Read Chrisjs' last 2 posts above yours. The corrupted certificate only affects Rhapsody to go when you have the player in Rhaposdy mode. Switch it to Playsforsure mode, authorize the device and you can sync your to go content minus the channels.

Default DUH!

Thanks for pointing this out to me, I completely overlooked that post about reverting back to non-R. DUH!

I am will try syncing w/PlaysForSure and R2Go later tonight and follow up.

Also, you noted that when you sync in Rhapsody mode, you get nothing on the player. Well, when I sync, I do get the songs onto the player, but then when I try to play them, I get the dreaded "You must synchronize your player..."

Not sure if this makes any difference, but I wanted to see what conclusion could be drawn. Either way, I think the certificate fix provides the gold key we need to fully "unlock" a hacked e200"R" device.

I emailed Rhapsody and advised them of the certificate error and they sent me a fix which didn't work. So like Chrisjs said, it is probably a hardware thing.

Highlight the player on the left and look in the lower right corner. I have a hard time believing 3 of us have this issue and you don't since the certificate is probably stored onboard.

I agree with Slaughter - are you sure you have an e200 and you put the e200R firmware/bootloader on it?

Default Follow up on R2Go syncing

I have been able to sync with Rhap2Go on my "upgraded" e280R by switching to PlaysForSure mode. In Rhapsody mode you get the certficate error, for reasons previously mentioned in this thread.

On the upside, I can state that I do like the "R" version fonts better and I feel like my player responds faster than before (non-R), particularly when I move from song to song using the PREV/NEXT buttons.

So I guess until I retire my e280"R", it will remain an "R".

Thanks for all the help from all those who've posted to this thread.

Let me see if I have this right:

It is not possible to use Rhapsody Channels on a non 'r' e200?

Correct. The Rhapsody support is apparently in the hardware.

The Rhapsody Channels is not hardware. It is in the firmware.

Right, but the channels cannot be used without the "R" hardware.

Well that's no fun. I was hoping to pick up a cheap refurbed e250 for the wife and turn it into an 'r' so she can drop Channels onto it like I do with my e280r. We both love Rhapsody. Oh well, I guess I will wait for the prices to come down as the holidays come near.

What's special about the bootloader in the first post? I tried this with the standard PP5022.mi4 Rhapsody file and one of the standard e200 bootloaders and it didn't work, but it does seem to work fine with the one in the first post on this thread. Once this mystery bootloader is used, however, I seem to have no trouble using standard e200 bootloaders with e200r firmwares. Strange.

I've restored the player back to vanilla with e200tool and tried again and again, but it seems that without this special bootloader, it just doesn't work. Am I correct in assuming it was patched? If so, what was changed?

No, it wasn't patched. These are the files *straight* from SanDisk. You can even find them on thier site. Also, I managed to get the e200R back to a regular e200, by booting into the vinilla Bl from e200tool, then copying over the vinilla firmware and bootloader. So it is possible.

They aren't *straight* from Sandisk - otherwise they wouldn't be on Bagder's site

Or by copying over the vanilla firmware and patched bootloader.

Hi Everyone - First Post Here.
I just got Two Sansa e250's from the latest Woot. Been doing a lot of reading and searching. This thread covers two important topics, Rockbox is obvious, to move from "non R" to an "R" is not so clear.
Is it worth it? My main use of the Sansa will be to Sync to Rhapsody. Will the R version allow better Sync? Any other reasons for me to move to an "R"?
Thanks for any help.
Hef

The e200 does not work with rhapsody. Use e200R to sync with rhapsody.

Do you mean it simply Does not work or doesn't work well? I've read that it works with Rhapsody as a play for sure device, but that transfer times are slow, and generally there are problems.
Am I wrong about this?

For those that have moved from a e2xx to e2xxR, is it working well with Rhapsody to Go?

Appreciate any feedback.

Thanks
Hef

I believe I purchased the same woot as you if the timing of your post stamp is correct. I would also be interested in knowing the difference. On one hand I have read that it will work in play4sure mode and not Rhapsody, on the other I hear the e200 will not work with Rhapsody at all.

Or is it the syncing will work, but not the channels.. I'm not a Rhapsody user as of yet, but enquiring minds wanna know
