For e200R - The latest version available is 22.214.171.124. This update is for e200R Players Only.
Let me start off by saying that majority of people will be able to update his/her firmware through the Sansa Firmware Updater. There is even a how-to video that explains the process. If for any reason the aforementioned steps do not work for you, then please feel free to continue by trying the more “computer savy” steps, described below.
First, verify that your e200 is a Rhapsody version. Once this has been verified, go ahead and proceed with the firmware update steps below.
If you do not have a Rhapsody version, do NOT upgrade your firmware to this version! This could render your player useless!
