how do i even save the video file onto my pc? like, if i wanted a music video, how do i save it so i can open it up and convert it?
Well now, that is huge can of worms to open. The sources for videos are too numerous to list but Itunes is a good safe start, and get some video podcasts to start with, as they are free and made for Ipods, so they transfer to our Fuzes, usually troublefree. Start by creating a Storage file on your computer. You then install Itunes and instruct Itunes to save all downloads to the storage file. It will make your life far simpler to do that, than to let Itunes save whereever it wants as you will have trouble figuring out where things went later.
Anyway once you have some video downloaded, you close all programs that are running and then start SMC, its pretty basic, but plug in your fuze, and click on ‘import’ you will direct it to look in your storage file where it will see the saved videos, you higlight one or more and click open, SMC will then load the vids into itself. Once you have all the video in SMC you want to transfer, then click on ‘convert’ and sit back and wait. It will be slow and take some time so be ready to leave the computer alone for the most part. I havent had trouble web surfing while it converts, but others have. After everything transfers, and the Fuze reboots play each vid just for a sec or two to make sure they work, SMC is a little unreliable and none of us knows why, but if there are any that have errors, delete them and reload them with the SMC process, it may take a few times before they work properly.
