I first downloaded sansa firmware frm the link u gave,then the updater opened n showed my device at its left bottom ‘sansa E250 (firmware :1.02.18)’.
Then you did’t click on the right link. You want to install the firmware manually, not use the Updater. Delete that; you don’t need it and it’s a resource hog.
You want this:
First, verify that your e200 is a v1.
This can be found by going over to Settings > Info, and verify that “Version” starts with V01. Once this has been verified, go ahead and proceed with the firmware update steps below. If you do not have a v1, do not upgrade your firmware to this a different version! This could render your player useless!
Download the firmwares by clicking on the links below. Be sure to select the region you are in for full compatibility.

The instructions below applies to Windows , Mac , and Linux Operating Systems.
- Once downloaded, extract the .zip file into a folder (take note to remember where you saved it).
- Next, change the device’s mode from MTP to MSC by going to “Settings” then “USB Mode”, then selecting MSC.
- Next, connect the device to the computer and it should show up with a drive letter. In the root directory of the Sansa e200v1, add the firmware files you just extracted from the zip.
- Once its been added, disconnect the device, it will then say that it is upgrading the firmware. It will eventually turn off. Once it turns off, turn it back on, and it should ask you for a language to select. Once the language is chosen, head to Settings > Info and verify that the “Version” is the same as the latest verstion, mentioned above.
