After what seems like two succesful upgrades my info tab still tells me that the Version is 1.36.
Is there another way to check if the uppgrade was succesful?(differences between 1.36 and 1.38?)

I think the link to Firmware 1.38 refers to version 1.36
I think this edit links to version 1.38..

I'm disappointed. Still no way to add an album at a time to a Go List. For the next firmware, in the drop down menu from the now playing screen, I want a choice directly below the add song to Go List. I want a choice add album containing song to a Go List.

I downloaded and installed the release (from http://downloads.sandisk.com/firmware/clipsport/138/upgrade.hex) and confirmed that the version is 1.38. I've noticed no differences in behavior.

this volume hearing damaging message is getting on my nerves.
im listening to vinyl rips and old recordings from 1995-2005, those are quite silent compared to the **bleep** release now, so im always facing this stupid message.
any way to turn it off?
if not im reverting back to 1.36 or is there a version 1.37?
everything else works great with this version.

I tried to install this firmware over version 1.17 (installed on player I just purchased). After I disconnected from the computed, the player went through the install, apparently successfully, and shut itself down. When I restarted it, it just displays "SanDisk" and freezes. Trying to reset by holding the power button for 20+ seconds causes the screen to go dark, but as soon as I release it, the player turns on and displays "SanDisk" again.
What do I do now?

Here are a few comments and suggestions.
Normally, the Clip Sport can be turned On (or Off) by holding down on the Power/Select button for 3 sec (and then let go).
(Make sure your device has at least 10-20% charge. Try connecting to an A/C charger via USB.)
1. Maybe eject your micro SD card and then see if your Clip Sport starts normally.
2. Maybe try connecting your Clip Sport to your PC,
If your device connects normally, try reapplying the Firmware file (should be named upgrade.hex)
3. Maybe try applying the previous working version of the Clip Sport Firmware (1.36).
Please write back and let us know your progress.
