Unable to recognize but charging

I have had this sansa 2 GB for about a year and it worked perfectly. One fine day I plug it to the comp and its not recognized. I have tried all sorts of things. Tried to format in the MSC mode and tried the ‘hold it in the locked position and press the center button while connecting’ tip also. Its just not being recognized. I have tried this on various computers, Windows 7 and Ubuntu and XP, and it surely is not a drivers issue. I have also used a new USB cable, that too didn’t work.

Please Please help! 

A walkthrough of things to try, on connection issues–perhaps this will help.


Check if the data pins are an issue, as it might be the cable.  Try the controls on your Clip with it plugged in.  Do they operate?  Does the Clip say “connected” on its display?
