Thank you! That was a very good response and actually gives me something to work with. I will give it a shot with knoppix later tonight, then maybe windows if I am still having problems. I will post again later tonight with the results.

Well Windows was useless and Knoppix had the same result. I did notice some interesting stuff though.

Before I run the script I see the device as this via 'lsusb'
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 0b70:0003 PortalPlayer, Inc.

'lsusb' gives the following after the script:
Bus 005 Device 008: ID 6666:e200 Prototype product Vendor ID

There is also a change in the device when I run cat /proc/bus/usb/device

Before script:
Bus=02 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#= 11 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.10 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=0b70 ProdID=0003 Rev= 0.00
S: Manufacturer=PortalPlayer
S: Product=Tango Digital Media Platform
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=e0 MxPwr= 32mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=01(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms

After script:
T: Bus=05 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=02 Cnt=01 Dev#= 8 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=6666 ProdID=e200 Rev= 0.01
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr=500mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 0 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)

I feel I'm making progress but that could be an illusion. There is still no mounting of the 16mb partition.

^^ Check dmesg to see if there are any changes. It should show up as sdb or something after you run e200tool. You need to mount it yourself
ie.
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt

Given this stuff:
P: Vendor=0b70 ProdID=0003 Rev= 0.00
S: Manufacturer=PortalPlayer

You're seeing it in pre-boot mode (meaning whatever happened to this unit, it got smacked pretty good.) The normal instructions are for using e200tool in manufacturing mode.

http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/e200tool.html

This discusses flashing a new I2C ROM, but you first need to get the recovery partition mounted up... are you SURE it that Knoppix didn't automount a new drive?

Also, I have two e260s and two e250s that are all functional, so if it turns out that you do need to use I2C.bin and the one on that site doesn't work, we can compare players and see if maybe one of mine has what it takes to bring yours back from the grave.

Neither Knoppix or Ubuntu have been able to mount it. Both see it the same way.

'dmesg'
[17185705.428000] usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 29
[17185705.596000] usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

It's funny, I was able to get the device to do something (post #42) but my Laptop battery died) and now I can't get the device to go back to that point with the script. It just writes like before and nothing happens.

I understand that at this point I have to do the I2C fix but have no idea how to go about this if I can not get the drive mounted.

I think we'll have to wait for e200tool to support I2C, rather than just hoping that it can put the player in Recovery Mode and let the player update the I2C rom itself, which is what we currently do with it.

I guess I'll wait until the tool matures a bit more before I give it another go.

Thank you everyone for the help!

Im new to this whole recovery mode thingy but i have been reading some of the posts that people have written, i have tried what has been suggested, yet when i plug my sansa e250 in to the usb port, it is recognized but only as a usb device. this means it is also unable to be detected by the e200tool and the libusb software. any advice would be great

actually, USB device IS what e200tool looks for. Try again in Knoppix; I got it working there, but NOT in Windows.

Read the instructions on how to boot it and how to install software. There's documentation all over the place.

Once you get it up, install libusb, then compile e200tool. You'll need to develop a basic understanding of linux, but here's a hint - extract the e200tool into a folder (you can do this on a flash drive before even switching over to Knoppix) and on the command line, type 'make' while in the directory where you extracted e200tool. Once it's compiled, you can run it with ./e200tool (and then whatever command line arguments you need.)

The rest, you need to learn by reading documentation, because I can't spell it out for you or hold your hand.

If this is too much, RMA the player.

Is there a glossary for the terms used in this thread to be found somewhere? I just started reading and I'd like to catch up quickly. Thanks.

The front page instructions are out of date and will not work anymore. See posts in this thread regarding using a bootable linux cd to fix your e200.

Which terms are you confused about?

There isn't a glossary per se, but you can always use Google. Google knows all.

Hi, I'm having trouble with my Sansa e200. I tried to edit the theme, and when I put the theme edit into the MP3 it said safe to remove USB. Then it Read the ROM and Loaded the ROM. It sat like that for an hour so I removed the battery. When I tried to turn it back on, it has a black screen and blue wheel. I've tried all I could figure out. I loaded the e200tool, got libUSB_Win32 (though it doesn't show the info for my Sansa) and downloaded Knoppix. I don't know how to boot Knoppix, for I am a newb. In e200tool I load as "C:\Documents and Settings\Benton.BENTON-UHOGYCL0\Desktop\e200tool-src\e200tool.exe" recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
e200tool v0.0.6-alpha <c> by MrH 2006, 2007
