I bought a Sansa m260 like 1 1/2 yr ago.
I bought it via internet, and it worked great until 2 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago I left my mp3 at my grandma’s house (turned off btw). After 1 week, I recover my mp3 and tried to turn on, but nothing happened.
I tried to connect it to my PC and nothing for the first 20 attempts. After like 10 minutes connecting/disconnecting to my PC, the device was dectected. I formatted it, unplugged the USB and press the ON button for around 2 minutes and inserted a new alcaline battery on it. It worked again… I played music a while until it freezed up and stopped playing music (showing the song info). I turn off the battery and did the same thing again, and worked… now, since that day, EVERY time I need to play my music, I have to spend like 20 minutes connecting and disconnecting it on my PC until it gets “detected”.
I tried to contact the support via e-mail but didn’t get any response.
Thanks in advance (and sorry my English)
