OK, I had some success, but I'm not sure how I keep going.
After I run the e200tool-mac, the player screen lights up with the
SanDisk startup screen, then it says:
Welcome to recovery mode
USB cable connected
Enter USB2.0 MSD mode
The device does not show up anywhere on the desktop (only in disk
tools, which does not allow any copying TO a drive...except for the
(Can you even copy files to the device when lock is still on??)
When I unplug the USB cable, the player displays:
Resetting the system
...which sounds excellent, but then nothing happens. The screen shuts
off, and the blue ring stays lit. When I turn the player off (holding
power for 15 seconds) then turn it on again (with lock still on), just
the blue ring lights up all over again.
Seems like I need to get the device to show up on the desktop to copy
the .mi4 file, right? (Or must this be done from terminal? I don't
know how that's done.)
A little confuzzled....
