I tried doing the "ultimate fix" on my e260 (I'm encountering the dreaded language screen at start up) But the downgrade software gave me these errors. 1 and 2 I'm on my windows ME right now.

heres a link to the firmware you need:

use 7-zip to extract the files

Default I have an e200, which freezes almost at the start.

I have an e200, which freezes almost at the start.
I turn it on, the lights go on the the weird creature runs about -- and then it freezes. I tried running in recovery mode, but when I run the exe updater it says:
"ERROR!
Application failed to read the version details".

I tried copying the files from the zip that's on the main message, and again--nothing happens.

I have the Hebrew firmware. It was running ok for a long time(though freezing once in awhile...)..

Dunno what to do... I need help

Here's what to do: download the firmware from here http://www.filesend.net/download.php...6f69408b4dd174
unzip the files, rename the .rom file to pribootLoader.rom make sure the L in Loader is capitalized rename the MI4 file to firmware.mi4 and copy them to the 16MB-FORMAT while in recovery mode and it will install the old firmware and you will be happy

So now that i'm on a windows xp proffesional and i try to run the downgrade software, it says:

'No valid device appears to connected. Please connect a valid device.
Warning: Please connect your e200 series mp3 in MSC mode.
To go to MSC mode, in your device, go to "Settings" > "USB mode"> MSC'
I'm at my wit's end here. I've been getting the language screen for almost a month now and thought the ultimate fix would help, except that i get this message. As per the instructions, i'm running this in Recovery mode.
Since my problem is the perpetual language screen, at startup all the settings go back to default(mtp mode, etc). Is there anything else i can do? I even put the blank sansa.fmt file in recovery mode and it restarted as if nothing had happened, with all my files still in there(i'm playing it now).
I'd appreaciate any tips.

Hey
If I reformat my player just like it is descirbed in this how-to it means that all data on it will be deleted, right?
is there no chance of rescuing my files?

yea, reformatting erases everything on this player, except the firmware, which is on a hidden spot on the player that cant be accessed except in recovery mode

Check both the boxes on the error checking window that pops up, and click start.

After it finishes, check your player to make sure your player is normal.
Thank you so much! It worked! I have no idea how those files got there, but all of a sudden my Sansa would freeze after playing one song and sometimes it didn't even let me get into play that one song! I tried deleting the files, but all I could do was delete my music and try to start over again. But thank you, my Sansa is now weird file free!

Okay, I think it's best to say my problem here. My sansa e250 has 2 gigs of memory. For some reason, half of that memory is all taken up. And it doesn't show what it's taken up by. So now I can only use half of it's memory, which bothers me. I've tried formatting four times, and it still shows that half of the memory is taken up.

do you have the Rhapsody version? if not, then you should have about 1.84GB free or something around that. thats really weird if you dont have the R version... try this...
plug your player in, in MSC mode.
go to start/run, type in "chkdsk /x" without the quotes, where "x" is the drive letter of your player.
when it is complete, format the drive thru windows, and select FAT32.

I had the same problem, tried several times to reload as perdirections, only resolved when I unmounted the sandisk (safely removed hardware in windows terms) and after the sansa was shutting itself off, i switched the hold button back to free (non orange) and that allowed the sansa to update properly.....

Thanks! That was such a big help! All of the memory is freed. I just wonder what took it up? I must ask, does 'chkdsk' stand for 'check disk', or is it just random letters?

I have followed your ultimate fix and I can finally now see the normal sansa screen but I am getting the following error: Not enough space for Music.DB. Please free up 6MB.

I have reformatted it 4 times now. I have also ran the chkdsk /x to no avail.

I am leaving in 4 days for a very long plane ride and I desperately need this fixed.

Thanks so much for all the information you have put out here. Do you have any further suggestions for me? My model is e250.

Exclamation Problems with my Sansa 260

ive tried firmware updates...
ive tried formatting it...
ive contacted Sandisk Support...
I dont know what else to do.

my player is "empty" according to my computer, but the names of all my songs still appear on my player. When i try to "play" them, it says the artist, the album, and the song. below this it says ( 00:00 -00:00 ).

I keep jumping from one problem to the next.

Also, when i try synchronizing music back onto the player it says
"Song already on Device" or "Error" its very irritating becuase nothing is playing.

can someone help me?...
