Default Sandisk SDMX1 512R won't complete boot anymore.


OK, this is an older MP3 player (2 or 3 years old). The SDMX1 is the little blue 512Mb device.

It was working 100% fine, until one day when I was jogging...:

  1. sharp high pitch noise hear through the phones;
  2. display "frozen". Device did not react to any commands
  3. pulled-out battery to power it off.
I waited a day or two, and tried to re-start it The hourglass appears, but the "Sandisk" logo never appears and the device doesn't finish booting.

Then I tried accessing it through the USB cable. Same symptoms, and it isn't even detected by Windows.

Contacted Sandisk support. They say it is "irrecoverable", but don't explain why or what the problem is.

Is it irrecoverable? Is the memory dead? Can it be replaced? Can it be somehow re-formatted?

Thank you,
