Renaming My Pictures

Well, my problem is that i can't rename my pictures in my computer. (It is a windows Xp) Everytime I try to rename a picture, a message saying the following, appears: "If you change a file name extension,the file may become unusable. Are you sure you want to change it?" And I always answer " no " and i don't know what to do to change the name of my pictures because if i click "yes" the file can not be opened later and becomes trash. Any answers will be helpful. Thanks!

Re: Renaming My Pictures

If your afraid to click yes, copy another image of the file and rename it by clicking yes, you'll be sure you wont lose the original file. read-only file are the ones that warn you this message, you may change its properties to archive.

When you connect the player to a computer with the USB cable you are able to explore the device as a Removable Disk, just like
exploring the computer in Windows.
The player should show up as a volume with a letter of the alphabet.
The USB device is 2G sized and should contain a map for pictures.
For transferring pictures see page 29 of the manual:
Briefly worded:
1. Explore your computer for the desired pictures in jpg format.
2. Next use the copy and paste method.
1. Open the pictures map on the computer + map on the player.
2. Next drag and drop pictures from the computer onto the players map.

Help with pictures?

In order to add pictures, you need to go to the Media>Pictures folder (go to My Computer1.gif>Opal (should be listed under Audio Devices as Opal with an icon that looks sort of like an old Minidisc player - you might have to scroll down to find the icon once you click on "My Computer in Win XP), and add pictures from your collection.
P.S. Please rate accordingly...
Thank you

Picture and photo download / transfer not working

Ok, I think I have figured it out!! I was going crazy trying to transfer pictures/video with no success and was about ready to give up - then on a whim I tried this:
1. Make sure your Sansa is connected to your computer.
2.Open the Media Converter
3.Click on Menu (up at the top next to where it says "Powered by InterVideo)
4. Click on "Tool"
5. Click on "Option"
6. This brings up a window where you can change the temporary path. Click on the button that says "..." and then find the Sansa on the list. Click on it and then "OK". The path should be changed. Click on "OK" to close the window.

Hopefully you will be able to get your pictures and videos uploaded very easily now. No clue why it doesn't do this on it's own in the first place. I ran the updater and everything. But whatever, it's fixed now. =)

Order File for Audio Book

Can you rename the files? If so, try renaming the single digit chapters to have two digits - for example 1 becomes 01, 2 becomes 02, etc.

Keeping chapters in order

I fixed this problem by renaming the chapters from 1 to 01 etc. I found the mp3 player would store them in logical order i.e. 1 followed by 10 which was not what I wanted, by renaming the first 9 chapters 01 to 09 this resolved the problem. N.B. I tried to track down Reorganize on the web but gave up as I could only find a German site and I cannot speak German.
