I had the same problem with the "Crap... Null waveform..." on the sansa280. After several attempts, I tried it using different untar-tools. Using WinZIP or WinRAR brought somehow corrupted files out of the archive. You can try unpacking them at the command line using:

bunzip2 patchset.tbz2
tar xvf patchset.tar

These were the programs bringing success...:

lgfb, thanks a ton!!!  That did the trick.  I used 7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) instead of bzip, but it still worked.  Thanks again!

Yo, i rockboxed my Sansa e260v1 and everytime i open a midi, it says no instrument found, i have no patchset but i found out there is one saved in /.rockbox/timidity/instruments/
But well, cant use it anyways, i am not feeling in the mood to do anymore, tried copy pasting this set, renaming the folder but it just got annoying, do i need to remap every patch in the .cfg? Would be lots of work =/

__builtin:
That patchset is shipped with Duke Nukem 3D and is not meant to be used for midiplayer. You could always experiment, though...

The wiki page has a patchset linked: https://www.rockbox.org/wiki/PluginMidiPlay
Development versions of Rockbox Utility can also install the patchset, but you'd need a development version (there are binaries of that around, see https://forums.rockbox.org/index.php/topic,53588.0.html)
