My Sansa View won't play all of my mp4 files - only some of them. I have reloaded them and they still won't work. I copied them via drag and drop.

Some files are made with different setting than other files. in the windows explorer, my computer go to the file and right click and choose properties,
compare the file properties of one that works and one that doesn;t and see if you can identify what the difference is. it is more than likely that the file that don;t work are compiled in a different format ie: speed, etc.
you may be able to convert the files with a converter to make them playable in your player.

Its not playing videos


First step --
Download a PDF copy of the Sansa View manual. Here's a link:

http://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=sansa+view+manual&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

There are two likely reasons for the video not to work;
1) The software that runs your Sansa View, known as 'firmware', is outdated;

2) Your video requires conversion before you download it.

1) Firmware update?
Download a copy of the Sansa Firmware Updater from here:

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4431

Start it on your computer, and follow the directions to update your Sansa View's firmware, if needed.

2) Download and install the Sansa Media Converter (SMC) from the same link above.
--Plug in your Sansa View to the computer, and run the SMC.
--Follow the directions to select your video. SMC processes one video at a time for upload into your Sansa player.

Another possibility - Try loading video from Windows Media Player 11;

From the manual, page 17--
"Your Sansa View player supports MPEG-4 Simple Profile up to VGA, H.264 Baseline Profile up to VGA, and WMV up to QVGA video formats.
That means you can simply drag and drop these files into the Video folder if you are using Windows Media Player 11."

Hopefully, that will help you get your videos in!

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 have a Sansa View i beleive and..............


Plug the view into the computer via usb and find where your music files from frostwire are downloaded to (most likely your Shared folder) and copy or drag the destined files to your Views Music folder and then unplug when your view is done transferring and all the songs you placed in the folder should show up.

I copy songs into my mp3 audio player


check the type of file format, it will say .wma, mp3, mp4, avi, some players can only play .wma, or .mp3 i pods use mp4, or something, if not an ipod than convert the music to .mp3 or .wma and re load into the mp3 player. are you using a sansa? in the picture above, if so then you can just click the mouse on the the song hold it and drag and drop the song into the player folder. here try this hook your player to your pc, open up my computer, select the drive that idetifies your player, double click, find a file that says audio or music open it that is the directory folder for the music to play from in your player, now keep that open, and open up the folder where you have stored the music in you pc and select whatever song you want, click and hold the mouse button on the song drag the song over to the player folder and let go of the mouse button within seconds it should appear, but like I said before make sure .wma or .mp3 is at the end of the song title, like this
All along the watchtower.wma or Sweet emotion.mp3 , it also helps to adjust the windows smaller to fit them both on the screen that way you can just drag and drop faster. I hope thiis helps.

Loading My ITunes library into new Sansa Clip


Hey guyi,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Sandisk), the Sansa Clip MP3 player can use two different methods to upload songs: a simple drag-and-drop interface, or syncronizing the player with Windows Media Player.

With the traditional drag-and-drop interface, you would need to connect the player to your computer and select the "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" option when it is presented. Once you have done this, you should be able to double-click on the "Sansa" player and then the "Music" folder. After this folder has been opened, you should be able to drag and drop (or copy/paste) the files into this folder to upload them to the player.

For more information or instructions on how to add files to your Sansa music library using Windows Media Player however, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or the following link on the manufacturer's website:

http://www.sandisk.com/assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/clip-usermanual.pdf

Unfortunately Windows Media Player does not currently appear to support the ability to directly import iPod playlists, but if you keep most of your music files in the same folder/directory on your computer, both programs should be able to share the same music library. Please keep in mind that this may only apply to music that you loaded onto the computer yourself and other unprotected file formats that both programs recongize (like .MP3 files), and may not necessarily apply to copy-protected songs downloaded from iTunes or other online music services.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

I'm trying to put a video/picture slideshow on my sansa e250 player and it won't work


what you need to do is make sure that the file is correctly in the folder like drag the file from the media player and have the folder already open then drag the file to the folder that is already open and when you have it on your PC make sure you change the file to what ever type of PC or programming (like media player or real player etc.) then you should use .mp3,wma(if you have windows media player), or mpeg-4/mp4. this should work. if not then post a problem up again and i'll find an answer for you
