Videos only play for 8 seconds (Sansa View 8gb)

My mom just bought this for me for Christmas and I can download music and pictures even video. But when I play a video, it only plays for 8 seconds and then goes back to the video menu. I even went to the website "Converttube.com" and it lets you convert videos then download them. Can you all please help ? What file format does this mp3 player need. mp4, wmv......

Its not playing videos


First step --
Download a PDF copy of the Sansa View manual. Here's a link:

http://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=sansa+view+manual&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

There are two likely reasons for the video not to work;
1) The software that runs your Sansa View, known as 'firmware', is outdated;

2) Your video requires conversion before you download it.

1) Firmware update?
Download a copy of the Sansa Firmware Updater from here:

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4431

Start it on your computer, and follow the directions to update your Sansa View's firmware, if needed.

2) Download and install the Sansa Media Converter (SMC) from the same link above.
--Plug in your Sansa View to the computer, and run the SMC.
--Follow the directions to select your video. SMC processes one video at a time for upload into your Sansa player.

Another possibility - Try loading video from Windows Media Player 11;

From the manual, page 17--
"Your Sansa View player supports MPEG-4 Simple Profile up to VGA, H.264 Baseline Profile up to VGA, and WMV up to QVGA video formats.
That means you can simply drag and drop these files into the Video folder if you are using Windows Media Player 11."

Hopefully, that will help you get your videos in!

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

SanDisk Sansa View Slim 8gb Screen Cracked


I broke the screen on my e200 series 6gb so I asked Sansa tech support about it and I was told that Sansa does not own any repair or support facilities whatsover. This means that you really can't get it fixed without either buying a new one or getting it replaced altogther.

The Sansa will only show photos and play videos from its internal memory, not the microSD card. You can put music on the card, but not photos or videos.
