I have also encountered the same problem. "Load main image failed Switch to Recovery Mode" What I did was: 1. Download and install the Firmware Updater Software from SanDisk "http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe" 2. Bring up the Sansa into recovery mode by: -Switch the Hold Switch to Locked Position -Hold (and continue to hold) the Record button -Press the menu button (may a need an extra hand) while plugging in the USB Cable to the computer 3. After the Sansa is in the Recovery Mode saying: "... Enter 2.0 MSD" (Means that it is currently in MSD) 4. Right Click on the Sansa Firmware Updater icon in the System Tray (near the clock) and select "Update Now" 5. Once the dialogue box appears, DO NOT SELECT AMERICA, but chose Japan and Update. 6. Follow it's procedures till the end. -The screen will tell you to unplug then press finish. BUT WAIT! -I press the finish button first, then right click on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on the System Tray and properly stopped the USB device. -After stopping (and unplugging), the Sansa's screen continues with the rebooting process and finishes the update. -It will automatically restart, but the Hold Switch is still on Lock. I must then turn off the Hold Switch and press Menu to turn on the Sansa. -So far, it seems to work. In summary, I think the "America" download site doesn't have the latest firmware to fix this problem, but the Japan site does. Next, the improper unplugging of the device may prevent the update process to complete. I've seen from other forums that people who had prematurely (improperly) stopped the updating process.
