its easy if you are afraid that it may modified you current installation of windows, just do what i did, unplug all the hard drive you have, then boot from the ubuntu cd, not much can go wrong...

hope that helps

Can anyone please just explain why this feat is so not accomplishable in Windows? I have no idea what I'm doing in Linux, but apparently it's the "only way" to unbrick an e200? You say, run the e200 tool. That's great. I run the e200 tool and it starts to work and then times-out. So, "download the files seperately and edit e200tool.c" Okay, did that too. Puppy doesn't come with a compiler. Ubuntu is impossible to navigate.

Is there any reason why this thread exists if A) it lists the directions on using the e200 tool in Windows (which apparently doesn't work cuz I've tried it), and B) it doesn't list step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish this is Linux? Anyone?

I'm not an idiot with computers but this has grown to become very frustrating!

It's "not accomplishable" because nobody with the required Windows development skill has stepped up to port e200tool. The guys who work with it use Linux. The source is available, so if you think you can make it work on windows, please do - a number of people, myself included, will be very grateful.

Ubuntu is not impossible to navigate. I use it everyday. Originally I used Knoppix; aside from having to download libusb, it was quite easy to get it going.

This thread exists because a lot of people can figure it out for themselves given the instructions on how to build and run e200tool on Linux. Since each Linux distribution is different, providing step-by-step instructions that make it work on each distribution possible is just not practical. The steps you need to follow are not that complicated, but you need to be willing to sit down and do a little research, if only so that you can understand what's going on for yourself. Nothing here is automated or user friendly. IMO, you shouldn't play with fire if you can't be bothered to learn some fire safety first anyway.

when running terminal, you have to make sure that you are in the right folder.
to make it easy, try to put the e200tool on your desktop.
and then run your terminal, change directory to your Desktop.

actually i just unbrick my sansa e260 yesterday, following tutorial in this thread. i use fedore 5 to do the unbricking.( I'm a Linux newbie ) and now, my player runs smoother than it use to be.

i try to unbrick it in windows, no luck..
after trying 3 different linux fedora machine, it finally came back to life.
sometimes one linux machine can't do the job. you have to try other linux machine.

one more thing, if you do all the command correctly, and still it doesn't bring your e200 back to life, put the sansa.fmt file to 16MB drive, it will force format the player, but will bring it to life. I did it, and it works.

thanks to all senior....

I was going to use it as a bootable usb storage device to fix a computer and formatted it using HPUSBFW.EXE then copied the files needed to it and after disconnecting it it won't even turn on. Just the blue ring goes on and I have to hold the power button down to shut it off. I tried everything! Holding the rec button down when locked, removing the battery, the recovery tool... nothing works. When I connect it my computer it can't even install the hardware. Please help asap. (using windows xp)

There is an e200tool for Windows, but it is buggy tho. You could use a Linux LiveCD, too.

Not really. I think Ubuntu might be the easiest one if you have a newer computer.

hello there..
before i start, sorry for my english..

i followed step-by-step the guide made by yowu7446, changing only the directory of the e200tool. what happens is that when i type in the terminal, all i get is this:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo /home/ubuntu/e200tool recover BL_SD_BOARDSUPPORTSD.rom
e200tool v0.2.3-alpha (c) by MrH 2006, 2007
Searching for device 0781:0720 ... found!
Initializing USB stub (4780 bytes) ... done!
Writing 'BL_SD_BOARDSUPPORTSD.rom' to address 0x10600000
Searching for device 6666:e200 ... 9 found!
Write at 0x106031f5
Control message (-71, Protocol error)


i spent several hours trying and trying and it almost always ended up with Control message (-71, Protocol error)..
what is this error?
should i just keep trying and hope i get lucky or is there a way to fix it?

thanks

I think you are not holding the REC button long enough or slipping off of the button.
