Verify that the device DOES NOT say RHAPSODY on the back or E2**R. This would indicate the rhapsody version, whereas the firmware is totally different.

If it is simply a E200, try this;

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

http://rapidshare.com/files/67740173/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.

When your operating system on the computer is Windows:
Run the Sansa Firmware Updater to get the Sansa Media Converter: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/101/related/1

When your operating system on your computer is Mac, or when you want to update manually:
go to the Sansa forum: http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200

Accessing the microSD card:

Verify the version of the player. To check, go to Settings > Info.
For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards

Sansa E250 model version


When you go to the Sandisk website, look for the firmware under the Support --> Downloads section. The firmware you need is listed under Sansa e200 series - the Sandisk website is one of the only ones that I know about that gives a generic series number more often than an exact model number.

Dont know how to put pictures in my mp3


To transfer photos and video to your Sansa e250:
1. Open Sansa Media Converter on your PC
2. Connect Sansa e250 to the computer.
The detected Sansa e250 will list the available space and total space on the
device. If more than one device is inserted, only the first device will be
supported.
3. Add the media files to be converted
4. The Sansa Media Converter will place all files in MyAlbum unless you
type in a new Album Name at the bottom of the screen. Use this option
to organize your files and slide shows.
5. Press to start the conversion process. A status box will appear
showing which file(s) are being converted.
6. Photos and Video can not be transferred to the microSD card.
7. Do not move your photo or video files from the location the Sansa
Media Converter places them.
8. See Safely removing your Sansa from the Computer instructions
below.

SanDisk 2GB Sansa e250 doesn't turn on


Ok. I'm Mexican and my English is not so well but I have an solution that I'll like to share.

You have to download this file http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449
and unzip in the Desk of windows . It's name is "pp5022.mi4"

Open the Notepad program and create a file whit name "sansa.fmt". IMPORTANT Dont save it like "sansa.txt" or "sansa.fmt.txt"
(We don't have to put anything in the notepad file, live it blank) and saved in the windows Desk same as "pp5022.mi4" file.
If you don't know where is notepad program go to "star" then "programs" then "accessories" and you'll find it there.


NOW...
First step be sure that your sansa is off
then put the lock switch in the position orange (Sansa Locked)
Then press the Microphone bottom and keep holding, at the same press the menu bottom and keep holding too at the same time.
Wait until you are in the Recovery Mode.
Then conect your sansa to the computer.
And it's gonna appear a new window whit a "version.txt" file.
Take the 2 files that you created in the Desk and drag and drop to the sansa. Then unplug your sansa to the pc.
Now turn on the sansa but Unlocked before.
And I hope that your problem have been gone.
Adios

Sansa e250


You will need to do a firmware update format on the player.
Tech support at sandisk can send you the file you need via email, they do every day.
If you have the file, then put the player in recovery mode and drag the file to the 16MB icon in My Computer

Sanse e200 freezing up for no reason!!!


Hi. It seems like your player decided to throw a hissy fit by deciding to experience internal system errors. Best that you reset the firmware. Here's how: Switch your Sansa E250 to its Recovery Mode: 1. Make sure the player is powered off 2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface 3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button. 4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E250 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode" 5. Connect your E250 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above) 6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E250 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6. Next, Apply the firmware for the E250 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time): Step 1: Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E250 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe Step 2: Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred. Step 3: When the process is complete, unplug your E250 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch Step 4: Power up your E250 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. Step 5: Enjoy using your Sansa E250, just like I do. (I love this player)
