The Sansa e260 Rhapsody could be recovered by resetting the player.
How to reset the player :

1. Turn off the player.
2. Slide the Hold/Lock
switch on top of the player so an orange color is showing.

button and connect the device to the computer.
4. A message will appear on the device display screen confirming the connection and a memory partition will be viewable in My Computer.
5. Release the REC
Step 2: Update the firmware ( updating firmware always in MSC mode, see
Step 1 )

The Sansa updater installation on the computer should be the easiest way to update firmware.
