Sandisk sansa M250 2gb please help

When I save a large file of about 800MB to the data folder everything works pefectly. The problem is when I Try to copy the same file (avi file) to the computer it says copying error "not enough storage is available to complete this operation". I have another 90gb on my pc and a lot of ram to do the work. I don't think it matters but there is still another gb of free space on my sansa. SO What's the problem?

Data folder is the wrong folder to copy to - plus, this player cannot read AVI files - use the Sansa Media Converter that came with the installation CD - doesn't anyone ever read their manuals?

Avi movie file will not transfer to hard drive, file size 1.5 gb, about 30 mins long, will playback fine on camera, have tried finepix and microsoft viewer software as well as just copying it across but...


You can try to go to my computer, find the file that the camera is on, and then leave that window open. Then go to my documents, leave that window open. Go back to my computer folder. Click and grab the video file and drag it over to the my videos file and let go of the mouse so it will drop in that folder. Otherwise try kodak easy share or quicktime

Converting Movies to Psp Format


Hey again, this is a real quick guide for anyone interested to get a movie onto there PSP without all the fluff I have seen elsewhere. I just watched Aftica the Serengeti on my PSP and here's is the lowdown.

Movie - approx 40 minutes - DVD.
Saved to hard drive - 2.6Gig - using DVD.
Decryptor (free program) try Google.
Transferred to AVI format - 377MB - using Super DVD Ripper (9 FREE trial uses) then you must buy.
Transferred to MP4 - 37MB - using the (basically free) Image Convertor 2.

Average movie breakdown - using above as a guide only.
So i'm guessing the average movie may be 4.5Gig for example saved to 800MB.
CONVERTED TO 70-80MB.

OK, use DVD Decryptor to save the movie to your hard drive eg. c:\africa (it will save it for you as described). When completed find the folder c:\africa on your computer and find the vob file in that folder - generally the largest one and right click and play it with your dvd program to see what part it is. If it's the correct movie part you now know that's the one you need.

Once you have located the vob file you want to transfer open DVD Ripper and go to wizard icon. There you will see an icon of VOB to AVI button. Click it and then it will ask to locate the file. Locate the file and click it. It will SCAN THE FILE (just wait till that finishes) a parameter box opens next and just click the arrow. It then askes to choose output file, click the file icon and locate the correct fob file. It then askes for file compression - choose microsoft windows media and then click ok then press the start button. It will now convert the vob into avi format.
(there are also other options ie:dvd to avi etc.) I have only used the vob to avi for this test.

After DVD ripper has transferred the file it will save it to the same folder as the original move was in eg: c:\africa\viteots. Open the file and you will now see an AVI icon containing the movie.

Make sure you PSP is on and in usb mode then Open Image Convertor 2 and press on movie / add to list. For this example I click on c:drive the found the folder Africa and opened it and there was my converted AVI file. Click the file press ok and it will be transferred to your PSP for viewing pleasure.

****Note**** I only converted one VOB file as that's all there was for this particular movie. If you have more then one vob file you may need to try the dvd to avi when you rip. This is just a guide i worked out to compress dvd into the smallest possible file so you can get value out of a 512 card.

Canon SD870 - Unable to copy AVI files to desktop


You need video editing software to copy .avi files to.
XP and Vista have that onboard.
Either direct the data to it or import the data from the individual program.
If that does not work, then you have a transfer problem between Camera and PC.
Try a card reader, that will prove it.

I have an Acer Aspire with two hard drives, can I move all of my music?


Its not two hardrives, its duo processor, and two cache chips

check the size of data and acer drives (right click and properties, check size)
If they are large should be able to store copy of music

go into the limewire download folder, should be in my computer -> c: -> program files -> Limewire -> shared folder - copy files (edit select all, edit copy or ctrl + left clikc to individually select)
then paste to new directory or folder (right click empty sapce of folder & left click paste

same for Itunes - locate where files are saving to then just copy paste from one location to another

should effect the programs from working, unless You delete files

Nero burn problem


Did you open up the avi for editing at any point? If so, make sure the avi (and any other files) aren't in use by any other programs. To make sure, you could simply copy all the files that you previously burned, and paste them in a new folder. Once they're all in the new folder, try burning them from there.

Cannot save music files


look 800mb free space is on the memory card ok

so if you have any files saved in phone memory transfer it to memory card

if you recieve any song from bluetooth the phone memory should be double than the file you are recieving so try the other solution.

Retrieving Back-up contacts/phone book


Try Desktop overwrite HH. I've lost everything on my HH a couple of times and had to set the conduits to 'Desktop overwrites HH' in the hotsync manager - Custom settings for the next hot sync. If what you have on desktop isn't what you want, you should copy your saved folder info back over whats in your palm folders (i.e) where you copied it from.. Before you complete this step. Then your old data will be copied to your HH. Note - I assume you "copied" , not "archived" the data.
