Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
I've tried to reformat this using various software, including e200tool, because it's to the point where the only thing it will do is turn on with the blue ring lighted, no screen at all. It does show up as an unknown USB device in Windows XP. Is there any software out there that will force it to reformat? In etool200 it gets to the point where it's to write the software to the device but stops, it can't seem to write to the device. Thanks!
Not sure what e200 tool you are referring to.
But this is the one provided by SanDisk;
Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.
You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.
- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.
Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.
Best of Luck.
