Default Sansa e260 Unicode?

Is there firmware now that allows the Sansa e260 to be compatible and read Chinese/Korean/Asian font languages? I have a lot of songs that show up as boxes and I'm looking for some firmware that would make the e260 support unicode ... >_>

If you have v1, you need to use the P firmware. The others are not very unicode friendly tho.

If you have v2, it should work with any version.

Thanks for the reply advcomp2019. I'm new to the Sansa players, but after a little research I found out I had the v2 e260.
And soo, my firmware was originally v03.01.11A, I looked around and got to the Sansa site and updated to v03.01.16. The update worked succesfully, but there is still no unicode support? Where do I go from here?

Are you using UTF-16 for the tags?

You can use MP3Tag or another tagging app.

Wait, the Sansa e200v1 series now supports Unicode (e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.) WITHOUT having to change the menu language to English or is this still needed?

If you use the P firmware, it should work. I think the A firmware had that unicode issue. I seen that with my Sansa, but I could be wrong tho.

Sorry for bumping...

I have a v1 e260, using 1.02.24A, and would like to try changing it to 1.02.24P to display unicode tags, would that work?

How do i do that? Just follow the manual firmware update procedures? (I assume I have to do it manually since I am using the latest .24A already)

And what's the default language for the player's menu after I switch to P firmware?
