Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
I need to know how I can locate firmware for a Sansa e250R, I bought this item, the seller told me it is refurbished and I had to load a version of Firmware on it. Can anyone out there help me? The main screen says '' Load main image failed''
Hey yeah i had the same problem with my sansa e250r. when mine does that i
1. turn it off
2. put the hold button on
3. hold down the rec. button
4. turn it back on
that will get you into recovery mode connect your data cable once you have hooked it up to your computer open my computer and you should see a 16mb drive there instead of your normal mp3.
once you see that open it up.
now go to http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449 scroll down and click on download firmware link
once you have downloaded that file unzip it and copy the file that is inside to the 16mb drive that you opened up in my computer.
once you have done all the above,,
1. take the hold button off
2. disconnect the data cable
3. wait for it to reboot.
if the above dosent work you might wanna take it to the dealer.
hopefully this works for you as well as it did me. good luck

I had same problem, sansa made it worse
i found some good firmware on this website
it is normal e250 firmware but it works
if you want rhapsody on it this is not for you
your player will act like a normal e250 not a rhapsody e250
i will post the link when i remember it
after downloading it i put it on.
NOTE you must get the firmware updater of of sansa because the firmware is older
this firmware will allow your system to boot up correctly but it is required you download the firmware updater from sandisk.com and it will be an updated working fine e250r--
BUT BEFORE YOU DO THIS, REMEMBER THIS WILL MAKE THE PLAYER EXACTLY LIKE A BASIC E250 AND NOT LIKE A RHAPSODY E250. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT AFTER YOU DO THIS, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE SUBSCRIPTION MUSIC LIKE RHAPSODY OR WINDOWS PLAYS FOR SURE--BUT THOSE ARE LAME ANYWAY.
I WILL POST THE LINK LATER.

Have you visited the Sansa website? They should have a list of all their products downloads.
