Sansa Media Converter:
- Does not allow you to convert while the player is not connected. This requires hardware to be required during the potentially many hours it requires to convert your videos.
-Does not allow you to sync converted files. Sit and watch as your already converted files… re… convert? What the ? Didn’t they check the files to see if they were already the right specs? I just spent the afternoon watching my files “convert” for the transfer to fail. Now I can’t use those files that are already converted? We have to start over? Why? Oh, bad programmers, that’s why.
-Doesn’t work. Maybe if I restart my **bleep** computer twice and plug the sansa in two minutes later and then open sansa media connector… maybe this time it’ll see the sansa and work… nope, convert button still gray.
Freezes. I’ll just add a few files to my sansa. Hang on, wait, what happened? We’re stuck at 60% and the cancel button isn’t working… what’s going on?? Programmers take note: instead of adding a “Cancel” button, but a Label there instead that says “To cancel, press Alt-Ctrl-Del to exit this program.” Because at least then you’re being honest.
Think I missed anything? I’m never going back with sandisk again. It’s funny- what a waste of a company. You’d think they’d at least try to keep their users happy. What a waste.
I recommend the guys running this company take a read from a few books by Seth Godin. Yeah, he’ll tell you why he likes the IPOD. I wish I could’ve enjoyed the alternative, but I guess I’ll be going the ipod route too. (Look how much money I’m spending with another company that could’ve been yours, but you pissed us off so much! )
