I imported pictures and it doesn't show on my sansa it says unsupported media format

The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player as well as the memory card in your Sansa player.

NOTE: Only the Sansa e200v2, Fuze, and View allow viewing of video files from the memory card.

STEP 1 - Download and install Sansa Media Converter
The Sansa Media Converter application is available via the Sansa Firmware Updater.

STEP 2 - Convert and transfer your video or image files
NOTE: To see a list of supported image/video file formats, see Sansa Media Converter does not convert a file
1. Run the Sansa Media Converter.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
3. If a Portable Device windows appears, select Sansa Media Converter using Sansa Media Converter.

4. The Sansa player should appear on the left pane of the Sansa Media Converter console.
5. Click Add Media to add video or photo files to be converted and transferred.
(In the sample below we imported an image and a video file)
6. The converted files are stored in My Album by default. To place them in a different folder, select My Album then type in a new name.

7. Depending on what Sansa player that's plugged in or if a microSD is present in the Sansa player, click on the Sansa player or the microSD card on the left pane to select where to transfer the converted files. (in the sample below, we selected the microSD card)
8. Click Convert to covert the files.
9. Once the files are converted it's automatically transferred to the device or microSD.
10. Click OK when finished.

Trying to import pictures from my library.When trying to open pix, get message-Unsupported Media Format- I have Sansa Fuze player.

I have the same player. I usually go to my computer, find the drive with the sansa, double-click to open the files.
Leave this window open,
Now go to your pictures, and open that file. Go to first top picture, right-click, this picture, then scroll to bottom of picture list, on last picture, press and hold shift key then left-click on the picture. Now all pictures should be high-lighted.
Now just drag the pictures over to the sansa pic file and drop them in there. THey should automatically add themselves to your sansa.
It should be JIF,BMP, and the other most common pic files.

Drag and drop any song or picture from your pc directly into sansa folder under my computer.

Mp3 vs mp4

Hi Richards147,

Have you tried importing the file from your PC to the Sansa m250 directly rather than from iTunes?

You can also try converting your mp4 files from iTunes into mp3.
You will need to re-import your original files into mp3 format. You will need to change also your import settings to Mp3 encoder on iTunes. You can find this by choosing from the Menu bar of iTunes "Edit--->Preferences--->General---->Import Settings--->Import using : Mp3 encoder.

Sandisk Sansa e250r - cannot delete mp3 files

I have had this problem for some time now and finally got through to tech support for Sansa and now have the solution:Worked for both 230 and 240.
Take out the battery in the Sansa player; Put on lock on back side of Sansa player; Connect Sansa to the computer, Once computer recognizes device cancel out of that media program; Go to my computer on desk top; Right click on recognized Sansa device; Click format; Click ok to delete files.

Sansa 250 - Having problems downloading music?

You could try opening the folder(s) with your saved music and highlight all the ones you want to transfer to your mp3 player and then right click on one of the highlighted files, left click on Copy, then go to My Computer > Sansa e250 mp3 player should be listed in there, double click on it, then right click in a open white area and left click Paste. It should copy the music right to your player. You could also try using Rhapsody and import your music into it. I use Rhapsody for transferring music to my e250 Sansa mp3 player.
