Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa e260 4mg

I use the packaged computer program "Sansa file converter" to convert video podcasts to a useable format and it appears to convert them and put them on the MP3 player no problem. However when I try to playback the files it says "use the sansa file converter program to convert this file to a useable format??? I thought that's what I'd already done. Consequently I havent' been able to watch a single video on this mp3 player! Please help
