SOURCE: sansa e200 load main image failed

I have also encountered the same problem. "Load main image failed Switch to Recovery Mode" What I did was: 1. Download and install the Firmware Updater Software from SanDisk "http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe" 2. Bring up the Sansa into recovery mode by: -Switch the Hold Switch to Locked Position -Hold (and continue to hold) the Record button -Press the menu button (may a need an extra hand) while plugging in the USB Cable to the computer 3. After the Sansa is in the Recovery Mode saying: "... Enter 2.0 MSD" (Means that it is currently in MSD) 4. Right Click on the Sansa Firmware Updater icon in the System Tray (near the clock) and select "Update Now" 5. Once the dialogue box appears, DO NOT SELECT AMERICA, but chose Japan and Update. 6. Follow it's procedures till the end. -The screen will tell you to unplug then press finish. BUT WAIT! -I press the finish button first, then right click on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on the System Tray and properly stopped the USB device. -After stopping (and unplugging), the Sansa's screen continues with the rebooting process and finishes the update. -It will automatically restart, but the Hold Switch is still on Lock. I must then turn off the Hold Switch and press Menu to turn on the Sansa. -So far, it seems to work. In summary, I think the "America" download site doesn't have the latest firmware to fix this problem, but the Japan site does. Next, the improper unplugging of the device may prevent the update process to complete. I've seen from other forums that people who had prematurely (improperly) stopped the updating process.

To reset the player hold in the power button for at least 20 seconds, when you release the button the player should restart on it's own. If it doesn't then try again holding the power button for a little longer. If for some reason the player becomes unstable and resetting doesn?t resolve the issue, then try the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool which will clean up your player and restore it to factory settings. You can download this tool & get instructions on it's use on the following link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1532 Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

SOURCE: SanDisk Sansa e200 datadase fail

switch to recovery mode! here:

copy and paste the following link into your web browser address bar, and then click Go or hit your Enter key. When prompted, choose the option to Save the file to your Desktop.


http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe


Once you have downloaded the file, please follow these instructions.

1) Double click on My Computer so that you can see it on your screen.

2) Turn the player off.

3) On the top of the player is a Hold switch, move it to the right (toward the headphone jack) so you see Orange.

4) On the left hand side of the player is a Record button, press and hold it while connecting the player to the computer. Continue holding the Record button until you see a new icon under My Computer called 16MB FORMAT. Once you see that icon you may release the Record button.

5) Double click the file you downloaded earlier and run it. Follow all of the on-screen instructions, and when you get to the prompt where it asks you whether you would like to Format it, choose Yes. Once it is done, click Finish.

6) Disconnect the player and look at the screen. Several things will be displayed, and when you see Key Lock, System Shutdown, move the Hold switch on the top back to the left.

7) Turn the player on and watch the screen. If you see a Refresh Database Fail error, you will need to follow steps 1-7 again until you do not get the error. If it does not work the first time, it could take up to 3 times for it to work.

Sansa e200 wont recognize 8GB microSD


The Sansa e200 series machines work with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use microSD cards, which are 2GB and smaller.

Later model Sansa such as the Fuze will work with microSDHC cards, but not the e200. Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

SANSA E200 NOT SHOWING THE MENU SCREEN


Try to format the SANSA E200.


You can do this by simply holding down the Power/Menu button for about 15 seconds. After the reset, any changes you have made to the e200 during its last use will be lost.

PLEASE RESET USING THE RESET PIN PRESENT IN THE SIDE.
AND FORMAT THE PLAYER . if this dosen't work your player is faulty

Refresh database


Sansa e200 provides a RESET function for unresponsive units. Press and hold the MENU button for 15 seconds, and this should work to regain normal funtionality. Please note: settings and adjustments from the last operation WILL BE LOST. The files however should remain.
