I connected my sansa e280 into my computer to copy some music files and the computer said it did not recognize my player. I unplugged it from the computer and then I plugged it back in. The Sansa e280 then went to a blank backlit screen and it will not respond.

I have a e250 and it works great with my laptop which is running window vista. One thing i do remember missing with is the usb setting on the mp3 player. Maybe you can try switching between the usb opinions to see if that will fix your problem. the usb setting screen is under "setting", "usb mode".
It is probably because you have folders inside of folders inside of folder... i just had the same problem and copied all the songs in a folder into the main folder IE dont do this sansa>music>artist>album>music file do it like this sansa>music>artist>file
