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

It was me who bricked 2 clip sports by using windows file manager to fill the 8gb memory then unplug the players with no space left for the player to use... I think the manual suggests leaving 30mb for the operation of the player... That was the big mistake that bricked mine... Could not start up to delete, just leave some space... I also use fat32 formatted 64gb cards without any problems... Enjoy

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

Here is my wild idea for this weekend.

Maybe try this web-link and see if my new method for file sharing is functional.

   https://dfeld2005tech.wordpress.com/2016/09/17/first-blog-post/

 

For anyone who tries this method, make sure you change the filename of the downloaded file:

 From:    upgrade-hex.key     To:   upgrade.hex

 

Any WordPress experts on here that can provide assistance ???

The firmware is available at the anythingbutipod.com forum, under the SanDisk Clip Sport section.

 

(Apparently, one needs to "join" the forum there in order to get download rights, but there's been a delay of approvals due to a personnel issue.)

Thanks. I have another player that went to 1.29. And started noticing some new files weren't showing up. Only had though about 1100 files that were podcasts which did take more space. But still. Was no where near the 2000 files.

And am unable to go back. As tried it and put in the "upgrade" and it just refreses but doesn't upgrade/downgrade from 1.29 to 1.28.

I think the ability to downgrade Firmware is  important for SanDisk users.  I tried searching across this Forum and could not find anything that indicates this process is excluded for any SanDisk device.

     Maybe start a new message in the "User Guides, Firmware, Software " section to draw attention from the Guru members on this Forum?

    Also, maybe try again after you eject the micro SD card?

You have to do it manually, not with the Updater.

 

• Remove any external card from the Clip Sport before performing firmware update
• Ensure your battery is > 50% full.
• Plug in your SanDisk Clip Sport to your computer.
• Download and save the upgrade.hex file linked above to folder on your computer.
• Drag the file to the root directory of your SanDisk Clip Sport
• Disconnect the SanDisk Clip Sport and let the firmware update begin.
• Once it finally finishes doing its update, it will turn itself off.
• Turn the Clip Sport on, Select your language and region preference

 

Note that if the firmware file ends with a .zip extension (instead of .hex as above), you will have to extract it first before using the above procedure.

Thanks!  Grabbed the 1.28 FW from the linked site and just installed.  Seemed perfect, reports that the upgrade was successful and that I'm on 1.28!
