Default Is there a way to convert a e200R to e200?

I was wondering if there is a way to replace the e200 rhapsody (e200r) firmware with a normal e200 firmware (e200), effectively converting the player to a normal e200

No, I'd recommend that you don't try that.

If you'd like to make it only under windows and don't want rockbox,
I suggest you install only multiboot for e200r

1. get "e200rpatcher.exe", "pp5022.mi4 for e200", ("pp5022.mi4 for e200r", if you want rhapsody)
2. learn "howto e200r patch" from rockbox or this forum
3. connect e200r through USB mode rhapsody
4. get "MultiBL-e200r.zip" and unzip it to e200r root directory
5. copy pp5022.mi4(e200) to system directory and change filename F0.mi4 (default boot image)
6. copy pp5022.mi4(rhapsody) to system directory and change filename to F1.mi4
...

actually mine was e250r,
my process was
1. e200r patch
2. e200r multiboot pp5022.mi4 to root directory
3. copy .rockbox to root directory
4. copy pp5022.mi4(pacific for Korean display) to system and rename F0.mi4
5. copy Font.fnt(pacific) to root directory
6. copy pp5022.mi4(rhapsody) to system directory and rename F2.mi4
7. copy pp5022.mi4(rockbox for e200r) to system and rename F1.mi4

so mine is default Pacific model, select button with rockbox, up button with rhapsody

is it helpful?

So if I got an e270R from eBay even though they did not say it was the Rhapsody model, I should try to return it as opposed to trying to make it work normal? I really just wanted to get a good e270 Refurbished. I have had so many problems getting the right thing(I got an empty box from the first company I bought from). I just wanted to have a good MP3 player for my girlfriend for Christmas. Should I send this back though now?

Please let me know as soon as you can. I was hoping this would be ready for Christmas...

I'm not sure it's worth all the trouble to de-Rhapsody the unit unless you really have to have Rockbox (which isn't ported to R units).

If you format the unit you'll get rid of all the pre-loaded Rhapsody songs. That's the main annoyance.

Then the only differences are minor ones. There is a Rhapsody Channels heading that she can just ignore. The two Mode settings are called Rhapsody (instead of MSC) and PlaysForSure (instead of MTP). And the type face on the Rhapsody is actually a little smoother and better than on the regular v1 units.

If I remember correctly, R units also play .aac files and regular ones don't.

Using the unit is exactly the same--drag-and-drop in Rhapsody mode and WMP sync in PlaysForSure mode. So why bother or take chances?

Thanks for the response. I think I will see if I can return this and get the non-Rhapsody version. I want what I paid for. I don't want to have to ignore stuff. Thanks for the response. So far the guy I bought from has been very helpful and quick to respond also, so it shouldn't be too much of a pain.

If there are no Rhapsody songs that I want, can I just format the puppy, download the latest firmware then add Rockbox??

I like things to be simple, like me

Format your player and manually load firmware (w/o R). The players are all the same; the only difference in the Rhapsody models is the firmware version.

If you have a v1 player, look for 01.02.18 ('a' if in America)firmware release. There's a newer vers. (01.02.24) but it's a little buggy. Vers .18 works fine. Type the version number into the search box. You might find a copy of it here somewhere. If not, you can Google it.

If you're running a v2 player, the latest release (while not perfect) is very stable. It is vers. 03.01.16. Note: you can't put Rockbox on v2 units, only v1's.

Whichever f/m version you end up downloading, remember they will be in a .zip file so you have to extract them before you can install them on your player. Save the .zip file somewhere on your computer, so you'll have in the future if you need it. That way you won't have to go around looking for it.
