I care about the background. I want to be able to change my Sansa Fuze as a wallpaper background.

Re: Sansa Media Converter Build 4.256: Download Details and Release Notes

Is there anyway to get rid of that slotRadio icon? I really don't wanna use it and it's just bugging me while it's there. I tried formatting it and it didn't go away. And I have looked around for an answer and I could not find anything. If someone could give me a hand on this that would be amazing.

Are you talking about the SlotRadio icon on your player's screen? This is the Sansa Media Converter board.

 

Depending on what player you have, you may be able to roll-back to a previous firmware version (before it was added), but otherwise there's no way to simply turn it off.

 

I wouldn't let it bug me; there are icons on the main menu that I don't use either, like Photos or Recordings. But they're not doing any harm being there; I just scroll past them.

This has been suggested many times before and may (or may not) be added at some time in a future firmware update.

 

But it's a little off-topic for this, the Sansa Media Converter board, don't you think? Smiley Wink

Re: Sansa Media Converter Build 4.256: Download Details and Release Notes

Hello,

I am urgently looking for a direct download link for Sandisk Media Converter, the Firmware Updater DOES NOT WORK.

 

The Firmware Updater recognizes my Sansa Fuze and the Firmware Version, then he writes

 

"looking for updates, please wait"

 

for 15 min, so I closed it.

 

(Happily I found a direct link to the firmware V1.02.28F to update it )

 

I hope, you can help me else I have to return the player.

In most cases, it's your firewall protecting you by blocking access to the server containing the Updater. Turn your firewall off, download the Updater & then turn your firewall back on.

Thank you for your fast answer, but I don't have a problem to download the Updater.

I have already installed the Updater, and the Updater does not work.

 

I am tired of struggeling with this silly  programm, I need the SMC, so I need a direct download link (like the one for the firmware).

 

I tried the Updater on my notebook (last install ca. 2 years) and on my freshly installed desktop. Both XP SP3 and all updates, both MS XP integrated firewall, I tried it with Opera and the Internet Explorer, but this should not become a debugging session for the Updater.

 

Yours mbans

OK, I wasn't quite specific in my response. What I meant to say is that your firewall may be preventing your Updater from connecting with the server, thus preventing the download of the SMC and resulting in the 'hang-time' where the Updater appears not to be working.

 

It may be working it's little heart out, but if it's hittiing a brick wall it can't do what it's designed to. Oh yeah, make sure your player is connected when running the Updater, too. If not, it won't download anything either.

 

One more thing, I know it's supposed to work in both modes, but I've always had the best success with the player is MSC mode, not MTP while connected and running the Updater. That is, years ago when I actually used the Updater. Smiley Happy

Dear Tapeworm,

as I wrote, I use the Microsoft Firewall, the Updater should deal with it. If it does not, it should yield a clear error message.

 

But now I completely turned of the Firewall, I connected my Fuze (as always in MSC-Mode), the Updater reads the modell and Version 1.02.28F and writes in german:

"Sansa Updater sucht nach aktuellen Updates      Bitte Warten...".

 

Translated to english it is:

"Sansa Updater is looking for Updates                 Please Wait..."

 

I waited for another 20 min, nothing.

I'm a surprised. You are a Sansa Guru, but you don't even use the sansa software? Thats exactly what I want to do, please tell me how!

 

Yours mbans
