OK First off I want to say I'm no expert. Everything I'm posting is what I learned by expermenting with the DVD Fab program and what I found has worked very well on my Sansa View. To start with you will need the DVD Fab program which you can get at www.dvdfab.com. I am using the latest version of DVD Fab Platinum.
First you need insert your DVD and open your DVD Fab program. Once you have done that you need to click where it says DVD to Mobile.
Now you need to click on the iPod / iPhone option. At the top where it says target you need to select a folder where you want your video to go or use what ever default folder that the program use. You will also see where it says Subpicture, this is the subtitles. If you don't want the subtitles in your video then uncheck this option. Now you need to click on Next.
Now you will see the DVD title shown. Click on Coversion Settings.
Now click on Advanced Resolution Settings.
Now under Resolution List make sure you select Supported by Device. On the Resolution setting make sure you set that to 320 x 240. Next select Crop Settings at the bottom. (Sorry I forgot to arrow that one)
If you select Automatic your video will fill the screen of your Sansa View. Some people may not like it that way because it streaches your video a little to make it fill the screen such as if you are using a widescreen format DVD. Some people may not like that setting because it streaches the video to fit the screen. It is all a matter of your personal like or dislike. If you want to to stay in the original format then check the Disabled option. Now click on OK .
Now I leave the Video Format set to Fixed Bitrate. Under the Split option if you want your video split into chapters then you can select it to do that. If I am just doing a regular movie then I set this option to No Split. If I am doing a DVD with several shows like I did one of the Three Stooges or some I had of music videos or episodes of Beavis and Butthead then I set this option to Split Chapters. This way I will have each episode as a seperate video. I set the framerate to 30 fps. I then set the Audio Format Bitrate to 128 kbps and the Channel to Stereo. Then I make sure my frame Resolution is set at 320 x 240. Now click OK.
Now this screen will appear and show that your DVD is now converting. After this process is done then I just take the finished video and drag and drop it in the video folder on the Sansa View. I hope this works well for everyone and I hope that I explained it well enough. If anyone has any questions or comments feel free to contact me.
