Videos will not Transfer onto Sansa e250 V2

When I use the Sansa Media Converter for music videos, the program appears to complete the conversion and the transfer to the device. But when I go to the player, the videos will be located in Photo>View Photo List>Video. When I click on the title of the video, I get the following message: "Please use Sansa Media Converter to convert this photo file," though I'm not sure that was the exact phrase, word for word. Well, that's redundant. I HAD used the converter, and it misplaced the files. Drag-and-drop doesn't work: the files will take up memory space but won't show up at all. Please help!

    I used the Sansa Media Converter and the files DID transfer to the e250r, I can see them in Computer\Sansa e250\Internal Memory\Video. BUT, they do not show up at all in BestBuy Digital Store. AND when accessed through the Sansa Player the files are in a submenu of the Photo Viewer and not recognized as video, thus the suggestion to convert to jpg. AND the Video folder is EMPTY (on the player, but not when accessed through the computer)

Try to Re-Install The SMC. If that doesnt Work then:
Formatt your player. Warning: IT will delete Everything. Then it should work. Then Reload songs. and/or Videos.
Or download the Latest Firmware to it. I think it is 1.02.23 For America. you can get it at www.sandisk.com or just google it. Hope that works.

I have a Sansa e250 but i lost the cd with the software on it. I forgot how to put music onto it, do i have to convert it first? Please help!


Hello,

All support for Sansa e200 players can be found here:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4487/session/L3NpZC92WmxVWmRZag%3D%3D/sno/0#e200
Music transfers can be done, connected with the provided USB cable in 2 modes:

MTP = Media Transfer Protocol, when using a software program or Windows Media Player (10 or higher). In WMP10 or 11 select Library or Sync to create playlists and synchronize the playlists with the player.

MSC = Mass Storage Class, when using Windows explorer, viewing the player as a removable disk. Perform "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" actions onto the external USB device (drive letter memory with 2GB capacity).

For pictures and video use software program Sansa Media Converter on the computer. After conversion in SMC transfer media onto the player.
Use next overview link for information about and how to get Sansa Media Converter:

I can put videos or pictures on it says it has worked but when i turn it back on it iisnt on there } plz Help


You must use the Sansa Media Converter to transfer videos. If the video is DRM-protected (many of Real's movies are), it may not actually convert. But if the video is DRM-free, then the Sansa Media Converter will perform the conversion and load the video onto the player. The Sansa Media Converter may or may not recognize certain file formats, so you may need to download an additional program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real video to AVI format first - then the Sansa Media Converter will recognize the file.

Problem getting video to expandable memory/sansa e250 to be recog


The Sansa will not play videos off the microSD card. It will play music, but not show videos or photos.

To get the videos onto the Sansa, use the Sansa Media Converter. If you don't have the SMC, you can download the Windows version from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3IPZO6Q0

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.
