    It says that the device has malfunctioned and Windows doesn't recognize it, and the only solution it offers me is to buy a new MP3 player. Since I can't afford that, I need help.

    I can't see why it wouldn't be able to interface with the player now -- every other time it's worked fine. Any tips?

    Does the MP3 player work on another computer?

    Nope. I called SanDisk, and (despite the fact that I could barely understand through the accent) they told me it's dead and that I have to buy a new one.
