Subject: e200tool Failure

e200tool Failure

From: Craig Milo Rogers <>
Date: Wed, 19 Sep 2007 18:16:23 -0700

        I recently purchased a Sansa e280, which may or may not be an
e280R. Since it said "Rhapsody" on the back, I assumed it's an e200R
and attempted to follow the e200R instructions on the Rockbox twiki

        e200tool failed. Here's a copy of the messages:

# ./e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
e200tool v0.2.3-alpha (c) by MrH 2006, 2007
Searching for device 0781:0720 ... found!
Initializing USB stub (4780 bytes) ... done!
Writing 'BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom' to address 0x10600000
Searching for device 6666:e200 ... 9 8 found!
Write at 0x106060b7
Control message (-71, Protocol error)

        Note that several other "Write at" messages appeared on the screen
and were overwritten, prior to the failure.

        Error -71 does not appear on SansaE200RBootloaderPatching page
or the troubleshooting page.

        I could power cycle the e280 at this point, and it wasn't bricked,
but of course it's not running Rockbox yet, either.
