Problem with Sansa mp3 player automatic connection in Mandriva

After an upgrade my Sansa E260 is no longer automatically recognised in Mandriva and looking at the /var/log/messages displays the error:
reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5

Run as su the following (maybe a couple of times), while the sansa is connected:
sudo rmmod ehci_hcd
sudo modprobe ehci_hcd
