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1) The software that runs your Sansa View, known as 'firmware', is outdated;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!

Downloaded books from the library won't play


I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Loading My ITunes library into new Sansa Clip


Hey guyi,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Sandisk), the Sansa Clip MP3 player can use two different methods to upload songs: a simple drag-and-drop interface, or syncronizing the player with Windows Media Player.

With the traditional drag-and-drop interface, you would need to connect the player to your computer and select the "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" option when it is presented. Once you have done this, you should be able to double-click on the "Sansa" player and then the "Music" folder. After this folder has been opened, you should be able to drag and drop (or copy/paste) the files into this folder to upload them to the player.

For more information or instructions on how to add files to your Sansa music library using Windows Media Player however, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or the following link on the manufacturer's website:

http://www.sandisk.com/assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/clip-usermanual.pdf

Unfortunately Windows Media Player does not currently appear to support the ability to directly import iPod playlists, but if you keep most of your music files in the same folder/directory on your computer, both programs should be able to share the same music library. Please keep in mind that this may only apply to music that you loaded onto the computer yourself and other unprotected file formats that both programs recongize (like .MP3 files), and may not necessarily apply to copy-protected songs downloaded from iTunes or other online music services.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
