Re: e200v1 01.02.24 Firmware Download & Instructions

The aforementioned firmware rollback method only works if the Sansa is operational, and if it has not been smashed into many pieces with a hammer.  If either of those two conditions apply to your Sansa, other remedies will be needed. 
Is this the right room for an argument?

OMG, my friend, CN, the Pink Floyd of Techies, hahahah.

You are just too ruthless! You bad dog!

Now FreeSky? .......... "Oh, no you d'n't." (not really, ....... did you?)

And thanks for the Kudos, CN ....... on my single stroke of genius for my lifetime in being able to change firmware update filename paths to accessing past archival firmware updates, or basically "down"-dates or firmware downgrades. Anywho, thanks,  ...... You and NeutronBOB ...... should we call him Neu'ny, are pretty cool. Isn't there also a MooseGuy too. Greetings to you all!

I think I am about ready to try on Rockbox for a fit ......... probably a "hissy-fit" will be more like it, hahah.

 ........ and aaaaaaaaaaa ......... BTW, why did we somehow stop at "rule five"?Smiley Surprised

Not that anyone is going to be astonished by this news, but 01.02.24 does NOT fix the "white screen of death during video playback" bug.

Re: e200v1 01.02.24 Firmware Download & Instructions

i think that if there was any way possible,

a new firmware should allow us to play other media rather than just music off the microsd,

and maybe even allow us to use sdhc cards as well, but thats not as important,

i really do not want to get rockbox because i like the way original firmware works,

but it seems that many of the things i would like to be able to do i can only do on a v2,

and since i didnt know this v1/v2 firmware info when i bought the player, i cant return and get it,

so my only hope is that the next firmware will 'magicaly' allow us to do this,

after all, if a 3rd party firmware can have this stuff, why cant the original?

If still under warranty, you can always pray that your v1 pukes out, gets RMAed, and they send you a shiny new v2.  That's what happened to my v1, although I didn't pray for it to happen, as I liked the Rockbox firmware on my v1.  The really nice thing was being able to switch between the Sansa And Rocbox firmwares at will...

There is a version 1 firmware wishlist here.  It would be appropriate to post your requests to that thead. 

Doing so, however, is a big fat waste of time.  Not even one request on that thread showed up in the new firmware -- Sandisk fixed a bug that no one complained about.  The e200 is discontinued (or will be soon) and replaced by the Fuze.  Sandisk has demonstrated, repeatedly and without exception, that they don't give a rat's xxx about customer requests.  It is unlikely that v.1 firmware will ever be updated again. 

The good news is, rockbox firmware provides many of these features (for the v.1 only, so far), if you want to go that route. 

G'luck.

Error copying files PP5022.mi4 and BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom onto my Sansa e250v1

I own a Sansa e250 v1 player. 

I tried to use Sansa Updater 1.083 to obtain Firmware version 1.02.24. 

I waited patiently while the green download bar showed me the progress all the way up to 77%, then jumped to 100%.  

Then it said in red letters "The installation failed.  Please try again later." 

I have tried many times, same result.

 

Per your instructions, I downloaded the following file and unzipped it:

  http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/e200/e200v101.02.24a.zip

 

I changed the MTP to MSC.  When I tried to place PP5022.mi4 and BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom into the

root directory of the Sansa e250, I obtained the following error messages:

 

Error Copying File or Folder
Cannot copy PP5022: The directory or file cannot be created.

Error Copying File or Folder
Cannot copy BL_SD_boardSupportSD: The directory or file cannot be created.

 

I did try Copying and Pasting these files onto other areas of my computer with no problem. 

They just don't want to go onto the Sansa e250.

I'm figuring that there must be some setting that is preventing me from loading them onto the Sansa.

Can you provide any suggestions?   Thank you in advance.

David-

 

Be sure that the two firmware files are unzipped prior to transfer into the root directory of the Sansa. Also, have the device in MSC mose. Be sure to drag and drop the two files into the open Windows Explorer box, and NOT into any of the folders shown; this box represents the root directory.

 

If the transfer doesn't work, unplug the Sansa, and turn it off.

 

Switch the LOCK / HOLD switch to the right (towards the headphone jack) with the orange bar showing.

 

Hold the REC button depressed while connecting the USB cable. Keep the button depressed until the device shows up in Windows Explorer (My Computer) as 16MB FORMAT. (Reminder: do not try "formatting" this reserved partition!!)

 

Drag and drop the two files into this wee beastie, and disconnect.

 

Turn the HOLD switch back to off.

 

Success?

 

Fingers crossed.

 

Bob Smiley Very Happy
