Re: The Latest Sansa Firmware Updater (Version 1.200)

I Just got screwed by the new updater...

 

It informed me there was a newer updater, and new firmware.

 

So I click install, it downloads the updater, deletes my old updater, then informs me it can not run on win2k !!!!!   WTF  it didnt even leave my working copy intact!!

 

Is there anywhere I can get the OLD version of the updater that DOES work with win2k

 

HELP!!!!

Re: The Latest Sansa Firmware Updater (Version 1.200)

You really don't need the Updater. It's just as easy to manually update your firmware when a new release comes out. This is a seldom-occurring event, so having the Updater hang around waiting to be used, trying to connect and searching for updates every time you plug in your player is a PITA and totally un-necessary. Besides it's a drain on your system, slowing it down. Most people who have had their Sansas for any length of time have deleted this useless piece of crap-ware and just update manually when the need arises.

 

There is always manual updating instructions in every firmware release notice here on the forum. Besides, you may want to wait on updating to see if there are any 'new' bugs in it before loading it on your machine. Sometimes it's 2 steps forward and 1 step back. :smileywink:

Apparently your missing the point... I know how to do everything manualy etc etc... but its an effort I'm not willing to put forth watching for updates. Hence the Updater served a purpose by doing that FOR me. As for the resource use, I realy don't think thats an issue.

 

If the new updater was not compatible with my system, it should not have destroyed the old version before finding that out. hence me being pissed about it. 

 

So the Question still stands, where can I get the version of the updater that WILL run on my win2k sys.

Strange thing happened to me  while I have tried to update,

NOD 32  defined the update as a trojan :mansurprised:

 

10/31/2008 6:46:22 PM    Real-time file system protection    file    C:\Program Files\SanDisk\Sansa Updater\SansaUpdater.tmp    probably a variant of Win32/Genetik trojan    cleaned by deleting - quarantined    NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM    Event occurred on a new file created by the application: C:\Program Files\SanDisk\Sansa Updater\SansaUpdater.exe.

Re: The Latest Sansa Firmware Updater (Version 1.200)

Have you read this post further up this thread?

 

The firmware update links, instructions, & details about the release are in the stickies (shaded posts) at the top of the Clip board. There are 2 different hardware version models of the Clip. Make sure you get the correct firmware version for your player. The posts warn you and advise you on how to tell the difference. :smileyhappy:
