscription service gives you access to the media, be it music via Rhapsody, or Cable / Satellite TV access.  I have three daughters, and purchasing new music would be a scary proposition, as rapidly as their tastes change in these 'teen years.

I really like the Rhapsody Channels feature, as it’s a great way to explore new music, and find those old favorites remembered by ear.  One click of the center button, and I have the selection in my library.

It sounds like something bizarre was going on with Napster.  With Rhapsody, I’ve found that deauthorizing the device, then reauthorizing it fixes this issue in seconds.  Rhapsody has made some long-anticipated changes in their newest client, making for a better experience all around.
