Default Sansa Clip+ Frozen

EDIT: Nevermind, taking the card out seems to make it happy.

Okay, so I just got my sansa clip+ 8GB and was syncing music to it in msc mode. I was putting some files on the microsdhc card when it said I didn't have permission to create the file. So I stopped and it kind of froze, so in the end I unplugged it as usb things usually don't mind that. However this one did. It shut off and wouldn't turn on, then after a few plug ins it managed to turn on the the screen with the blue flower thing and has been sitting there for a good 30 mins. What can/should I do? is the a button to reset it or something? I am really lost here and the computer isn't recognizing it. I couldn't find a way to search for this issue, so sorry if it has been asked about before.

You could have also used the reset button, on another note make sure that it's in msc vs auto-detect ...

Also formating the card is good so that it functions better with it. But you will have to reload tunes as format will erase all.

I formatted the card after putting it into the player. I wasn't sure what the proper allocation unit size was though. Right now I am having issues with my 8GB card and getting music onto it. Once I get around 35-37 songs on the card it has issues. If I put them in the root, it gets to 37 and then says I don't have permission to create the file. I looked at the root folders and decided to put them in the MSC folder. With this is stopped copying around 35 files in or so, saying that the player had disconnected or something even though it clearly thought it was still connected. Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this issue? Should I just create a music folder? I finally got the thing to reconnect again and now it added 1 or 2 more files, then froze. I know this card works fine, I had tons of music on it when I kept it in my phone. It was nearly full. Does anyone have any ideas on this? It is really annoying to have to disconnect, have the thing freeze, and keep resetting it. Also where is the reset key? I just keep holding the power button for like 10-15 seconds to shut it off and sometimes when necessary to turn it back on. Thanks for the help, this little thing just seems really glitchy/slow/annoying considering that it isn't one of those ever annoying iPods.

Okay, I originally formatted on the old firmware, the new firmware makes the formatting far simpler and faster, and now the problem seems to have alleviated itself.
