Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
To transfer videos and photos on your Sansa, you need to have the Sansa
Media Converter installed in your computer. This software is included
in the CD that came with your Sansa. You also need to set the USB mode
of your Sansa to "Auto Detect" or "MTP" (Media Transfer Protocol). If
you are transferring music that you have purchased or music that are
licensed and/or proctected, you would need to use the MTP mode.
If you add songs to the player in one mode, then switch to the other mode, you will not be able to see the songs from the previous mode, though the space used on the player will still reflect their presence. If you cannot see your songs on your PC in one mode, please try viewing them in the other. In order to change the USB mode of the player, you must power the player on and go to "Settings." Under "Settings," there should be a "USB" option. It would then give you the choice to change it from "Auto Detect" (MTP which is also known as Playforsure in other Sansa) to "MSC (Also known as Rhapsody in other Sansa)."
To transfer videos and photos on your Sansa using the Sansa Media Converter, please follow these steps:
1. Click on the "Add Media" button on the upper right corner of the Sansa Media Converter window.
2. In the "Open" dialog box, locate the photos or videos that you want to transfer to your Sansa. Please read the supported file formats in the "See supported file formats" link in the Sansa Media Converter window.
3. Click on "Open" to add the photos or videos.
4. Click on the "Convert" button to transfer them to your Sansa in a supported and appropriate format.
You may also transfer photos and videos in MSC Mode. To add songs using the MSC mode, follow these steps:
1. Organize your songs into folders and place it into one directory.
2. Open "My Computer" and open the "Removable Disk" drive for your Sansa.
3. Copy the directory that you have created into the Sansa.

He Sandisk technical support told me you must use the Sansa Converter to transfer a video file.I also came across this,
DVDShrink 3.2, its free and can dl from http://www.doom9.org/Soft21/Vobtools/dvdshrink32setup.zip
Any Video Converter Free edition, AVC can dl from http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
If DVD is copy protected I use AnyDVD from www.Slysoft.com There is a free trial period but well worth the money and has lifetime upgrades for free
First use Shrink to rip the DVD. If its got copy protection then first launch AnyDVD then relaunch shrink
You can set shrink to either rip the entire DVD or just the main movie and its its pretty self explanitory, Just select the one audio you want or go to a site like doom9.org if need further info on it. I usually click the Reauthor button and select just the main title and the one audio track I want. then click backup
Then Run AVS. Select the vob files you want to put on your View. For encoding I use the folllowing settings:
Profile that worked for me using VOB sources is : Customized MP4 movie, others say to use Mobil phone mp4 but I have bad luck with that one myself.
From the menu: Edit, Options:
-MPEG Type: MPEG-4
-Object Type: Main
-MP3 Volume: Default
-Audio Quality: Default
-Video Driver: DirectX
Video Resize must be checked for non-native 320x240 (4:3) video sources. Use “Fit to Width” for widescreen video sources, use “Fit to Height” for long video sources. Both “Fit” modes must have checked “Round to 16 Pixels”. In this way you preserve the aspect ratio of the original source, while still creating a View compliant 320x240 video.
From the output video settings box on the lower right:
-Video Codec: x264 (IMHO produces slightly better video, but slightly larger tho)
-Video Size: 320x240
-Video Bitrate: 512
-Video Framerate: 29.97 (again 29.97 for NTSC DVD and other NTSC sources, others keep at their original framerate, this will keep audio in sync) I set to 30 fps and have had no problems so far
-Audio Codec: aac
-Audio Bitrate: 128
-Sample Rate: 44100
-Audio Channel: 2
-Disable Audio: No
-A/V Sync: Default
-Audio Track: Default
Click encode and it will create the proper format files.
Then to add the videos to your View open 2 explorer windows one browse to the folder the files were outputed to and the other go to your view and open the Movies folder.
Then just drag the files from yoour HD to the View folder.
To be fair some of this info I got from other posts here but so far its worked the best for me
