Yep, hardware acceleration only applies to the primary output.

You can either use the video card's software to switch screen1 and 2 around (which puts your taskbar and everything on the external screen) OR

You could try going into media player's "advanced" preferences tab and look for video acceleration and hardware acceleration. Turn all of those off, and it might work by dragging the player to the external screen.

I usually put my laptop video card into "clone" mode, so both screens are identical... that works for me, and it's also easier for me to control or see what's going on because it's still infront of me.

Let us know!

Computer does not show entire contents of mp3 player.


Hello,
Albums that have been put on the player in Windows Media Player in MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) mode can be viewed in the Microsoft Media Player.
Hidden music can be viewed in MSC mode when switching the player into this mode, viewing the player as a removable disk. Warning: when switching the player into MSC mode be sure to go through safely remove hardware, the icon in the right corner of the computer's screen.
How to switch to MSC mode, have a view in the manual. Select your version player online from the support page:

More information about hidden files in the operating system on the computer, see next link:

I was given a cd of files to view. i don't want to appear stupid....but how do i view and hear it?


Insert disk in cd tray & close the drawer, if auto-run is enabled an action window will pop up, select open folder to view files. There's a tick box, lower left, tick here to perform this action each time this type of media inserted will set your computer up to open to view each time you insert this type of disk. Other route..
Start- my computer- right click on CD-rom- open.If there are media files, when you right click you can select Open-with..This lets you choose your player, windows media player is a good option.
Hope this sheds some light.

Some premium channels have DRM locks so that they aren't able to be copied or played on other players, which is most likely what's happening here.

regards
Diego

Nr 1:
Let us update your player's firmware:

Step 1 – Connect the player in Recovery Mode.

1. Turn off the player.
2. Slide down the Hold switch along the left side of the player down so the orange is showing.
3. Press and hold the HOME button and connect the device to the computer.
4. A message will appear on the device display screen confirming the connection and a 16MB partition will be viewable in My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista).
5. Release the HOME button.

Download and update the firmware.

1. Download the firmware file:

Click Here for the Sansa View Firmware update file

2. Extract the zip file.
3. Copy the extracted firmware files (*.dat, *.rom, *.mi4, and *.fnt) to the 16MB-FORMAT drive.
4. Disconnect the player. This will now start the firmware update.
5. Slide the Hold switch to the unlock position.
6. Turn on the player.
Nr 2:
It appears that this is caused by file corruption in your player's memory. Usually, formatting your mp3 player resolves this FM issue in your player.

Formatting your Sansa View Mp3 player in Disk Management:

WARNING - FORMATTING YOUR MP3 PLAYER WILL ERASE ALL MEDIA FILES IN YOUR PLAYER, PLEASE BACK UP IF POSSIBLE.

1. Make sure the Sansa View is turned on.
2. Engage the hold switch, located on the left-hand side of the player.
3. Press and hold the LEFT BUTTON ( << )
4. Connect to the computer while pressing and holding the LEFT BUTTON ( << ). Do not let go of the left button until the player is detected as Removable Disk.
5. The Sansa View should now be connected in MSC mode and should appear as a "Removable Disk" or "Sansa View".
6. From the desktop, right click My Computer, then select Manage. If you don't see My Computer on the desktop, click on Start and right click My Computer from there, then select manage.
7. On the Computer Management window, click Disk Management from the left pane.
8. On the right side, locate your sansa device on the list (it might be recognized as removable disc), right click on the sansa device, then select Format.
9. On the Format Window, select FAT32 under File System and make sure that the Quick Format option is not checked.
(You might get a warning window about your files being deleted when you format the device, if that is not an issue for you, click ok.)
10. Click OK to start formatting the device. This should start the format process.
11. Once the formatting is done, unplug the device from the computer. Let the device refresh.
12. We can verify that formatting is successful if it shows no files on the player.
