    had the same problem. Except if I plug it into the charger it works but as an icon in the upper right that shows it's plugged in but doesn't have a battery in. So I don't know if it's something with the battery or not. I've had a lot of trouble. Also it only plays music out of the left side of the headphones/speakers.

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

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.
