Help with conversion of Videos

So yesterday i purchased a sansa Fuze. I love that the screen is bigger than my old e250r (loved it too before i crushed the screen) and today i was trying to convert some videos. i loaded the preloaded video in to media info with these results:

Even though the only difference is the  sampling rate in the audio, i still cant get it to read.

dont tell me about SMC, ive tried it, i have xp sp2 w/ WMP11, the .263? update of SMC , and the new fuze firmware. whenever i try to convert a video it stopps before it hits one percent. n-e-help?  thanx

the only way to transfer videos to the fuze is by using the sansa media converter.  i think its inserting some metadata to the videos that’s why other converter won’t work.

Sometimes it helps to filter the file through another conversion utility, such as AnyVideoConverter first, and then run the new file through SMC.  The extra conversion does reduce overall quality, but even a snowy screen is better than no screen at all, and besides that, with such a small display any reduction in quality will not be so noticeable.

If the screen is snowy, y’all need to move them tennas a bit, or put some tin foil or coat hangers on 'em.

Git one of the kids to move em for ya.

Sorry, couldn’t help it.  Anyone remember the days when Dad’s remote control was asking the kids to rotate the aerials, or the fine tuning, and perhaps the vertical hold knob?  Ah, I can still smell the bakelite and dusty vacuum tubes.  Good times.
