my sansa m250 makes it to the m250 loading screen then takes forever to get to the menu

my sansa m250 has firmware v.3.2.8. and when it reaches the sansa m250 loading screen it takes about 5-10 minutes to initialize. can someone give me a solution or a link to a solution for this problem? it worked fine until the day before i decided to upgrade to a fuze 2gb. i still want this one to work as backup and for it AB feature

Did you put some new songs on it just before this behavior started? It might be having trouble reading the ID3 tags or 1 or more of the new files could be corrupted, slowing down the initialization process.
