Sandisk Mini MP3 Player Locked Up

How to reset a mini MP3 player when it locks up. This fix applies to the Sandisk-type miniature MP3 player and the similar clone models that have the same button configuration.

Simply press and hold the power button and the return button for 20 seconds. This will reboot the mp3 player and all will be well again.

The cause of the Lockup

I've found that copying files with long titles [more than 30 characters] - instantly freezes most of these mini MP3 players.
