Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - Slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted. Best of Luck.

Yeah this worked amazing i've only had mine for about a month and i thought i would have to get a new one already...although you have to format it (delete all files) it was better to do that than pay for a new one or pay to get it fixed
thanks alot mixmaster and computerrep!

Yes you missed the step, you have to download and run the program once it says "Enter USB2.0 MSD mode"

How long should this take? Minutes? Hours? Mine says:
Welcome to recovery mode
USB Cable connected
Enter USB2.0 MSD mode
Have I missed a step?
