Default So I think I just bricked my sansa e250

I had this problem that I cant remove things from my sansa. I tried formating and new firmware but nothing helped. Now I found e200tool for linux and I tried it.Tried that guide on that daniel page. I but that i2c.bin file into my sansa in recovery mode. After that i disconnected my sansa from the pc. And now when I start my sansa the blue light starts and thats all(black screen). So I tried again to connect my sansa to the pc, but the pc dosent reconize my sansa anymore. Tried lsusb and it thosent show my sansa. And e200tools gives:

Have you tried restarting the Sansa? Are you holding the REC button when running the e200tool?

Sounds like you did brick it, but I am not not 100% sure.

You might be able to, but you have to wait for now.

Have checked and seen if you can see the hardware in the hardware manager in Linux or Device Manager in Windows?

I don't think its actually possible to brick your Sansa from recovery mode. It should always be fixable unless theres some physical damage to the unit.

I've never tried it, but I think doing that basically destroys recover mode by overwriting your firmware with garbage.

Have you read the unbrick instructions? They're quite clear:

"
  • Only copy .mi4 files to the recovery partition.
"

Sounds like you'll have to use e200tool to put your firmware back together.

I have only one problem my PC dosent at all recognize my sansa. I connect it to my pc and the blue light starts and thats all, when I run in linux lsusb, then it gives:

Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046de:c019 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0c45:624f Microdia
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Logitech= my mouse
Microdia= is always there, I dont know what it is. When I unplug everything from the usb port's then its still there.
Tried manu mode, nothing. Tried recovery mode, nothing.

Propally is the player dead.

As saratoga said, I don't think it's possible to completely brick the Sansa without physical damage.

Are you sure you're in preboot mode? Turn on hold, press and hold select, and connect your Sansa, then run lsusb again.

Before I had this problem that, when I tried to delete something from it, then it showed that it was deletet, but when I disconnected my samsa from the pc and turned it on then those track were still there.
Then I found daniles e200tool help. So tried it, but I made a big mistake, I dint know what is manu mode so I but it in recovery mode and then I but the i2c.bin file on the 16mb drive and after that I dosent work anymore. I connect it to the pc , then the ring lights up and thats all.Tried to but it into manu mode, but nothing(tried lsusb and it didnt give anything).

I just bricked my old Sansa today, while prepping it for an eBay sale. Recovery mode did not work, only maintenance mode. I did get it working with the e200tool, and the lsusb command in Ubuntu did show the device.

If the lsusb command isn't showing the device for you, then the only thing I can think of is that the LOD or USB cable may be physically defective.
