Ok, it stopped working as a player, still functional as a jumpdrive. I see that reinstalling the software and formatting it seems to work. Problem is is that I can't find the software anymore, anyone know where to get it?

When connecting the player to a computer with XP it should be detected directly in Windows Media Player when:
1. The player is not locked.
2. Media Player 9 or 10 is installed and updated.
If the player does not respond or seems to be "frozen", the data on the
device might be corrupt. Then the player should be reformatted: this will erase all data ! How to format, see step 1 and 2: STEP 1 - Connect the device to the computer 1. Remove the battery from the player’s battery compartment. 2. Put the hold/lock switch to lock. 3. Plug in your device to the computer.
STEP 2 - Format the device 1. Double-click My Computer. 2. Right-click on the player, which might show up as a Removable Drive, select Format. 3. Click Start. 4. Click OK when a "Format Complete" dialog appears. 5. Click Close.
There are also updates/reinstallations for the player's firmware
when needed.Press play/pause/up button and repeat/ab/down button
to see the software version; model number, storage capacity.
I just got a sansa c250 mp3 player. I loaded mp3 music onto it and it played but I couldn't control it. The buttons wouldn't respond. It would always just start from the first track but I couldn't stop it without turning it off. So I tried to format and reinstall the music but I lost the basic files/software initially on it, Can I get the software anywhere. Do I have a bad unit? The buttons don't seem to work. Thanks!
