I have 4 Sandisk Sansa players bought over the the last decade, each a slightly different model/version and all long beyond warranty. All functioned, set up, and played normally for at least some period. My first and last units have never had any issues. The other two however got into modes in which they froze up becoming non-functional to any button pushing though the lcd screen was stuck in the "writing..." mode. Both failed so during USB connection to my Windows computers as I was preparing to load new songs.

This is my exact problem, although I really do not understand your technical explaination. Can you tell me how do do the power drain thing and why SanDisk will not give a satisfactory answer to this obviously common problem. I am so mad they will not do a live chat for an MP3 player that retails for close to $80!! I have searched the internet and so one seems to be able to solve this issue.

Has anyone been able to help you with this? I have the same problem. The player turns on but keeps trying to write. I can turn it on and off, but my computer doesn't recognize it and I can't get it off "writing".
