Problem with transfering photos and videos to my Sandisk Sansa e26 and uploading music...HELP!

Hi. I'm having a problem transfering photos to my Sansa. I went to the Sansa Media Converter, clicked on a photo, and clicked on convert. But whenever I try to convert a photo or video it fails. It says: "Failed Reason(s): Device cannot be initialized. Transferring media files to device failed." What's wrong? Why won't it transfer?? And also I'm having a problem uploading music to a group. I click on 'browse' to upload but when I click on the folder my songs are not there. But when I go to my my computer then my music folder, all of my songs are there. If the songs are in the music folder why aren't they there when I try to browse and upload them?? PLEASE HELP!

    When it's plugged into the computer, all the songs come up and I can play them, but when it's unplugged, everything is completely empty. The names of the artists don't even show up. It just says "No Songs."

Everyone - install quicktime to get the right codecs to fix the video conversion issue

everyone else:
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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Unable to upload photos to Sansa View


Download from the sansa support site > http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4431/related/1/kw/media%20converter/r_id/101834 the firmware updater for your player model. The Media Converter is free to use. You can access the converter down load from the updater program. Now also the Sansa player can hook up to a computer in two different modes. Through normal use it can switch modes on it's own, although rare it can happen. Now stuff added in one mode can not be seen in the other mode and you can not delete the files. So you have MSC mode which means Mass storage class and is the best mode to use. Then MTP mode means Media transfer protocol, you have to use this mode if you use Napster and such to download MP3's with protected content (DRM) you have to set the player to one mode or the other, to see the files and delete the files you want to delete or to find the missing room. MSC makes your player look like a thumb drive, and is easy to use. Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player. With the player hooked up to the computer via the USB cable. Drag and drop your video into the "video" folder. Be sure the video is converted into the proper file format. Sansa players use the following video and music formats AVI, MPEG-42_bing.gif, MP3.

I uploaded pictures, songs and videos into 1GB micro SD card. But in Sansa e250 am able to see only songs in it. am unable to view pictures or vidoes stored in SD card. please help me.


The Sansa will only show photos and play videos from its internal memory, not the microSD card. You can put music on the card, but not photos or videos.

What do I have to do to get videos and photos uploaded to my mp3 player.?


In respect to the device, media refers to music, photos, and videos.

To transfer music, you will need to use Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, or similar.

To transfer photos, or videos, you will need to use the Sansa Media Converter, which came on the installation disk.

There are many "How to Videos" on the SanDisk page that may help you in your plight;
