You don't need new firmware or a new driver. You need to download the Sansa Media Converter from Sandisk's website.

    Ive been trying to add photos to my SanDisk Sansa


    u may check it carefully and follow this guide:
    The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player as well as the memory card in your Sansa player.

    NOTE: Only the Sansa e200v2, Fuze, and View allow viewing of video files from the memory card.

    STEP 1 - Download and install Sansa Media Converter
    The Sansa Media Converter application is available via the Sansa Firmware Updater.


    STEP 2 - Convert and transfer your video or image files

    NOTE: To see a list of supported image/video file formats, see Sansa Media Converter does not convert a file

    1. Run the Sansa Media Converter.
    2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
    3. If a Portable Device windows appears, select Sansa Media Converter using Sansa Media Converter.

    4. The Sansa player should appear on the left pane of the Sansa Media Converter console.
    id101-2.gif
    5. Click Add Media to add video or photo files to be converted and transferred.
    id101-3.gif
    (In the sample below we imported an image and a video file)
    id101-6.gif
    6. The converted files are stored in My Album by default. To place them in a different folder, select My Album then type in a new name.

    7. Depending on what Sansa player that's plugged in or if a microSD is present in the Sansa player, click on the Sansa player or the microSD card on the left pane to select where to transfer the converted files. (in the sample below, we selected the microSD card)
    id101-5.gif
    8. Click Convert to covert the files.
    id101-9.gif
    9. Once the files are converted it's automatically transferred to the device or microSD.
    10. Click OK when finished.

    Problem with transfering photos and videos to my Sandisk Sansa e26 and uploading music...HELP!


    Everyone - install quicktime to get the right codecs to fix the video conversion issue

    everyone else:
    Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
    -----
    Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
    Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
    Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
