OK as Rabgiliszta mentioned, i experience the problem when i plug my sansa via the usb to my laptop. a windows pops up saying that i need to format it. if i unplug the device and try to turn it on, it won’t. So for example it will always turn on if there is no interaction with a computer. Now this really limits the possible things that may cause this issue. What is the proper way to format a sansa clip+ ? That’s why you need to reset the sansa I think. Because when you plug it in your pc it sends some data saying that the device needs format and that’s why it won’t turn on. Hope this makes sense, but I am 99% sure it has to do with the interaction with a computer.
I read on this forum that if you format via Windows it screws the player. Is this for real? I am so confused whether to RMA it or not.
