Hi!
I have a sansa view and i want to transfer music to it from my laptop which has window vista on it. the windows program won't detect it and I don't know how to use the converter. When I tried downloading the firmware, it said it failed because of a MTP something or another!
Please HELP ME!! because i deleted all the music off of my sansa view

Hi there, I use WMP too and have had good results with it. My thought is some files can not be played like some avi files won't work. They have to be windows compatible or they won't work on your mp3 player. Be careful what you download too (viruses) can affect your players software. I would do a virus scan before transfer. Good luck.

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.

Do we need any software to for sansa view 2.4 to downloadfiles from computer


Not for music; you can simply drag&drop files to/from the Sansa.

If you want to put pictures and/or videos on the Sansa, then you'll need the Sansa Media Converter to convert the files into a form the Sansa can handle. If you don't already have the SMC, you can download the Windows version from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3IPZO6Q0

Plug the view into the computer via usb and find where your music files from frostwire are downloaded to (most likely your Shared folder) and copy or drag the destined files to your Views Music folder and then unplug when your view is done transferring and all the songs you placed in the folder should show up.

Sandisk is not detected in Vista operating system notebook


See the FAQ here - http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_view/faqs

The most common reason for this problem is not having the latest Windows Media Player installed, or having a Windows OS version that is not supported by the Sansa player.
The Sansa players support Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista and above. If your operating system version is supported by the Sansa player:
SOLUTION 1 – Download and install the latest Windows Media Player

SOLUTION 2 – If that didn’t help, and you are running Windows Vista, apply the following hotfix - KB940199
SOLUTION 3 – If that didn’t help, download and Install the MTP Porting Kit (click here)
SOLUTION 4 – If that didn’t help, try connecting the device to the PC using MSC mode

View/c200: Turn on & press and hold the rewind button while plugging into the PC

Can not view my music files on my laptop (but can on my desktop)


Get the latest firmware upgrade - this player wasn't originally designed with WMP 11 in mind. Also, make sure the laptop has the folders "My Documents" and "My Music" on it - this is primarily where WMP reads from.
