First - Rhapsody can be … er, less than user friendly in my experience. I prefer Windows Media Player when it comes to syncing my music to my players. Honestly, unless you plan on buying subscription music there’s no reason to use Rhapsody - least not that I can think of ^^;
What syncing means is one of two things:
You’re ‘syncing’ your music library on the computer to your player. This basically means putting songs onto your player from files you have on your computer. Fancy word for a pretty simple task
You’re ‘syncing’ licenses for songs that have been purchased or have some sort of protection on them. Songs that fall into this category have some extra files that go with them that ‘allow’ you to play them.
The reason you’re probably getting the message, if I were to guess - would be because the songs you pulled from your CDs copied as wma files. WMA files are great, but they’ve got this nasty little ‘copy protect’ thing that can be attached when you take them from CD and put them on your computer. More than likely that’s how Rhapsody copied them and why you’re getting that message.
The easiest solution? Make sure your songs copy as MP3 files - easy, no fuss files that will play no matter what (well … most of the time). The other option is find out how to turn the ‘copy protection’ off. I know how to do it in WMP but not in Rhapsody - unfortunately you still run into having to re-copy all the songs from CD again. :\
The only way I’ve been able to get rid of that “Pleasy Sync” message in the past is to delete the songs (from player & computer) and start from the beginning.
Though, now that I think about it - you could also try deleting the songs from the player and then reloading them with your play in MTP mode … that may allow it to play the ‘copy protected’ WMA files, but don’t quote me on it. If you’ve already got it in MTP mode then see my first suggestion
