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.
Note: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, file. e.g. "sudo ./e200tool recover c240erase.bin" or "sudo ./e200tool recover c250erase.bin"
sudo ./e200tool recover c240erase.bin
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)
