Hi I am a very happy owner of a sansa FUZE 4gb. I just recently started using the video functionality and my approach to its use has been a bit different from how others use it I think… I have a large number of microSD cards that I swap out with different segments of my library stored on them. Since it takes hours sometimes to convert video to a format usable by my player, I have been looking for a way to pre-convert the videos I would like to watch in the future. That is to say, I want to convert a lot of videos and store them on my computer somewhere for easy loading/unloading onto the FUZE. The problem is, when my memory fills up in the fuze, the converter stops working (actually it does something worse- it continues working and then fails to save the converted output due to low memory errors on the target drive.)
what I want to do is specifiy a save location for the converted video output - like a microSD card in my drive or a usb flash drive or a directory on the local HDD. That way I can use my downtime to convert videos at my liesure, then transfer them to the fuze just before I leave my home for easy viewing.
Is there any way to accomplish this? Right now the only workaround I have is to fill up my fuze, copy all the videos onto a different drive, free up all the space on my fuze and then start again, The drawback of this method is that I can only convert 4gb of videos at a time - but I have a terabyte of content that I would eventually like to convert. Any ideas?
