I receive the Express and it was exactly as I desired--slightly larger than a USB drive, can extend memory with micro SD, etc. Plug it into my computer to transfer my classical music files--my computer can't see the device. I go to the SanDisk website to look for drivers, etc--the Express is not on their main site. Finally find it in "legacy" products. There is a firmware update that would seem to be the solution--but your computer MUST BE ABLE TO SEE THE MP3 IN ORDER FOR THE UPDATER TO WORK!
Contacted SanDisk support via chat to try to resolve...SanDisk no longer supports legacy products and all help must be done via email. Too much of a hassle for me for something that was supposed to be a "quick fix." I am doing my first Amazon return!
The good news is that I figured out that i can transfer my classical music to a microSD to use in the Fuze and only had the Fuze read music that is on the "external drive". Like two mp3s in one, and I am saving money!
I use it mostly for working out, so I don't need a full-color screen, and the navigation is bare bones but efficient. The Griffin clear case is a must as well, not just for protecting the Express, but for keeping the Micro SD card from popping out every time you touch it!
And that's where this player hits its limit. The Micro SD card slot supports 2GB without a problem, but when I tried an 8GB, it froze, and it only recognized the card as having 4GB, even though I formatted it within the player. My guess is this is a firmware issue that has not been resolved yet.
I could be the only one with this problem, but I eventually just took the 8GB card out completely, and started using a 2GB. Had I known that, I never would have purchased an 8GB Micro SD card. I haven't tried a 4GB or 6GB card yet.
Other that that huge issue, everything else works great. The FM radio sounds good with good signal pickup, and the recorder is adequate for putting thoughts down or recording the radio.
Finally, this works seamlessly with Napster, and comes with a free 30-day trial. It's great for me because I'm constantly switching my music out in batches.
I set my timer for 2 hours as it said to charge it before use. Came back when the timer dinged and unplugged it and turned it on , nothing, reread the instructions and tried again, nothing.
I thought perhaps the port was bad on the laptop. CHANGED laptops and plugged it into the new laptop and the screen on the unit was dark. Charged it for 30 minutes. Unplugged it and tried to turn it on. NOTHING. I have had 3 different usb mp3 players and they are all the same it appears. Shabby.
I will take my IPOD with me instead, I urge you to look for a higher dollar unit. This is trash and that is where it is now.

As other reviews suggest, the software has issues. But I only wanted a cheap MP3 player, which is basically this product.Read more
