My Sansa player suddenly pause

Need help, I got my 4GB sansa clip+ two weeks ago, now the player suddenly pause while playing songs on microSD with shuffle.

 I tryed reset to factory settings and even formatting the player, still pausing randomly

It would help to know the source, format and length of the files causing the issue.

Additionally, these songs were playing with no problems few days ago, is this correct? have you dropped this player by any chance?

You might also try manually reapplying the latest firmware, in case there was a software glitch–see the firmware upgrade sticky thread at the top of the forum.
