    I have had the Sansa e280 for a few months. I had downloaded some songs to it. I briefly saw a message that said something about running out of disk space and then the player 'went dead'. All I see is the light around the round control (circle blue light). I had to hold the on/off button for a long time to turn it off. I turned it back on but with no change. All I see is the blue light around the round control....

    Is there a way of resetting, or deleting the drive???

    My sansa was working but the battery was low so I plugged it into my computer to charge. I noticed it was off (after a few hours) so I unplugged from the USB cable to check the battary charge and it would not come on. I even held down the power button for 15-20 seconds but it still would not come on.

    I have the same problem too. However I found it works on my other computers with same OS (WindowsXP). Then I found out that the working ones having new windows media player installed. So I just upgrade my media player from 9 to 11. Since then it works on all of my machines (I have 5 PCs at home).



    Hope this help.

    My Sansa e280 just stopped responding. The screen was a light blue color and appeared "on". I wouldn't respond using the power button or any other button. My computer would not recognize it when I plugged it into the usb port. I tried holding the power button for about 15 seconds and it finally responded. It seems to work fine now.

I would suggest holding the 'power' button down for a good 15-20 seconds.

4. plug in the connector cable

if that doesnt work you will need to go to the sandisk website to update the firmware on your device..
