I need help with my Sansa e280 because it won't convert videos. I already installed the media converter but whenever it tries to convert it, it always says unfinished because of "unsupported filename." Even if it shows up on my computer, whenever i go to VIDEO, it says empty.Photos I have no problem with, just video.All of my videos are from limewire. Please help!!!

My sansa media converter did not detect my sansa e280

Set the device to MSC mode (default is Auto) in the USB properties on the Sansa device. This worked for me with a Sansa Fuze on Windows XP running Sansa Media Converter 1.0. Hope this helps.
