You will have to use the Sansa Media Converter to add the video files. Available from Sandisk's website.

Hi, I have Downloaded an episode of a TV program that I am willing to copy it onto my Sansa. However I have copied it many Times and when I turn my Sansa On to watch it the screen says its an unsupported...

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

Loading music from sansa

iTunes uses AAC copies of music files. The Sansa Clip needs the files in WMA or MP3 format. You need to find a free audio converter online and convert the songs you want to MP3 or WMA format. Many programs will create a converted copy while still retaining the original AAC copy.

Videos not playing properly.

This a problem with the Sansa Media Converter program not the player. You can try reconverting the files, both in the mpeg4 program and in SMC. This a trial and error solution. Some mp4's will never sync correctly. Good luck.

I want to know how to put videos on my sandiisk

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
Any Video Converter Free edition, AVC can dl from
If DVD is copy protected I use AnyDVD from 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 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:

Audio Tab:
-MPEG Type: MPEG-4
-Object Type: Main
-Encode: CBR
-MP3 Volume: Default
-Audio Quality: Default

Video Tab:
-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 Options:
-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 Options:
-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

Sansa e280 fm recordings

First, try to copy the files to your PC. Make sure you have a CD burning program and drive of some kind. WAV files are very large compared to Mp3 files, so you may be only to fit a few on an AUDIO CD. If you burn the WAV files to CD as a DATA CD, then you will be able to fit more files onto a single CD, but you will not be able to play that same CD in a CD player.

Mp4 player nano has stopped working

You are copying an unknown format to your mp4. Some mp3/mp4 handles a different type of audio and video files. Read your manual and check what particular audio and video files it can read. Look for an audio and video converter on the net. install it on your pc, convert your audio/video files to a format your mp4 can read and copy it to your mp4. I hope this helps you.

A Simple Thank you is Good Enough

Help me get videos

Allright. Once you have converted the videos to a compatable format (with this particular player its quicktime .mov.) copy paste them in a file called 'VIDEO' without the quotes and in caps. Then restart the player and it shoudl refresh the list and they should appear there. If not. Go into control panel, appearence and settings, folder options, folders and then make windows show hidden files/folders. Manually place the video files in the original video folder.
