Only Plays 1 second of song/podcast

    So I got my new Sansa Clip today, charged it up, loaded 2 podcasts and 1 song and when I hit play…it only plays 1 second then the counter and music stops.  I loaded the new firmware.  Same thing.  Any ideas?

Edit:  OK, got it to play about 90 seconds of a podcast.  I think I hit the center button and a screen came up that was blank accept for a broken line accross the bottom of the screen.  I can back out but it’s still frozen at 1 second.  I hit play and the pause icon comes up.  I keep toggling pause but nothing.

Edit 2: FM Radio works great.  But I bought it for MLB.com podcasts.  I erased 2 large podcasts andall of the preloaded music and left 1 song.  still won’t play song

Could it be the bitrate of the podcasts?  I think the specs for the Clip specify a low end of 64 kbps, although some people have reported no issue with lower bitrates.  And is the file type supported by the Clip?
