Re: Video not copied to the player

Make sure sansa is plugged into computer

if it is/was:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
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:

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 cannot add videos to my sansa e260 4 GB media player

Are you syncing the videos through Sansa Media Converter? This is the only program that will work to put video on the E200 series Sansa's.

If you are using SMC try using "Any Video Converter" to make the mp4's then sync them through SMC.

Video clips, photos and audio books copied to my sansa fuz 4 gb

You might need to convert them to a format (codec) your player supports. The Sansa comes with something called the Sansa Media Converter which is meant to do that.

Lots of good information here:

My media converter wont send videos or pictures to my sansa view.

The Sansa e260 only supports their video format, did you convert it to that format before trying to load it? You can find the converter here, on the right side of the page -

Downloading videos

Check The Photos folder in your computer on the MP3 and if the videos are in the picture folder then copy the vids and paste them to the video folder. if you dont have a video folder in the mp3 hard drive then create a new one called VIDEOS in CAPS. then paste the vids in that folder. after that delete the vids in the pics folder. hope this works. RATE PLZ. :P
