I am trying to load a dvd onto my sansa player. I put the dvd into the tray and then go through the sansa software and locate the dvd. I get the media and then click convert and I always get an error and I don't know why. I am a newbee with this kind of stuff but I didn't think it was going to be this much trouble. After reading the documentation it seemed like a no brainer, something pretty simple which is what I am looking for. Please help me with this, I would really appreciate it.
btw, you can only view movie files from the built-in memory, not from your add-on memory.
if it's already converted for your sansa, then just use your usb cable to transfer it to your built-in memory and you should be good to go...**You can go to the sandisk site listed below to watch video on how to put video on your device

As far as I know, sansa mp3 player supports playing video in the following formats: AVI、WMV、MOV、MP4、MKV、OGM、DV. Therefore, you can convert your movies into any video format above. There are a lot of such kind of converters, such as Wondershare Video Converter.
Hope that helps.
with the sansa e260 a disk comes with it and you need to install the formater that is in the disk...put the disk in your computer and then the compter will start to load a page that has sever options then click the button that says install the sansa media converter...once its done converting(converting may take a while) the video should be on you mp3 player if not the video has been dumped (or placed) somewhere...you will want to go to file (this is in the sansa media converter) and then click output folder...then follow where the out put folder goes....then once you have found the video left click it once then right click it then click cut...then open up my computer go to the mp3 player then go to the video folder in the mp3 player then right click somewhere in the window and click paste then it will transfer...after the transfer unhook you sansa from you computer and check the video...(it will be sideways just to let you know.....its supposed to be that way so you get the biggest picture out of that screen)
try formatting it. to do that, simply scroll down to settings, and in
settings hit format. you'll lose everything that was on it tho, if that
don't work then try updating. if your unsure how to update go here. and install the program.
This might sound like I'm implying you're stupid, but I'm really not. Have you guys tried putting things on your Sansas using the Sansa Media Converter? Can be downloaded from sandisk.com. I've never tried adding videos to my Sansas (yet) but when I just put the photos on the same way I add music, they wouldn't open. Using Sansa Media Converter worked like a charm. Might be worth a try with videos, as well. :-) Good luck!
