Unable to upload photos to Sansa View


Download from the sansa support site > http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4431/related/1/kw/media%20converter/r_id/101834 the firmware updater for your player model. The Media Converter is free to use. You can access the converter down load from the updater program. Now also the Sansa player can hook up to a computer in two different modes. Through normal use it can switch modes on it's own, although rare it can happen. Now stuff added in one mode can not be seen in the other mode and you can not delete the files. So you have MSC mode which means Mass storage class and is the best mode to use. Then MTP mode means Media transfer protocol, you have to use this mode if you use Napster and such to download MP3's with protected content (DRM) you have to set the player to one mode or the other, to see the files and delete the files you want to delete or to find the missing room. MSC makes your player look like a thumb drive, and is easy to use. Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player. With the player hooked up to the computer via the USB cable. Drag and drop your video into the "video" folder. Be sure the video is converted into the proper file format. Sansa players use the following video and music formats AVI, MPEG-42_bing.gif, MP3.

If your want add music/video Connect your MP3 player to Computer via USB cable.
It will automatically running ( if not running go to my computer - Removable Disk - Open
If you have music/video in your computer (check video format)
Emerson MP3 player support 3GP video format. If don't have a video converter software go to, http://convert-video-dvd.com/video-converter.html
Download Software and Install in your computer.
Converter video in 3GP format.
When video convert in 3GP format, copy this video and go to removable Disk(mp3 player) and Paste.
It should be working.

How do i transfer my Ipod libary from one computer to another?


Hey!
In your case, you can use an iPod Transfer tool to transfer iPod library to a new PC. You can have a try of this Wondershare iPod Tranfer, by which you can transfer iPod library to new PC, tranfer music/video from PC to iPod directly without using iTunes. You can free download it at: http://www.dvd-ripper-copy.com/ipod-video-transfer.html#181.
Hope that helps.

I can't get my downloaded video files to transfer onto my device


it does work with vista, the reason it won't convert, is because you do not have the latest video codecs on your computer.

Do a google search for software called Prism Video converter, it is free and if you try and convert a video file on this, it will automatically download the codecs you need to convert it to the correct format. Once it downloads the correct codecs, load up your arcsoft media converter for philips that your unit came with and convert it. You have to use this program or it will not play on your player.

I have tons of tv shows downloaded, etc, and had to do it this way, AND I am using vista. Good Luck.

Downloading videos


Check The Photos folder in your computer on the MP3 and if the videos are in the picture folder then copy the vids and paste them to the video folder. if you dont have a video folder in the mp3 hard drive then create a new one called VIDEOS in CAPS. then paste the vids in that folder. after that delete the vids in the pics folder. hope this works. RATE PLZ. :P

I can't get videos off my player!


How it up to the computer with the usb cord, once it shows connected go to (depending on the operating system)

Vista or XP
Start
Computer
Double click: Sansa
Double click: Internal Memory
(if this is where your video are saved)
or Double click on: Expansion Card

Either way, you will see all the files on your Sansa or memory card

Double click on the file; example video, the file will open and you will see all the video saved in the file; right click on the video(s) and click delete. File will be gone.

***DO NOT RIGHT CLICK THE FILE TO DELETE
THE ENTIRE FOLDER WILL DELETE ---- OPEN THE FOLDER
AND DELETE WHAT YOU WANT IN IT.

Any other problems let me know.

Problem with downloading videos to philips SA6087/37


First, download the latest version of the GoGear software on the Philips website (compat with Vista).

Second, go to the Microsoft website and enter ArcSoft Media Converter in the search box to get addl software that will make it compat with Vista.

Third, check and see if the same file has the same DRM license on both computer. SomeGoGear's only read files with DRM encryption; others only read files without it. Make sure the licesnsing is the same on both computers - the Windows Media Player with Vista may or may not have this feature (if it doesn't get a PlaysFor Sure program for vista on the Microsoft website).

Philips Go Gear MP3/Video Player 2 GB (Model SA3125)


The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.
