Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

My computer does't recognize the mp3's file anymore

Try using a can of air and blowing into the plug in on the player. If that doesn't work then take it to the store and see if they can help.

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -

I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.

this just seems to happen. it could be the USB, but most of the time it just seems to be one of the problems sandisks get.
sometimes mine doesn't turn on, just leave it for a minute and come back.
