Hello! I have a chance e200 which is blocked,
HERE YOU HAVE A SOLUTION
I was having a problem with my player and after a little back and forth they showed me a back door to recover the system:
If your Player wants you to start in recovery mode
1. Activate the "HOLD" function 2. Press "Rec" and hold, while ath the same time pressing "ON/OFF" button and hold.
After some seconds of pressing there appears a screen reading: Recovery mode: Connect cable Now connect to your PC. A folder 16mbFORMAT will appear under 'My Computer'. Call SanDisk technical support for the most up to date firmware files. 1-866-SanDisk
Note: The firmware is available online via links in their forum at http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/
There are currently 2 version of the e200s, make sure you get the proper firmware for your version.
Copy the .MI4 file from the zip to the 16mbFORMAT folder.
The one thing I don't see mentioned in thread is to format the device completely, create a new directory called "sansa.fmt" in the 16mbFORMAT folder. Then, unplug the usb cable from your computer. Powering down will not reformat.
