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
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:
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
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
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.
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
