Sansa C200 Erase
This page describes a Linux- and Mac-only method for completely erasing the C200's disk. This is useful when the recovery instructions described on SansaE200Unbrick
fail to recover your device.
Following these instructions will erase all data on your device . %W%
- Put your C200 in manufacturing mode (the same mode used with e200tool) and then run e200tool with the correct .bin file, e.g. "sudo ./e200tool recover c240erase.bin" or "sudo ./e200tool recover c250erase.bin"
- This uploads and runs some code on your C200. This can take 45 minutes or more. You should see progress information on the screen.
- When the erase is complete, it will prompt you to press a button to shutdown. Do as you're told. You may need to release hold first.
- In the original firmware, reformat the flash (Format is in the Settings menu)
