Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode:
1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.
Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):
Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop":
Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the player to keep resetting.
When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch
Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. If not, try to repeat steps 1-4 again.
I hope this helps.

Link to the English manual:
On page 30-31 it explains how to RESET the unit to the factory defaults. I believe that should clear your DB error. let me know, thanks.

SOURCE: Getting a message that says
Plug the USB cable into your Fuze, but don't connect the other end to your PC yet.
Switch the HOLD switch on (Power button slider down). Press and hold the |<< button while at the same time plugging the USB cable.
You should see your Fuze show up in Windows Explorer (run "My Computer" and you should see it there). Right-click on your Fuze and select Format. Note that this will erase all media on your Fuze, you should have a backup of your media on your PC.
Once the Windows Format is done, go to the Settings menu, then System Settings, then select Format. Select Yes to start formatting.
