Question about SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Rockbox I used Rockbox on my Sansa e270 and it was working fine, but then it started to screw it up so i took rockbox off my player. When i turned my player on, it still shows the rockbox screen and then shuts off. When i turn the player to the original screen by pressing and holding the left arrow button, it turns on in original mode and then freezes, how do i reset my player? I held down the power button, but nothing happens....

I have rockbox on my sansa fuze mp3 player and i want to reset it

Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware, press and hold the
Left button while turning on the player.
The player will always boot into the original firmware if it is powered by a USB
connection, and additionally will do so if USB is inserted while rockbox is running without
holding Select. This feature may be removed in the future when Rockbox is able to
handle USB transfers natively.
