The 1.28 firmwhare with the 4,000 file limit

NOtice this firmware no longer on the board. Were there issues with this firmware. I I upgraded to this version and haven't had any issues. The sorting isn't perfect but it is much better then it was from earlier firmwares.

It was a beta. My guess the beta is over. I have not seen any posts reporting any specific issues with the beta FW.

Re: The 1.28 firmwhare with the 4,000 file limit

Thank you for this new firmware... And I am afraid I just bricked 2 clip sports with this firmware... 1.28... 

 

This is my foolproof way... Load the firmware, then use Windows to fill the players to full capacity, ue only a few mb left. Unplug from computer. He, he,

 

Now when i try to turn the players I get the memory full, connect to pc and delete some files... Ahh, and the pc. Says I see no clip on the USB... Seems like a classic catch 22... I tried the hold center button reset, no change, bummer, 

 

I wish I had good news to report, so I just hope that there is some button code to get past the frozen screen... 

 

I broke 2 this way, beware.. 

 

Thank you for these beautiful players, sorry I broke so easily...

So the 1.29 firmware only allows for 2,000 songs in each database?  Will class 10 cards work okay with the 1.28 and 1.29 firmwares, including micro SDXC cards(which are all class 10 or faster) formatted as FAT32?

the release notes show the only change is a fix for not detected in audible manager. 

 

The 4000 file FW was a beta that is now closed. I never saw any confirmation this would be added to the official release FW.

Betreff: The 1.28 firmwhare with the 4,000 file limit

just to indicate my 2 sansa sports are patched to 1.28, no issue detected, and 4 000 songs accessible. I would be very interested to know the why this limitation of 2 000 songs is still present on 1.29, or, what was found bad in 1.28.

cheers

from what i understand the way they got to 4000 files was reducing the amount of characters each field sorts on. For example IIRC in 1.27 song titles were sorted up to 24 characters in 1.28 that is reduced to 16. Album was 16 in 1.27 and in 1.28 is now 12 ect. This reductions in the characters it sorts caused issues with the sorting for some users so they made a decision to leave the database at 2000 in order to sort files using more characters.
