Thanks for MediaInfo and the diff from V-Mate’s audio settings.
Unfortunately, it’s not yet known how to make those changes, or whether it’s possible. The V-Mate supports changing recording settings via a few GUI choices or entering a 12-character alpha Recording Format Code. There’s a Sandisk chart of these codes to use for various playback devices, mostly cellphones, but also two Sandisk players, the View and Connect (for which it says “… select “Sansa View” in “Portable Audio / Video Players” or use Recording Format Code” ). The V-Mate forum has begun to deconstruct the codes, but so far have not found a code for anything audio, like format or kbps or sampling rate.
A Sandisk brand micro SD card also had the clicking noise (there is some problem on using a Kingston brand micro SD card in the Fuze, so I was hopeful and bought one last night).
I could always run the V-Mate-produced video files through Sansa Media Converter, but that takes all the ease out of it (pop out, pop in card).
Audacity wouldn’t accept the video file (I was hoping it was smart enough to pull out the audio only). I wanted to take a look at the noise.
The noise doesn’t occur during periods of silence. So I’m thinking the Connect might be struggling to decode this audio while also displaying video, and grunts out some electrical noise as it takes a breath. I think you’ve pointed me in the right direction: if possible, change some audio setting to something the Connect can handle more easily. Thanks.
