sansa express won't respond


i’ve had my sansa express 2g for a year now, working fine. a little while ago i uploaded photos onto it, and left it connected to my pc for a few days. now it won’t turn on at all, and even when i remove and re-connect it to the computer, the computer won’t recognize the usb being hooked in, and the device won’t even show the “charging” message.

my photos are really important to, me since i’m a photographer :slight_smile:

what has happened? what do i do to fix it? is there any way to retrieve my data?

thanks a lot and a happy new year!
