Default Can't boot into original firmware

I have the e250 and successfully installed Rockbox. Everything was working fine, except I was getting sick of my Sansa not consistently mounting on my Mac when connecting the USB cable.

After some research, I found that downgrading the Sansa firmware to version 1.01.11 will allow the e250 to mount properly every time it's connected. I successfully downgraded, but now Rockbox wouldn't boot anymore.

I reinstalled the Rockbox bootloader and was again able to boot into Rockbox, but now when I attempt to boot into the Sansa firmware, I get an error saying: "can't load from partition bad checksum...etc.".

So now I can boot up into Rockbox, but I can't boot into the original firmware or connect the e250 to my Mac.

I tried booting into recovery mode but the 16mb disk doesn't show up on my Mac. I can see it using DiskUtility, but I can't get it to mount.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
