A couple weeks ago I bought a Sansa SanDisk Clip on eBay. The day I got it, my hard drive crashed. Then I discovered that my external hard drive, where I had backed up all my information, had also failed at the worst possible time.
I am definitely not in the mood to deal with anything broken technological crap.
Now, this thing was able to charge when I got it. I didn’t had any music, as I’d lost it all in the crash, but I did plug it in and listen to the radio a little bit. It charged, lightning bolt etc.
Now when I plug it in (NOW THAT I HAVE MUSIC) it does its little SANDISK screen, says “Connected” for a moment, and then does the SANDISK screen again. Repeat ad infinitum. It’s not charged so I can’t reset it because it dies on me before then. It’s not showing up on my computer as an external hard drive (I’m on a MacBook), so I can’t update the firmware. It’s not charging, either, in case you hadn’t picked up on that.
It was working. Now it’s not. Please tell me there is a way to fix this thing easily. I do not have the energy to fight with electronics anymore. I just want to listen to music at the gym.
