Re: lock/unlock player

It's there! Press the Back Button for a couple of seconds (after the display is on) and it will lock/unlock. My new one had it... And I think it was firmware 1.17 that had it.

I ride a bike using the AudibleRush Jam Lite Essential speakers. GREAT for music while you ride. It's a BAD idea (and illegal here) to ride a bike with headphones. Well... Everytime I hit a big bump, the SanDisk would skip a song, or most frequently stop playing. So for me (like quite a few here), having a lock/unlock button is critical!

Re: lock/unlock player

Thank you for your post because I was ready to package mine back up and take it back.
I listen to a lot of audio books while I work and it is so irritating loosing your spot.

Re: lock/unlock player

Hi--I saw your post when I was looking for a solution to the same problem. It was driving me crazy, jumping around back and forth--sometiimes just when I was carrying it in my hand.  But I did some more searching on the internet and found that I can press and hold the "back" button (the big one with the curvy arrow) and it will lock, and I can just do the same to unlock it.  Apparently SanDisk upgraded the software to add a lock feature.  (I'm thinking there was a hue and cry.)  If that doesn't work, you can download the software upgrade, and they say it will work.

Re: lock/unlock player

I have an older model I really like except it's so small I can't find often...wife was using iPod & iPhone for audiobooks - problem was everytime we'd try to transfer downloads from the library it was an ordeal.   So, I buy her a clip-sport, but the "lock" button was not obvious- just about took it back and then got on this forums page - glad I searched the lastest msgs cause early on it was all bitchn about no lock feature...it shoud be in the directions.....

Re: lock/unlock player

I finally figured out how to lock and unlock the clip jam in case anyone is still looking for it.

Press and hold the little back arrow button. It might be called the home button. I've been looking for how to do this ever since I got the player. It would be nice if they could add those few litle words in the packaging instrcutions!

Re: lock/unlock player

I'm so annoyed that this isn't documented anywhere.  After two previous Clips, I bought the Sport.  Nowhere in the documentation does it say that it can be locked. I accidentally figured out how to do it.  Hold the BACK arrow down (the arrow at the top left of the controls), and it will lock!  I gave this unit a 1 star on Amazon because of the lack of a LOCK feature.  It seems I wasn't the only one who was annoyed about not having one.  I would have thought that SanDisk would have chimed in to let us know.  Unlock, of course, by holding the same back arrow button down.  Sheesh.

Re: lock/unlock player

Official Announcement was made with introduction of FirmWare Version 1.17 in August 2014, after the one and only User Manual was published in Feb 2014.

 

  • Added Key Lock (Press and Hold Back Button for 2 seconds to enable Key lock, Press and hold back button 2 seconds to disable Key lock)
  • Added Track number sorting using ID3 tags. Songs will now play in album order by ID3 tag track number if available.

Maybe check out this link for a summary of all changes made in FirmWare updates since the ClipSport was introduced.

Re: lock/unlock player

Is there a way to request that a lock feature be added?

Re: lock/unlock player

Never mind, I saw the answer after I asked the question. it would be helpful if the answer to the question appeared at the top of the heap.
