My sansa mp3 player just broke for absolutely no reason. It was working yesterday and there was half battery power and I tried turning it on lastnight but it said there was no battery power left. So then I tried charging it but it went all screwed up. There's no sound other than a bunch of messed up beep sounds. So now I'm deciding whether I should get an iPod.

Make the best of the situation and pretend you're in a techno-club.

Every once in a while, there's no sound when I turn my sansa on. I turn it off and back on and magically, the sound comes back. Don't know if it's the mp3 player or the headphones, though.

I reset it twice and it didn't do anything. And the warranty won't work because there's a crack in the screen (it was there way before it broke)

Don't get Sandisk products.
Me, my sister, and my cousin all had MP3 players and ALL of them broke within weeks of getting them.

I've had mine for a few months, but now it's just broken for no reason. So I'm definintely not getting another sansa.

ipods are great,
i have an 80 gb ipod classic.
if you decide to get one, look refurbished ones @ the apple store online, they're like $100 cheaper in some cases. all refurbished means is someone got it, and opened the box, then they didn't want it so they sent it back, and now the apple store put it in a new box.

Well if you were rough enough with it to crack the screen then I guess it did break.

Damn people, when will everyone realize that an MP3 is not a tank?

EDIT: I have a Sansa Clip 2GB and it works just as well as it did the day I bought it. Over 6 months ago. It looks brand new and I use it every single day for one task or another.

You can't just toss them around, they're not indestructible, but they'll hold up if you treat them nicely.

If you get a sandisk, you should DEFINATELY consider getting one of them jelly sleeve things to protect it. Mines lasted 2 weeks and it works perfect

i have had a sansa e250 since last september, and its held out well so far, no problems really. Ive dropped a few times but its really tough and doesnt really have a scratch on it titanium shell but idk maybe you can be unlucky with it. I didnt get an ipod because for some reason i find it really hard to use the scroll wheel and you pay for the brand mostly, but they are reliable players. Rockbox is also nice on it, you can play doom hard to control , but once you get the hang of it its pretty cool.
BTW did you try recovery mode or anything, i think you can get replaceable li batteries for sansa incase it is the battery.
Good luck
