Screen wont go past opening screen

Let's transform your device into a stable workhorse, and you'll have a great performing device.

You can load firmware version 01.02.24, the latest release, or 01.02.18, the predecessor, and you'll be happy with a bug-free machine.

You'll need to use Recovery Mode to load the two files that are downloaded from the above link:


Unzip these two files.

Now, for a repair from the Hebrew Beta version, you will need to RENAME these two files as:


Since I just had two coffees, here's how to load the two files:

Turn your e200v1 off.
Slide the HOLD switch to the right (orange showing).

Open a Windows Explorer window via My Computer or my favorite [Windows Key] + E.

Press and hold the REC button down while plugging in the Sansa.
The display will say "welcome to recovery mode" and the sansa will show up as a new icon 16MB FORMAT.


Double click on the 16MB FORMAT (reserved partition) to access it.

Drag and drop the RENAMED files into the partition.

Right click, and select Eject.
Slide the HOLD switch back to off.
Unplug your Sansa.

It will replace the previous firmware with the universal 01.02.24 version, and no more Lil' Monsta logo.

If you followed these steps, your music will STILL be there for you!

Enjoy your repaired device. From now on, you will use the firmware files with the original names, so you can rename these back to their original names for future use. The Hebrew version was a buggy mess, apparently.

Best of luck to you!!

Sansa Player - Unrecognized USB Device

alrigth it seems like you have formatted the recovery partition
if your sansa are working .. well if it´s starts then you should try
to go into recovery mode by having hold (on) and push rec button while starts the mp4 if it comes into recovery mode there then you can relese the rec button and connect the mp4 to the computer there you should see a device (15-16 mb ) in there it should be a file named : pp5022.mi4 you may try reset your sansa ( change the pp5022.mi4 file) you can download from

if you can´t come into reovery mode you got to do following
take it step by step and carefully read all twice before you starts:
you need to download ubuntu live cd learn more about that on it´s is a open source os it´s free and anyone can change stuffs ect...
then burn ubuntu 7.10 to a cd or dvd
in the iso file i think after burning close the cd
and boot from the live cd with ubuntu so then when using ubuntu (you dont need to install it ) you do this :

There's four files you need to get, plus one you need to create. Copy and paste the following lines:
mkdir ~/e200t
cd ~/e200t
touch sansa.fmt

After everything finishes downloading, check the md5sum for each file:
md5sum *
That should return:

af26eb02fc3454f5264bb028107a2700 BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
d9f946067844e2a24fcbb6cfedb75057 PP5022.mi4
795cc4e75d38284a1460b840fc14967a e200tool
cecb257eeb64ceaae9cb20d9956a0bfc i2c-e260.bin
d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e sansa.fmt

If any of those lines don't match, redownload the file and check the md5sum again.

Then, make the e200tool file executable, switch to root (if you aren't already; enter password if needed), put your Sansa into Manufacturing mode, and program the i2c:
Keep in mind - there seems to be a 15 second timeout for Manu mode, so if you get a -71 error, try again.
chmod +x e200tool
sudo su
(Put sansa in Manu mode)
./e200tool init
./e200tool i2cprogram i2c-e260.bin
Also, you can use that i2c file even if you don't have an e260 - they're all the same.

I don't have a working Linux computer at the moment, but I believe at this point you need to turn your Sansa off. Hold power for 15 seconds, then go back to Manu mode.
Next, recover the bootloader to get to recovery mode:
./e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
When the display turns on, hold the REC button. If you don't get into recovery mode, try again.
Once in Recovery mode, place
i2c-e260.bin, BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom, PP5022.mi4, and sansa.fmt
on the recovery mode drive.

Disconnect the sansa, turn off hold, and it should (hopefully) work. (chris did help me with this )
if you got any problems send a mail to and write sansa e200 in top off message and try to say the problem if you got one let me know if you fix it it always fun :D
hopes this helps
