Try this thread on the sansa forum:

It shows pictures of the model number on the case, but in the case of
refurbs, it may not have the original cover.

The most reliable way without taking the case apart is to check the
firmware version:
3.something is a v2.
1.something is a v1 or a Rhapsody.

The e200 has been discontinued for over a year (maybe 2?), so that's
why you aren't likely to find them in retail stores. Look for places
that sell overstocks or refurbished stuff. Biglots,, are some possibilities, or ebay.

There's also the c200 series that as far as I know differs mainly in
the screen, so same V1 vs V2 issues, but you may find that model
