#rkomar - I was only charging it, not uploading files or anything... but smth seems corrupted

#Mark - tried it on Win7 and XP.. no removable media nothing. So the firmware program has nothing to work with...

As it is not responding to anything, I guess its a hardware problem.... would dismantling it help?

I am guessing the repair costs will be prohibitive - may as well buy a second hand one on ebay or a new kindle or abandon e-readers altogether as too much hassle. I've already tried spinning in circles on Sony's repair website and tried asking for a cost... just got a robot response with irrelevant links [sigh]

or is there a way with some form of XML repair file on an SD card?
