Default e260 formatted from computer while in recovery mode

Hi everyone,

Sorry to bother, but I read a lot of threads advising NOT to do that, but no definitive answer on if the device can possibly be salvaged.

So yes, it did happen "inadvertedly"...

Now, I get the "Load main image failed, switch to recovery mode"
I am able to boot into recovery mode.

However, the VERSION.txt that appears on the 16mb disk appears corrupted. I believe that this is (one of) the reason (s) why the Ulitmate Fix fails. When running the .exe used to downgrade the firmware, I get an error message saying that the Version details could not be identified correctly.

I have also tried placing the .mi4 file on the recovery disk, with or without a blank sansa.fmt file, but had no success.

The sandisk tech support only suggests I do the same steps that I already did. Unfortunately, the warranty is not valid anymore.

So, are my options through?

Thanks very much for your time. I appreciate it!
