If you're trying to play it on the Sansa you need to use Sansa Media Converter to get it into a format the Sansa understands. If you are trying to play it in Windows then you need to have the right codec installed. To do that you'll need to know what format the video is in (MPEG-2? MPEG-4? etc.) and then find the right codec via Google and install it.

I imported pictures and it doesn't show on my sansa it says unsupported media format


The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player as well as the memory card in your Sansa player.

NOTE: Only the Sansa e200v2, Fuze, and View allow viewing of video files from the memory card.

STEP 1 - Download and install Sansa Media Converter
The Sansa Media Converter application is available via the Sansa Firmware Updater.


STEP 2 - Convert and transfer your video or image files
NOTE: To see a list of supported image/video file formats, see Sansa Media Converter does not convert a file
1. Run the Sansa Media Converter.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
3. If a Portable Device windows appears, select Sansa Media Converter using Sansa Media Converter.

4. The Sansa player should appear on the left pane of the Sansa Media Converter console.

5. Click Add Media to add video or photo files to be converted and transferred.

(In the sample below we imported an image and a video file)

6. The converted files are stored in My Album by default. To place them in a different folder, select My Album then type in a new name.

7. Depending on what Sansa player that's plugged in or if a microSD is present in the Sansa player, click on the Sansa player or the microSD card on the left pane to select where to transfer the converted files. (in the sample below, we selected the microSD card)

8. Click Convert to covert the files.

How do i add memory to my player. now it has 2 gb and i want to replace it with 16gb


You can't augment the internal memory, short of replacing the entire motherboard. And if you're going to take the innards out of another Sansa, why don't you just use that other Sansa instead?

You can add memory in 2GB chunks by using microSD cards. Photos and videos must be in the 2GB internal memory, but any music you put into a MUSIC folder on the card will appear and play on the Sansa. By putting different albums (or sets of albums) on different cards, you can easily switch between them.

Be sure you use microSD cards, not microSDHC cards.

A 4 GIG MEMORY DOESNT WORK IN ,MY E250


The Sansa e250 uses microSD cards. Your 4GB memory card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Can I buy additional memory? My SanDisk is full. Also, I have tried to download an album and can't because the device thinks it already has it, but I sure can't find it.


Yes, you can add more memory. The e250 has a slot for a microSD card, and those cards come in various sizes up to 2GB. You might see larger cards, but those are actually microSDHC cards and won't work in the e250.

You can load those cards up with music, as long as you put it into a folder named "MUSIC." Videos and photos must reside in the internal memory.

As to downloading an album, check the file names as well as the album and artist names embedded in the file. Since you didn't specify the computer and operating system, I can't tell you specific ways of doing that. On Windows, Media Player should show you that information, though.

I baught a 4 gig memery card and put it in my player and it does not make any differentas


The e250 uses microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card and will not work in the e250. You need to limit yourself to microSD cards, which are 2GB at the largest.

You'll also need to put your music into a folder named "MUSIC" on the card. Pictures and videos will have to remain in the main memory.

Music from sd card is appearing but not the videos.


The Sansa only plays videos from its internal memory. You can play music from the microSD card, but not photos nor videos.

Problem getting video to expandable memory/sansa e250 to be recog


The Sansa will not play videos off the microSD card. It will play music, but not show videos or photos.

To get the videos onto the Sansa, use the Sansa Media Converter. If you don't have the SMC, you can download the Windows version from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3IPZO6Q0

4GB micro sd card.


According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
