I just bought the Sansa e130 and I'm noticing the battery is dying awfully fast. I'm looking at maybe a few hours of constant listening and it's gone. Now, the funny thing is, it just died, I let it sit for about 5 minutes and turned it back on and it's played three or four tracks without dying. Another thing is, I rip tracks at 192kbps, would that drain the battery that fast? It seems like it's going through them way too quick.

Your battery is draining too fast . There is some problem with the internal battery .Since it is brand new I will prefer you to go to apple service center to get your itouch repaired . Some products will be having these kind of problem . Apple will replace it .
Hope this helps .
I read this elsewere on this site you just rmove the battery and leave it out for 5 min at aleast then while holding down the on button but a fresh battery back in and it should power uplike normal again. Worked like a charm for me
ok, for everyone with e130 "keeps getting an I/O device error, only language screen, than something about 4MB memory..." problem, I just spend six hours of my life trying to solve it and fix my dad's e130 and I succeeded ;)
so, step by step, how EXACTLY I did it:
0) my system was windowsXP SP2
1) remove the battery 2) keep holding the menu button and plug in the usb, keep it for a few seconds more, untill the system will tell you it found a stmp3500 and want to install the hardware 3) allow it to reach windows update for that matter and install the drivers 4) now you have new device that is called "Player Recovery Device Class" you can check it in device manager (Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager) 5) and now is time for flushing new firmware...I managed to find two versions of firmware for e130:
6) I tried both of them in many different combinations and finally one and one only miraculously worked for me and that was the one when
I HAD THE SD CARD IN THE MP3PLAYER, THE PLAYER WAS RECOGNIZED AS "Player Recovery Device Class" BY THE WINXP AND I STARTED EUROPIAN sansa-2.0.0.01e.exe !
PS: i don't think that there's a big difference between europian and american version of firmware I mention it just to be accurate about the situation. and big thanks to anonymous guy who turned me to right direction with stmp3500. hope that help to others ;]
Does the battery need replacing? My screen is cracked and it appears the battery discharges quicker than normally.
For now, I check the voltage on my rechargeables before installing them so that I know they are good.
Try putting one song on to see if that will play?
ok i had the same problem and i was searching what to do and found that you have to take out the battery and leave it for 5 minuites WITHOUT a battery in it and then put in the battery and it should work
I'm having the same problem! I've had my Sansa e130 for exactly one year today. I loaded new music on it last night and when I tried to turn it on, it said "searching internal memory for new music." I left it on and this morning it wouldn't come back on with new batteries or even when hooked to a computer! I sent an e-mail to the company for help since there is no reset button. I haven't heard anything yet. I suggest you contact SanDisk too. They may have a problem. And I can't believe someone actually suggested as a solution to put a new battery in it or hook it up! No duh! We're looking for real help here, not the obvious things to try.
