I havent encountered that specific problem, nor have i seen an option for recovery mode. My best suggestion is to go to the source and download again. http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_e200/faqs look to the right hand side for download options.

My e260 is saying "load main image failed switch to recovery mode" what that means


Load main image failed, this is a firmware error, (this does not have software like a computer)

Recovery mode, the player tried to recover from the error.

The player has firmware updates that where put out by the MFG because of problems.

You have to read the manual, carefully and follow it to the T.
because you need to update the firmware on the player.

This is there website.

Sansa 260 R load main image failed message


Hello,

The Sansa e260 Rhapsody could be recovered by resetting the player.
How to reset the player :
1. Player switched on.
2. Press and hold the power button for approximately 30 seconds.
3. Put the player back on.


When the fault is not resolved a firmware update / reinstallation needs to be made. There are 2 steps needed for getting new firmware on the player.

Step 1: switching the player into recovery mode / MSC mode

1. Turn off the player.
2. Slide the Hold/Lock switch on top of the player so an orange color is showing.
3. Press and hold the REC button and connect the device to the computer.
4. A message will appear on the device display screen confirming the connection and a memory partition will be viewable in My Computer.
5. Release the REC button.
Step 2: Update the firmware ( updating firmware always in MSC mode, see Step 1 )
Use next link for updating the firmware:

The Sansa updater installation on the computer should be the easiest way to update firmware.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

My sansa e280 rhapsody says switch to recovery mode


Recovery mode is used to recover from a fatal error.

Follow these steps and youll be back in business.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

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

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.
