sansa media converter issues

i have a sansa e200 mp3 player. i’m trying to convert an WMV video file. when i put it into the converter the “converting file” bar gets to 100% and then the “All files” bar just stops at 50%. I have no idea what to do.

When using the Sansa Media Converter, it is almost always necessary to convert the video file with another converter program first. It’s just the way it is.

If you have a v1 player, Any Video Converter has been recommended, although the free version may limit the length of video to be converted. Personally, I use WinFF with good results, but with longer videos you may (or may not) find the audio gets out of sync with the video. So I then use Avidemux to line things up. Once this is done, then I run it through SMC for final conversion and transfer to my player. Yes, it’s a multi-stage process, but it works.

If you have a v2 model, you might be able to use Video4Fuze and eliminate the need for SMC and multiple conversions altogether.
