Video: AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DVD(*.VOB), WMV, and a certain MOV that I have not identified (it threw a fit when I tried).

Photo: JPEG, TIFF, GIF, PNG, BMP all convert nicely.

To see this list again, please click the link on the top bar of the Sansa Media Converter main screen.

    You need Quicktime 6.5 (or later) and Windows Media Player 10 (or later).



    If that doesn't solve your problem, try re-installing the program. Remeber, it IS from 2006.

What type of video files does it play?


Most of the usual types. But you have to use the Sansa Media Converter to convert them (and photos) to a format the Sansa can handle.

Video converter for e250


You can get the Sansa Media Converter from Sandisk's website.

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.
