And, you didn't say: did you try to reset the player? Try holding the power button down (Clip+) or power slider up (original Clip) for 30 seconds or more (up to a minute or more).
Also, it's been reported that sometimes the battery needs to fully run down before the player will start up again. Sometimes just leaving the player alone for a few days, letting the power run out (even if the player is off), can accomplish this.

This is my second San Disk, and this is a constant repeatable issue. I will NEVER buy again from SanDisk. It always seems to fail when I' ve charged it and all seems cool...then I go out and I'm have way through my run...and it goes dead.
The second one same same. It may very well restart again after I leave it "useless" for a day or two...but I plan to buy something else and preach how bad these are!!

No, but it's doubtful it's a battery issue anyway. Try resetting it as suggested above.

I have a four-year-old 8 GB Clip with Rockbox on it. It has worked well over the years. Yesterday, I had it hooked to my Mac and was copying some music to it. Partway through that operation, the Mac popped open the dialog box it shows if you unplug a drive, flash drive, etc., without "software-ejecting" it first. But I hadn't touched it.
