question on how to use micro card

Will it automatically default when the unit is full? Or do you manually put some artists on the card and some in the device?

Re: question on how to use micro card

Ok, I just put a converted video on the micro card in the msc folder by dragging and dropping and I can't play it on the fuze. I know I'm doing something wrong, overlooking something obvious or something, I just need to know what it is.

This is a common question people have who have never used one of these devices with a memory card in it before.

 

You have to specify the memory location where you want to store the file, internal or memory card regardless of whether you stync your music over or drag & drop the files. It won't automatically switch over to the memory card once the internal memory space is full.

Wait a minute . . . wasn't that a line in a Johnny Cash song?

If you're using the Sansa Media Converter, you cannot simply drag & drop a video file to your player. The SMC converts and transfers all at the same time. One of the quirks of using this masterful piece of software engineering however, is that 99% of the time you must first use another conversion program to 'set it up' for SMC in order for the end result being a video that will actually play.

 

If you want to just drag & drop, use a different system other than SMC like the ones suggested in this post.

Oh, I think I get it now. 

 

 

The instuctions that came with it were pretty limited. It mentioned nothing about syncing, it said "just drag and drop to play music. Have fun!" and has increased my learning curve through misinformation. Man Very Happy

 

I read the instructions on the web and they weren't much better. So I have been asking any and all stupid questions here, because y'all don't know me in real life so it doesn't matter. Smiley Very Happy  People in real life will be impressed when I know stuff.

Maybe not. Weren't you asking about adding videos, not music?

Re: question on how to use micro card

I was wondering about videos this time. I wondered about music the last time, I attempted to drag and drop cd's at first.
