It sure can be a frustrating process downloading movies. Very inconsistent. I’m having issues with my desktop DVD, so all conversions are on my laptop, which MAY explain some of my issues.
About 25% of the public domain movies won’t do the “add media” function because it doesn’t have the right codec, about 10% will actually go through the “convert” process, then NOT BE THERE! And out of 6 or 7 movies I tried to download from my DVD with the pay version of E.M. Dvd converter, only two movies actually ended up on my sansa.
I’ve ended up with 24 pub. dom. movies, JFK, and the Matrix Reloaded, on 5 2g cards. I think they are quite watchable, altho’ all the pd movies have the ridiculous problem with the audio delay (I hope this will be fixed with this weeks firmware update!). The dvd copies don’t have the audio delay.
All in a a nightmare. I think the fact that the various conversions take so much time, is what makes it so frustrating when the process doesn’t “take”.
