Question about SanDisk Sansa e130 MP3 Player
From some web browsing I gather that the e130 will handle 2Gb SD cards so I got one but it wouldn't work - I guessed that maybe I needed a firmware upgrade so ...
I tried to upgrade the firmware in my e130 using sansa-2.0.0.01e.exe and got an 'upgrade failed' message and now it won't turn on at all.
I've tried re-running the upgrade and it goes into 'Recovery mode ready' and fails with that as well.
Is there anything I can do to get this working again?
(I've tried the - remove battery for 5 min etc. fix but no go so far)
I'll hate to lose this beast as SWMBO and I both have (had) SD capable MP3 players so we could swap cards when we are on holiday.
Always make use of an XP Operating system when updating your Firmware. I tried several hours with Vista to no avail. Brain wave then came through me, and I tried an XP machine, woza, and fixed.

Try re-formatting the player (FAT) , run the upgrade, and format your 2gb card to FAT as well. Should work.
