[Firmware] Sansa View Firmware 1.03.02 Download

[ Edited ]

We suggest you update the firmware through the Sansa Firmware Updater. There is even a how-to video that explains the process. If for any reason the Sansa Firmware Updater does not work for you, feel free to continue by trying the more "computer savy" steps described below.

If you prefer to use the drag and drop file method, then please follow the instructions below.


Mac
and Linux users can connect their View in MSC mode and follow the instructions below.

MSC mode instructions below:

  1. Turn on the View

The 01.03.02 firmware is the latest release as of June 30, 2008 for the Sansa View. Firmware and release notes are available below.

  1. Extract the .zip file into a folder on your computer.
  2. Once extracted, drag all files to the root directory of your Sansa View.

Re: [Firmware] Sansa View Firmware 1.03.02 Download

When I saw the following in the release notes:

 

        Inconsistent battery life for music playback

 

I thought you had fixed the bad battery life issue which was introduced with the 1.02.09 firmware (10-12 hours max with music).  But the battery life is just as bad with 1.03.02.  It did fix the lockups when using random playback though.  Can the battery life be fixed to be as good as it was with 1.01.06.  I got 20+ hours with that one.

Re: [Firmware] Sansa View Firmware 1.03.02 Download

Hi...I just wanted to ask where do you find the links to download directly the firmware? I tried to browse http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/ but it seems it's not possible.

 

Is there a way to look for updates without using the sansa updater?

 

Thanks

c200 Page

 

Be sure to check what c200 version you have by checking the back bottom right side of your device before loading firmware.
