Its not playing videos


First step --
Download a PDF copy of the Sansa View manual. Here's a link:

http://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=sansa+view+manual&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

There are two likely reasons for the video not to work;
1) The software that runs your Sansa View, known as 'firmware', is outdated;

2) Your video requires conversion before you download it.

1) Firmware update?
Download a copy of the Sansa Firmware Updater from here:

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4431

Start it on your computer, and follow the directions to update your Sansa View's firmware, if needed.

2) Download and install the Sansa Media Converter (SMC) from the same link above.
--Plug in your Sansa View to the computer, and run the SMC.
--Follow the directions to select your video. SMC processes one video at a time for upload into your Sansa player.

Another possibility - Try loading video from Windows Media Player 11;

From the manual, page 17--
"Your Sansa View player supports MPEG-4 Simple Profile up to VGA, H.264 Baseline Profile up to VGA, and WMV up to QVGA video formats.
That means you can simply drag and drop these files into the Video folder if you are using Windows Media Player 11."

Hopefully, that will help you get your videos in!

How can I remove SlotRadio advertisement from my Sandisk Sansa Clip + 8Gb. I can't find any SlotRadio files in both UMS and MTP modes.


You will need to manually reinstall the firmware from the Sansa Website


Current version is 01.02.15 (at this date 1/30/11)

On your clip the version number may be followed with an "a"


Your clip should be at least 50% charged or greater before following these steps


DO NOT use the Sansa Updater


1. Download the current firmware for your Clip+ from the Sansa Website

2. Save the zipped firmware (clipplus01.02.15.zip) to a folder you can easily locate (Downloads)


3. Create a new folder naming it what you wish.. (Sansa Firmware)


4. Open the downloaded zipped file(clipplus01.02.15.zip) using something like Winrar

5. Delete the file clpp_data.dat (This is the slot radio ad)

6. Extract/unzip the remaining file clppa.bin to the new folder (Sansa Firmware)


7. Plug in your Sansa Clip


8. Drag and drop (copy) the clppa.bin file into the internal memory or root of the clip


9. Unplug the clip from the USB port on your PC


10. The firmware will update and the media will refresh.. and you will no longer have the Slot radio Ad on your clip


Good luck


I have three clips.. 2 of the 2 gb.. 1 of the 4 gb and now a plus 8 gb.. and yes..I too found the banner ad annoying as all get out.

Sansa View freezes when music is accessed (I've tried everything)


there mite be a corupted music file that is stopping your system from running properly like a coppy protected file or a virus encrypted file. check all your music that you load to be sure its not copy protected. jsut hover over the music file and wait for the info page to pop up on it it should say if its protected or not if it dosnt say anything then its not protected. as for finding the virus encrypted files thats a little harder just load one song at a time and see if it plays on your mp3

I have a 8gb sansa view and up until 2 days ago it would come on


Recovery for the Sansa View is described on the Sandisk site in 3 steps:

1. Reset the device:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/188
The reset is meant for switching the player off completely, before going to the recovery mode.
2. Force recovery mode:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/197
Recovery mode is meant for recognizing the player on the computer and making backups of files from player to the computer, before clearing the device while updating it to the latest firmware.
3. Update to the latest firmware:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/304
Updating the firmware is meant for completely erasing the players' drive and putting new software on it back again.

As you follow the instructions of the last step you'll require the "Sansa Firmware Updater".
It can be downloaded with the next link:

I have a Sansa View i beleive and..............


Plug the view into the computer via usb and find where your music files from frostwire are downloaded to (most likely your Shared folder) and copy or drag the destined files to your Views Music folder and then unplug when your view is done transferring and all the songs you placed in the folder should show up.

My Sansa View won't play all of my mp4 files - only some of them. I have reloaded them and they still won't work. I copied them via drag and drop.


some files are made with different setting than other files. in the windows explorer, my computer go to the file and right click and choose properties,
compare the file properties of one that works and one that doesn;t and see if you can identify what the difference is. it is more than likely that the file that don;t work are compiled in a different format ie: speed, etc.
you may be able to convert the files with a converter to make them playable in your player.

How do you place a podcast (MP3) into the podcast folder on the Sansa View?


Make sure you're Sansa is in MSC mode (go to settings/options, then "system settings", then "USB Mode", then MSC -- this option is available if you've updated your firmware to v01.03.02a). Connect your Sansa via USB cable and then open "My Computer", double-click on the Sansa View icon and create a new folder called "PODCAST". Place Podcasts in this folder, then close the window and "safely" remove your Sansa from the USB port. After the Sansa refreshes itself, go to "MUSIC" then "PODCASTS" and you should see your file(s)!

Nr 1:
Let us update your player's firmware:

Step 1 – Connect the player in Recovery Mode.

1. Turn off the player.
2. Slide down the Hold switch along the left side of the player down so the orange is showing.
3. Press and hold the HOME button and connect the device to the computer.
4. A message will appear on the device display screen confirming the connection and a 16MB partition will be viewable in My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista).
5. Release the HOME button.

Download and update the firmware.

1. Download the firmware file:

Click Here for the Sansa View Firmware update file

2. Extract the zip file.
3. Copy the extracted firmware files (*.dat, *.rom, *.mi4, and *.fnt) to the 16MB-FORMAT drive.
4. Disconnect the player. This will now start the firmware update.
5. Slide the Hold switch to the unlock position.
6. Turn on the player.
Nr 2:
It appears that this is caused by file corruption in your player's memory. Usually, formatting your mp3 player resolves this FM issue in your player.

Formatting your Sansa View Mp3 player in Disk Management:

WARNING - FORMATTING YOUR MP3 PLAYER WILL ERASE ALL MEDIA FILES IN YOUR PLAYER, PLEASE BACK UP IF POSSIBLE.

1. Make sure the Sansa View is turned on.
2. Engage the hold switch, located on the left-hand side of the player.
3. Press and hold the LEFT BUTTON ( << )
4. Connect to the computer while pressing and holding the LEFT BUTTON ( << ). Do not let go of the left button until the player is detected as Removable Disk.
5. The Sansa View should now be connected in MSC mode and should appear as a "Removable Disk" or "Sansa View".
6. From the desktop, right click My Computer, then select Manage. If you don't see My Computer on the desktop, click on Start and right click My Computer from there, then select manage.
7. On the Computer Management window, click Disk Management from the left pane.
8. On the right side, locate your sansa device on the list (it might be recognized as removable disc), right click on the sansa device, then select Format.
9. On the Format Window, select FAT32 under File System and make sure that the Quick Format option is not checked.
(You might get a warning window about your files being deleted when you format the device, if that is not an issue for you, click ok.)
10. Click OK to start formatting the device. This should start the format process.
11. Once the formatting is done, unplug the device from the computer. Let the device refresh.
12. We can verify that formatting is successful if it shows no files on the player.
