I cannot send videos to my sansa e280 ipod

First off get the arcsoft media converter 3, then drag and drop the videos you want to get on your mp3 player into the program, after it converts it loads them onto your mp3 player as long as it?s connected, this program will also allow you to download YouTube videos and put them on your mp3 player too

Sandisk sansa e280 will not down load songs

The Sansa player will only recognize certain file formats. The songs with a Red X are not eligible to be transferred to your player, because their DRM license does not allow transfer to certain (or any) mp3 players.

It is best to use songs that are in mp3 format only. They will give you fewer headaches.

iTunes songs will not work with this player.

Loading itunes library into my sansa view ... how?

You will have to use windows media player to load your songs onto your mp3 player. Open windows media player and see if the songs you want are there (they should be). If not, go to itunes and right click on a song and click on a option that should say open file location and go there. Then transfer all of your songs to your windows media player and transfer them to your mp3 player. Then it should work. If you need any more help, ask.

Hi, I would like to actually put music on my player, but nothing is working, and only certain songs will sinc through windows media player and drag and drop doesn't work... Please Help!

That player is only capable of playing songs that are in certain formats. iTunes/AAC format is out of the question. The songs that you are trying to load are probably DRM-encrypted WMA's that don't have transfer rights. Either buy the transfer rights, or better yet - only download songs that are in pure mp3 format - they will never give you grief.

I do not know how to put songs on mp3

This is not the place for something like that - it takes too long to explain all the nuances.
Read your user's manual.
The general process is:
Download a song from an online music service, or use the Windows Media Player Rip function to grab a song from a CD (make sure to change Rip Options -> format to Mp3 first)
Use Windows Media Player's Sync tab to transfer the songs from the computer to your mp3 player
Your manual has the step-by-step instructions

I dont no how to download

ben there are actually two modes of transfer the player is using. The first is by choosing MSC/Rhapsody on the player. You can drag and drop songs to the player provided they are not purchase from any online music stores like rhapsody, bestbuy music, or The other mode is MTP/Plays for Sure you can transfer songs to the player using windows media player 11 software or any mtp softwares. You can use this link for more instructions then choose support then softwares and user manual then choose your model then on the right window click on the link How to Videos.
