Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

Open Question

Sansa Media Converter Freezes at 50% everytime.

I have tried uninstalling the device and having windows install it again. I reinstalled the software on the computer. I updated the firmware for the device. I also did a cold reboot of the sansa view by holding the power button slider down for a number of seconds. No matter what I do... It will not work and it will freeze at exactly 50% when converting movies to the Sansa. I have tried different formats of file extensions that it says it is capable of handling but I don't think that is the culprit.

Both my computer and the SMC software sees the device. The Sansa View has had one successful movie installed on it. Hope this helps.

    I also noticed that too
    I've tried a ton of videos and sometimes they work and sometimes they don't
    is there a specific pixel ration I need?

SOURCE: igot converting problem, please help!

Well, I use a program called SUPER. You can get it at http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html. It doesn't automatically add the file to you player, but it converts just about anything. You could also try the Total Video Converter shareware, which you can download at www.download.com. It too converts most things, but I find that it is a lot easier to use. It doesn't automatically add the files either, but you can do that by going to my computer and clicking on the player icon, going in until you find the music folder, and copying and pasting the file in there.

Yes. The program is available for download from the Sandisk website.

GO TO SANDISK.COM.

Type your model number into the search box in the upper right hand side. (example: E250)

Click on the photo of the model you purchased.

Scroll down and you will see on the right side- "Support, Docs and more"-

Click on that-

Then click on the "Sansa Media Converter"-

It will then take you to a registration page. You can skip this by clicking the "Skip registration".

Now you will be at the download page.

If you have any trouble getting to this, please contact Sansa at their toll free phone number: 1866SANDISK.

Set the device to MSC mode (default is Auto) in the USB properties on the Sansa device. This worked for me with a Sansa Fuze on Windows XP running Sansa Media Converter 1.0. Hope this helps.

Substitute REC fo volume + in the following:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
