SOURCE: MP3 Player won't work
I had the same problem too. What worked for me was rolling the battery while it is in the battery compartment and holding the play button at the same time.

Yeap , time to replace the battery. after a certain amount of used hours all MP3 players will start to do this until it no longer has power.

I do not know about your warranty - call or e-mail support. If your computer no longer recognizes it it is dead - sorry.
