I think I’ve read all I can here and elsewhere about this issue. Apparently it’s not easy to do.
I have a View 280v2 with the newest firmware. I just downloaded the newest updater and SMC software this morning. After getting the “please install the codec…” error I downloaded the program suggested all over these forums ‘video4fuze’ and haven’t had a single success in converting either movie.
I’m trying to convert District 9 and Star Trek digital copy files for my View.
SMC refuses to recognize the videos as supported even though they play on WMP11. Video4fuze errors out everytime with an error I do not understand. As a test I did convert a picture using the program so it does work, just not with those movies. Is this caused by the DRM? I keep finding programs that claim they will convert the files but I won’t pay for any of them, I shouldn’t have to. I already spent $45 on the BluRay’s, why should I or anyone else spend another penny on conversion software?
Overall I love my View and Sansa products, I’ve purchased 3 of them as gifts over the past 3 years. This is my first attempt to actually put a full movie on my player. I’ve put short clips on before with no problems.
