Menu of languages, won't let me play songs, shut down

Hi, this might be a second post but i am really desperate. every time i turn on my mp3 player it takes forever and then it goes to the menu of languages, having had this for about a year, i already set that componet, so after clicking on english, it goes to the menu like normal, go to music, click on songs, find the song i want, click on it, then it shuts down and starts over again, i tried going into different things but every time you try to change something it shuts off and restarts, i tried running the batterey down no luck , i tried deleting all the songs, no luck, my usb and windows media won't even recognize it along with my computer in general, im afraid that my sansa is broken, but the weird thing is i didn't drop it, i haven't downloaded songs in a while i didn't really do anyhting with it and up untill this promblem, i thought it was running great, if you have any idea please post, i need soo much HELP!!!! thank you in advance

Try formatting the player in MSC mode (SETTINGS>USB MODE>MSC) in the My Computer window. Then after it has been formatted try updating the firmware of the player. Notify me if you want steps on how to update the firmware of the player. :D

My apple ipod classic froze half way through a song welst i connected it to a computer now its froze on the song and it wont charge

Press both the center button and menu until the circular spinning icon shows that the thing is rebooting.  Also, try holding play for 5-10 seconds to shut the thing off.  Then hold play for 5-10 seconds to turn it back on.

Mp3 plays few seconds of song.

Do you mean it plays a few seconds then skips onto the next song? If that is the case then most likely you have "Intro" play set which only plays a few seconds as a introduction then skips to the next time.

To fix this, during music playback, press the [menu] button, then there should be an option there to change it from "Intro" to "NORMAL" instead.

Hope that helps.
