Default GNU/Linux, firmware update, possible ?

Hi All,

I about to buy a new mp3 player. I am about to purchase the Sansa express, but have one doubt.

I running GNU/Linux, (Debian, Lenny). I have no access to a windows machine.

From what I have researched to complete a firmware update, in GNU/Linux I extract the fimware. bin (e.g. m300a.bin)
http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/boar...hread.id=12913

And place this file on the root of the mp3 player flash memory and just umount.

Can anyone confirm ? Do not want to but a device I can not update and I want to use 4GB microSD cards. Otherwise the express fit exactly want a need (playlist slection, genre, expandable storage, low price, reliable)

Thanks,
Brendan

Basically, no. You need both Windows and an internet connection.

The instructions you found were for the clip, not the se.
