 Thank you c1u31355, It's done!.

 

update! "using command32"

1. Download recover.rar from...

http://upload.com.ua/get/900093596
2. unpack the libusb-win32-device-bin-20060827.tar.gz to (example) c:\libusb
3 find e200tool.zip and unpack it to (example) c:\e200tool

lots of archives isnt it )))

DRIVER:
1. connect using manufacturing mode (hold button on + center button while connecting)
2. In device manager find unknown device under USB and update the driver. Select driver manually. Navigate to 0781-0720.inf (came with the archive) (c:\e200tool)
3. When windows promt you to install "libusb0.sys" direct it to с:\libusb\libusb-win32-device-bin-20060827\bin\
4. Start-> run -> cmd
5 type:
cd\
cd e200tool
e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
6. windows will find another usb device so instead of "0781-0720.inf" choose 0666-E200.inf
7 disconnect player and restart it

STEP 3 (recover bootloader)
1. connect player in manufacruring mode
2. Start-> run -> cmd
3 type:
cd\
cd e200tool
e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
but before you hit enter press and hold record button (very important)


Step $ (firmware update)

1. connect player in recovery mode (RECOVERY MODE!!!! with record button)
2. copy PP5022.mi4 to 16 mb partition
3 restart player

 

if you have a problem with the firmware updater or it doesn't recognize it get one "firmware.exe" to get up the software.

I got the e250.

Re: Sansa e280 No Screen only Blue wheel Light is illuminated

So I visit this site and everything is in Cryllic characters. I don't read Cryllic and so I don't know which of the links to click to make the download. Any help her?

Re: Sansa e280 No Screen only Blue wheel Light is illuminated

Afternoon, c1u3!!

 

The cyrillic link is here: it's the first one for recover.rar and the server is based upon cyrillic. The file is there in the box on the right, with a little stacked-books library logo.

 

Bob   Smiley Very Happy

 

For those who are undertaking an e200tool  operation, I believe that the same file is available by searching anythinbutipod.com or even rockbox.org, in case you are worried about a dubious pedigree for the download.

 

If you are going down this path, my strongest suggestion is to read the directions more than once, as they are detailed.  Be sure to print out the directions as a reference.

 

The manufacturing mode steps, plus the need to press the correct button before running the application listed, means that you must take your time!  Good luck!

So THAT'S what Cyrllic looks like! Looks like Romulan to me. Smiley Tongue

 

Pretty HOT chick on the left though! Smiley Surprised
