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

Hello,

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,

Mickets

Unhappy Problem...

it's 2 or 3 years old.

it's a DAP (Digital Audio Player)

It's broke.

Go get a Sansa Express for 60 or 70 Dollars and double your memory.

Sorry about the luck, but its dead. No way to recover it. Put it in a shoe box and say your last wishes before you chuck it in a dumpster.

RIP Sansa...

Yes, it's dead. But hope dies last.

I did get a Sansa Express. So far, so good. Better than I thought. Except that I can't erase recorded files straight from the device. Or does it have the A->B button (to repeat a portion of the file).

Mickets,

The A-B button has been pretty much eliminated in their (SanDisk's) modern players. The A-B button was pretty much used as an "options" button. The options button pretty much looks like this...

(Hey I think it looks pretty good)

The only downside to the Express is that it doesn't support bookmarking.

Since it supports .aa files (audible) for audio books (.aa 3 and 4 btw) I really think it should support bookmarking.

Then again, how many books can you get on 1 GB? Granted it does have the MicroSD expansion slot.

I know the Harry Potter books I'm torrenting right now are like 4.7 GB for all the books.
