Re: sansa fuze media converter problem

What Operating System are you using?  You need at least Windows XP, and you really should have Windows Media Player 11 installed, not 9.  Your player is only being recognized in MSC mode at this time, and the Media Converter will not see it in MSC mode (at least on my computer it does not).

Re: sansa fuze media converter problem

What version is the SMC?  Be sure to have .236. 

 

Sansa Support Page:  http://www.sandisk.com/sansa/#/support-0/   

 

Select the Fuze from the drop down menu.

 

 

The Fuze does work in MSC mode so that is not the problem but you should have WMP 11.

What type of movie file are you trying to convert?

Take a number. I don't think anyone is able to use SMC without problems. If you don't want to deal with it, Download WinAvi and use that to convert your videos. Then Drag + Drop them to the videos folder on your player. They have to be on the player itself, most flash cards won't allow video playback with the fuze.

 

The ideal settings for WinAvi are:

1. files should be in Xvid format. 

2. use the 'to Avi' format.

3. set the height/width/framerate to 224x176 @ 20 fps.

4. profit.

I Use SMC without a problem. That does not mean I like it. I lovehow sometimes the output file is bigger than the origional. My suggestion is WinAvi (If you want to pay) and then Drag and Drop, or Any-Video-Converter (Free) to convert to files that the fuze likes and then SMC to add it.

Re: sansa fuze media converter problem

Everything you really need to know is already posted.  Just google AnyVideoConverter to download it or go to CNET to get the download.  AnyVideoConverter is a good free program, I find it easy to use and it also downloads YouTube videos too.  Just convert to an .avi and then run it through Sansa Media Converter to your fuze.  Done.  Enjoy.
