First off, let me begin with the fact that I’ve troubleshooted this problem for 4 days straight now. I’ve un-installed, re-installed, system restored, safe moded,tried to find another way of getting SMC and the firmware, everything. I can’t find SMC anywhere online that’s the latest version, I can’t find another alternative means of getting the firmware, and I can’t find any way of getting this file to work.
So I’ll explain briefly whats happening. I launch the SansaUpdaterInstall.exe and wait…to no avail. The only thing that happens with it is that it keeps making a folder with various files in my application data area pertaining to it, but does the actualy Sansa Update launch? No, it does not. The only thing it does show is a brief two seconds of work, then stops bothering to do a thing after. It’s frustrating because this worked 5 days ago, then out of nowhere it just stops working when I decide to re-download SMC (The updater didn’t give me the option to download it at the time for some reason even though I lost SMC to a clean-up from a 3rd party program, so I thought re-installing Sansa Updater would give me the option). Of course I wasn’t expecting THIS to happen at all.
So I beg of anyone who sees this message, explain to me the reasoning behind this bizarre behavior irradiating from the installer, or for the sake of mercy give me some kind of link to the firmware and SMC. If all else fails, I’m just going to re-format my entire hard drive for a sure-fire way of fixing this (Assuming that it even fixes it in the first place, HAH that would make my day).
EDIT: After scanning through some topics, I realize that some people link troubled victims to the SMC section, telling them to not download the updater in the first place. The problem is we kind of NEED the updater to download SMC now, it’s like all traces of direct links to the recent SMCs vanished under the scope. But please, don’t tell me to not download the updater and to download SMC seperately. Because well, that’s just not…possible if you think about it.
