I got a Sansa e280 off of eBay the other day, and for several reasons, I
wanted to start it off in it's prestine state, so I downloaded a utility off
of the web called Sansa Updater. This reformated the Sansa e280 and restores
the original Sansa file system. Once I got it in it's prestine, straight
from Sansa state, I installed Rockbox. You may want to try this. It may
resolve your problems.

I found this utility off of the web without too much trouble. Unfortunately,
I don't have the URL anymore and the Sansa Updater utility itself doesn't
have a link to the web, but like I said, I found it without too much
