    I dropped it onto my kitchen's hard tile floor. I powered it up to see if it's still working, and it powered up and I "resumed" to a podcast I'd been listening to.

    :confused: Now it won't power on at all, either in Rockbox mode, or in the normal Sansa mode. I don't see a reset "paperclip" hole anywhere.

    Any ideas? I remember at least one other person here had one.

    They do when they're this small and light. It's literally the size of a matchbox and maybe a little lighter.

    And yes there's a clip on the backside so you can put it about anywhere.

    I'm a manly man who does manly things and can't always have a phone weighing my manliness down.

    FUCK YES. SANSA devices are the fucking best. I cannot and will not ever listen to shit with my phone. Lugging that shit around in my pocket, forget about it. I dropped mine in a tray of paint once, and pulled it out by the headphone cable. It was coated, but still worked once I cleaned it off. I had some previous iteration I think the ZIP, and eventually after a couple years the solder joints for the headphone outlet broke. It could've been mended if I had the tools.

    Definitely one of my favourite and most used devices of all time. I take such pleasure in loading it up with podcast episodes and spending the day doing whatever renovation
