    I am having the same issue. When my archos 104 is plugged in to a usb it will only flash the boot screen of the hour glass.

    I would like to know it there is anything I can do to correct the issue.

    I received my e280 on March 3, 2008. After charging and loading it with songs I was able to use it that night with my adapter in my car. I was also able to use it the next morning. After turning off my car for 10 minutes, I came back to find that it would not turn on with or without the cord. I tried plugging into my computer as well and it will not turn on.

    After a few months of not being used, my DJ Ditty would not turn on. I recharged it, both with the computer based USB port ( it didn't turn on then either and it usually does) and again with the AC plug in adapter I have. It did turn on while plugged into the AC adapter. I could listen to songs while plugged into the wall. Take it out, won't turn on.

    I've had my MP3 player about 6 months but with minimal usage. One day it just didn't turn on. I tried plugging it in the computer but nothing happens. Now I can't load/delete music or listen to anything

    my e260 is doing the EXACT SAME THING! over 600 songs... gone. and I can't turn it on at ALL! and I'm getting pissed...

    This is the second e260 I've owned. The first one was permanently frozen and I sent it back. Sandisk sent me a new one and I treated it very carefully, however, in July I accidentally let it die. When I went to charge it, my computer did not recognize the device and it refuses to charge or turn on when connected to the computer. My brother has the same device and never had the first problem with his first e260.

    Please, I need to know how to fix my e260 and learn how to avoid messing it up. I appreciate any and all advice. Thank you.

For the Sansa e260:

Hold the power/menu button down for at LEAST 20 seconds, then let it go. Connect it to your computer, and it shoud begin to respond. This happened because there was a power glich in the system, and reseting the Mp3 player is what was needed. :) Hopw this helps all of you e260 users! :)
