Preloaded Music Gone

I bought this unit under the advise of a Best Buy sales rep who said the plus for buying this mp3 is the free music.  About two months after purchasing the player, on vacation all of the preloaded music was inactive.  Does this mean that I must now buy this music to keep it?

To continue listening to the preloded music on a rhapsody device you will have to subscribe to Rhapsody's service.

Re: Preloaded Music Gone

Will that still be the case if I add the songs to the library on the player?

Re: Preloaded Music Gone

Any music you put on there will not do that.  The only music will do that is the Rhapsody Channels.

No you do not need to install Rhapsody.   Unhide your hidden files and folders and put the player in Rhapsody mode.  Look on the Sansa, then System, the Music.  You will see RAX files you can delete.

Re: Preloaded Music Gone

And the Rhapsody Channels will show as number strings (078951356etc.), you'll probably want to delete those too. And no, if you don't want to use rhapsody, it has absolutely no bearing on the functionality of the mp3 player. And slap that Best Buy rep who said the music was free. Sadly nothing is free in this day and age.
Having trouble with video transfer for your View? Try using the Any Video Converter (yes that's the name). It can be downloaded at www.any-video-converter.com (pick the free one) It's easy to use, just make it a .mp4
