The Sansa will not play videos off the microSD card. It will play music, but not show videos or photos.

To get the videos onto the Sansa, use the Sansa Media Converter. If you don't have the SMC, you can download the Windows version from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3IPZO6Q0

Ive been trying to add photos to my SanDisk Sansa


u may check it carefully and follow this guide:
The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player as well as the memory card in your Sansa player.

NOTE: Only the Sansa e200v2, Fuze, and View allow viewing of video files from the memory card.

STEP 1 - Download and install Sansa Media Converter
The Sansa Media Converter application is available via the Sansa Firmware Updater.


STEP 2 - Convert and transfer your video or image files

NOTE: To see a list of supported image/video file formats, see Sansa Media Converter does not convert a file

1. Run the Sansa Media Converter.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
3. If a Portable Device windows appears, select Sansa Media Converter using Sansa Media Converter.

7. Depending on what Sansa player that's plugged in or if a microSD is present in the Sansa player, click on the Sansa player or the microSD card on the left pane to select where to transfer the converted files. (in the sample below, we selected the microSD card)

8. Click Convert to covert the files.

I can put videos or pictures on it says it has worked but when i turn it back on it iisnt on there } plz Help


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.

Sansa 250, and media converter won't recognize new mini sd card


The Sansa will only play videos stored in its internal memory, not on a microSD card. You can put music on the card, but not videos or photos.

Trouble with expanded memory


The Sansa Express was only designed to hold up to a 2 GB Micro SD card because that is as much expandable memory it was meant to read. Anything bigger as in your case will cause the player to go slower than normal as it tries to read the card and after a while, it will most likely freeze. If you try it with a 2 GB Micro SD card, it should work.

Can't load songs


ive had this same problemo. you cant use the media converter to drag and drop songs. you have to download your songs or rip them onto windows media player. you plug in the sansa and then when its recognized there will be an area on the right hand side where you drag the songs and they appear on sansa.
