Wow. I'm glad I found this thread. I was thinking I'd have to send this back after having my Fuze less than a week. (And I leave for Thanksgiving vacation tomorrow.)
I've been lurking for a few days reading as much about my new 8GB Sansa Fuze and just ran into this problem today.
I was doing nothing more than just listening to a song and all of a sudden it dies. In the middle of a song. And it wouldn't come back on trying to turn it on, nor connecting it to a computer.
(It has an 8GB SD card in the slot, but the card is brand new--and I just checked. It's not dead. Works perfectly)
Held the power button for what felt like forever and it popped back on and is acting like nothing happened.
What in the world would have caused it to just up and go off. Anyone have any ideas?

**bleep**! I was just flipping the out thinking it was shot. I typed in a search engine "my sansa dies" and I got this thread. I tried the 15 second hold and it worked. I was ready to smash this. Sorry for swearing so much but I went from extremely angry to relief and excited in a hot minute.
Please take some time to read the forum rules and guidelines. Profanity is not allowed. this will serve as your only warning.

Thanks alot this saved me a long drive to FutureShop. Mine wouldn't start up after i loaded it with music. It had 1.4 gig of free space left on it , played a few tunes, then shut down . Any idea why it shut down though ?
Again thanks for the help
