Re: Fuze+ General Information

Still need a media converter?  ah come on, that's lame. Smiley Mad   Takes way too much time. that's the one envy I had about my coworkers ipod.  She could convert a movie and put it on her ipod immediately.  I had to conver the movie and then convert again to put on my Fuze.

What part of "The SMC is NOT required to convert videos for the Fuze+. Any video converter of your choice can be used. Here are the video file requirements for Fuze+" says drag & drop?

Re: Fuze+ General Information

I hope the firmware is better than the firmware used for the Sansa View. Looking forward to the larger screen

Re: Fuze+ General Information

I obviously meant use whatever converter you want, then drap and drop. Unless you know a way to install files onto the player through osmosis., ? If you do, please let me know, cause that would really be awesome.

Re: Fuze+ General Information

I was confused because it said

 

Video formats: MPEG-4***, H.264, WMV and Flip Video™***

 

then

 

*** Requires Sansa Media Converter via Sansa Updater. See kb.sandisk.com

 

 

If we use a different converter (for exmaple, I've bought one) that converts it, then is it not required? 

Or will the SMC do the same job as any other video converter now? 

Or do we need to use the SMC for the MPEG-4 and Flip Video only? 

very confused here... please help...

 

Although this Fuze+ looks really great.

Re: Fuze+ General Information

SMC is really only recommended not required. The reason it says that in the marketing material is a legal thing because the Fuze+ does not support most video in it's native resolution. Conversion is required but SMC is not actually required. You can use any converter you choose as long as you convert the file to the specs required.
