My sansa connect has had trouble in the past with connecting to my laptop. Several weeks ago i learned that if I completly shut the unit down an let it reload its defaults it would work. Tonight I tried to do this and the connect froze. Is shows a blank screen with the word SanDisk in the center the blue circle around the wheel is lit up but thats it what can I do? Is this common? Also I dont know if it matters but I just added a microSD card.
1 Try and see if it boots with the SD card removed.
2 Do you have the latest firmware? It is required for SDHC expansion memory. The latest firmware is 18.104.22.16837r. To see which version you have go to Settings>Info>Software Versions. If you need a firmware upgrade, establish a WiFi connection, and it will download and install in 20-30 minutes.
3 You may need to run the Recovery Tool. Get it here:

That is great recommendations.
Also, If it is completely hung you can hold the power button for 30 seconds. It will try a restart.
