A somewhat different problem with video files

I have a Sansa 250R and the latest version of SMC, installed on both an XP and a Vista system.

I have some xvid .avi files I want to put on the player. I can see them in SMC, preview them, etc. but when I try to convert one of them it says  “Finished 0, Unfinished 1” and “Failed Reason(s)” is blank. If I click More I get a pane titled “Failed File(s)”, which is blank.

I’d really like something more to go on!

Weird!

You could try installing a different versiono of the converter- there are two main “engines” and the install you got is just plain broken… 

Also, I’ve noticed it doesn’t like certain types of files- some of my AVIs transfer fine but certain framerates cause real problems…
