I have a problem with my sansa e260 v1. I was copying some mp3s on it, and when I disconnected it from my computer, the device froze when completing the “Refresh Database” function. The screen will either go blank, or display some colour lines.
I took the battery out, as this was the only way to turn off the device, but when I turned it on, the same thing happened. As soon as I connect the player to my computer, it tries to “Refresh Database”, and freezes when it’s about 70% complete.
I am able to get to boot to recovery mode, but I get a message that says “enter USB2.0 MSD mode”. I can’t change the “mode” because the player will freeze as soon as it tries to “Refresh Database”.
Neutron Bob provided a solution to someone with a similar problem, but when I tried it, it didn’t work. I copied the files linked in the post onto the “16MB-FORMAT” recovery partition, but this does not remedy the problem.
Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated! My sansa e260 has worked great until now.
