Summary: I like and have used SanDisk MP3 players for about 10 years. Have always been able to copy my playlists from Windows Media Player straight to the mp3 player until I purchased this one. To copy playlists is a long and convoluted process, will never buy one of these again.
Summary: Doesn't work well at all. The charging port is intermittently working. The unit will not pause intermittently requiring me to power it down in order to get the pause function back. Some times it won't turn on at all for as much as an hour.
Up until today it worked pretty well. Now - not so much

Summary: Purchased this on October 2014. Up until today it worked pretty well. Now - not so much. After charging the unit, I disconnected the charging cord and the player is "stuck" with the picture of the USB charger. I can't get it to clear, turn off or play music.
Summary: I bought this on a Black Friday special since my beloved Clip + battery is wearing out. I can confirm the 25 hour battery, but it was unusable out of the box until I downloaded the update from the sansa website. This now means there is a "lock" function.
A Disappointing Device and a Step Backwards from Previous Versions

Summary: I wish I could say that I liked this device. I had a previous version of the Clip for several years that eventually stopped holding a charge, so I figured I would get a new one. I liked the old one quite a bit. The interface is terribly slow.
Summary: It is ponderously difficult to load music onto this device from Rhapsody, which is the main reason I purchased it. I received a refurbished one, so perhaps there's still something not quite right on this particular one, but I've worked with it for days to put basic playlists onto it.
Summary: It seemed like a nice mp3 player, and I most likely was just given a dud. Any advice as to what I should do would be appreciated.
Pros: Supports many audio formats Small Decent quality sound Battery life
Cons: Everything seemed fine, but then it suddenly cuts off when I was walking to school and now it won't turn back on. The battery had about 75% life when it turned off, and it won't turn on even if I plug it into my computer. It's just dead.
