I bought a Sansa Clip 2gb recently and for a few weeks it was working perfectly. Then, one day, I simply couldn’t turn it on.
I did not get it wet, put weird files on it or anything like that. I tried to turn it on, like any other day, and nothing happened.
I thought the battery was depleted, so I plugged it into the usb and the computer (I have Vista home premium) gave me a window “You need to format the disk in drive H: before you can use it”
I clicked cancel, went to My Computer to open it, and couldn’t (got the message “Please insert disk into Removable disk H” (it’s recognized like a removable disk)
I plug it out, plug it in again and try formating it. I get to the format window, click on format and half a second later I get a message “Windows was unable to complete the format”
I go to this forum, try all the “put on Hold, press the middle button while plugging in” advice and nothing happens. The player is still not recognized, I cannot turn it on or access the drive.
Again, I did not get it wet, experiment with putting files on it or anything. It simply stopped working.
So please, if somebody could give me an answer, (which isn’t “have it replaced”, because I’ll do that eventually) I would be very grateful
