I have now gone through three mp3 players. Returned the first two thinking it was a manufacturer error. Changed brands on the third so it must be my computer.
I am able to initally connect and download music onto the player. The problem is when I want to reconnect to change contents or just charge the player. I cannot turn the mp3 back on. I get a brief title screen but then it shuts off.
Any idea what's going on here or how I can fix my current mp3?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Computer Corrputing MP3 Players
Maybe it is because when you plug your mp3 player into the computer you can't do anything with it because with all my mp3 players when they are plugged into the computer I can't do anything with them either(one at a time of course). Read your instruction manual about plugging your mp3 player into the computer.

i think your mp3 player have its own program, file system error have all symptoms maybe in your windows system or in your mp3 player software, heres a tip: install a firmware of your mp3 player, run the scandisk or defrag your MP3 player... if the error exist try to insert your mp3 player to another computer to check if the problem is exist.
I have had the same problem. It seems the radio never turns off and keeps drawing power. Solution: before charging, go to a song, start it playing, then pause it, then turn off the sanza clip. Plug it in and it should charge up fine.
Reformat your player. Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
If you still get the same error: Reformatting through your computer usually involves plugging the player into the computer, double-clicking on My Computer, right-clicking on either the icon of the mp3 player or the generic drive letter that your computer has assigned to the player, and selecting “Format.”FAT32 is usually the correct option, but I would always consult the manufacturer/user manual first to be sure. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player. Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
