Angry "load image fail" ++

so i loaded this sansa e200r mi4 file for fun(i dont have an e200r, its just a plain e200) and i opend it in rockbox, and i had to do a soft reset, and then when i turn it on (of or not) it ses "load main image failed
Switch to recovery mode"
and when i switch to recovery mode, it ses "******* welcome.....********
please connect usb cable" so i do and i ses that i did, but on the computer it shows up as "16mb format"
and i cant do anything, and when i disconnect the cable it ses that its gonna reset the system, and when it turns on again it ses the same thing again. UGH!!!!!

You reinstall the OF. After that, just redo the steps with the right firmware.

So let me get this straight - you install a random firmware copy not knowing how to recover from it? Look in the Ultimate FAQ - there should be an article on fixing it.

no i didnt <b>install</b> some random firmware, , and it wasnt random either, it was for the same dimentions and hardwear as what i have, so it shouldnt matter, and i only loaded the mi4 file onto it, thats not installing it.

Then what do you call putting a firmware which is known to not work for your model, onto your Sansa?

But different bootloader, which can't read the firmware. Based on your thinking, I can dual boot Windows and Linux and have Windows run my Linux programs, because it's the same computer and same hardware.

Placing it on the Sansa is loading. Disconnecting the Sansa and having it restart is installing. Seeing that you let it restart, you installed the firmware.
