I try holding the Off button thing for 15-20 seconds, but It just turns off. I try turning it on again, just does the same thing. Please help!

No no ive solved the problem the only thing u have to do is to plug the sansa with the hold button in orange while you press the rec button this will turn the sansa into recovery mode, then just create a new text document and rename it to sansa.fmt NOTE: this will format your device...

then download the latest firmware for your player and unzip the contents into the player NOTE: DO NOT PUT ANY OTHER KIND OF FILE IN THE PLAYER WHILE ITS IN RECOVERY MODE AND NEVER TRY TO FORMAT IT USIG WINDOWS THIS WILL COMLPETELY RUIN YOUR PLAYER..

ok you should have 4 files in the player right now ona that says version.txt
sansa.fmt
BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
PP5022.mi4

the last two are the firmware files, you can download the latest firmware from sandisk webpage...

finally safe dismount your sansa and it will start the format process and the firmware installation then your sansa should display the language selection screen and all will b solved (it worked for me XD ) so try it...

Try unscrewing the back and taking the battery out for a minute and replace and see if that helps.

My iPod touch keeps playing the same song over all the time i cant get it to play an album. every time i put an album on it just plays the first song over and over .My iPod touch is an 8GB.Apple


it may be that you have the repeat option turned on and dont know it. try going into options or where ever the repeat option is located and switch it off. you also might want to try and select a different song in the album to see if the repeat is on. hope this helps

If your subscribtion to rapsody (or best buy, whatever they call it) digital music store ran out it will do that to any song you got from the store until you renew your subscription. Try putting a song on there that you own (you didn't download from rapsody) and it should play. I wouldn't bother renewing the subscription though, the store has a poor library (I couldnt' even find don't worry, be happy). Just download your songs from limewire
