    When connected to PC charges, screen lights up, can be seen in Explorer & stuff can be dragged to it. Says "Ok to disconnect" but will NOT turn on after disconnecting it, black screen. Tried removing battery & resetting through the little hole on the side to no avail! I guess I now have a bulky 1gb flash drive...

Check your battery. Make sure it's installed in the correct direction and that the very small tab is opposite the USB and headphone jacks. Be sure the battery contacts (all 3) are making contact with the power tabs. You might want to use a small tool and pry the contacts out slightly.

If you're getting power and connection with a PC, but not when disconnected, then it's sounding like a battery issue.

For Sakuhime, the player might need to be re-formatted to FAT-32 with your PC. However, if your firmware has been damaged, that's a bigger problem. If the unit is out of warranty, its a brick. What operating system you are using on your computer is also important. This unit is best supported when using Win XP with SP2. It will work with other OS's (like OSX 10.0.0 and up), but XP is the preferred choice.

The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here what to do...
1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.
