Forget what the manual says, It only seems to work if I convert video files to .avi and then convert them via the Sansa Media Convertor.
If you try it with WMV it goes through the motions and then forever hangs.
Since I have converted vob and flv to .avi I have had no problems and the conversion is as fast as you would expect - but you can see the progress until complete.

The Sansa e260 only supports their video format, did you convert it to that format before trying to load it? You can find the converter here, on the right side of the page - http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_e200/faqs

Won't hold pics or vids


You have to use the Sansa Media Converter to "convert" the files to a recognizable format. Standard image formats do not work. The Sansa Media Converter is on the installation CD. Best of Luck.
