I read about the chip problem and it is definitely not that. I checked it and pushed on it and still the problem persists. My daughter did format the recovery partition and immediately after that it stopped working. I will read your instructions and give it another shot. I just assumed that the player would show up as a usb device after starting in manufacturing mode because the instructions said it would.

I am surprised someone has not made a step by step how-to YouTube video. It helps when you can see things being done.

So I have done what you have written and this is what I am facing now. As you can see everything is in the download folder. Also, no internet connection is needed for this to work I hope because I have not installed the wireless drivers on Ubuntu as it is a pain in the you know what and I am unable to connect to ethernet.

OK, I think I know what's going on. That version of e200tool is built as a 32 bit shared binary, and your ubuntu setup is probably a 64 bit setup without all the compatibility stuff.
If that's the case, the version at http://www.hostname.be/e200tool should work, so try that one instead

Apart from needing the files I linked to in my previous post (and the new e200tool linked from here), you don't need anything from the outside world, so you don't need a network connection for any of this.

I really appreciate you hanging in there with me gevaerts, I am getting a little further with each try but now I have another issue. Everything goes smoothly until the very end. I copy the 2 files to the 16mb disk and they show up in that disk however when I eject the disk and restart the player I still have a black screen. While the disk was showing in Ubuntu I did have the "welcome to recovery mode" showing on the player.

Am I not unmounting the 16mb disk properly or is there another step I need to do. This is a more clear and uncropped shot of what is going on because of the size restrictions on attachments. http://imgur.com/a/ibVpH The attachment is just of the terminal but the link shows the copied files.

canuckken:
I am a happy guy. I got it working thanks to your instructions gevaerts. The one thing I needed to do that I had neglected was to make the sansa.fmt file and place it on the disk. Once I did that everything worked. Again thank you very much for your help. I could not have done this without you. Cheers :)
