Didn't work for me.
Environment: Asus laptop running Windows 7. Existing Clip+ FW is V01.02.18A. Verified that the Clip+ was unlocked, DLed the zip file, extracted the m300a.bin file, dragged it to the Clip+ root directory, it was copied to the root, waited 30 seconds, disconnected the clip+, it reverted back to the "SETTINGS" menu area, I waited 60 seconds, nothing happened, powered it off, waited 60 seconds, nothing happened, I manually powered it back on, it refreshed the media and the SETTINGS menu appeared. I looked at the system info and the original V01.02.18A file was still in place. Nothing had changed. I repeated the entire process three times. No results. FW was not updated.
What would you suggest next?

You are trying to install the firmwware for the 'original' Clip, not the Plus model, so naturally it will not work. But having said that, the latest Clip+ firmware is 01.02.18 which you already have on your player, so there is nothing to update to.

TYVM for your reply. My bad. I decided to flash it because while i was on an elliptical Cybex machine the volume spontaneously went to zero for no apparent reason. Plug was firmly in the jack. The Cybex is non-impact and the Clip was in my front shirt pocket so there was no external contact. I forwarded to another file and the no-sound continued. Kept forwarding a few more times - also no sound. Battery was 90+%. Removed the headphones and put the whole thing on the exerciser tray. Continued with the Cybex, finished, listened for sound again and the sound was back. I examined the several files that produced no volume and they were fine. If I hadn't experienced it I probably wouldn't believe my own narrative. I figured the "bios" had become corrupted somehow. If it happens again I'll find the correct file, thanks to you, and reinstall the FW.

I just bought an SDMX24 Clip Sport. I've loaded it up, both the internal and a SanDisk micro SD card. Everytime I turn it on, it says there is a disk error after it tries to refresh the media (everytime I turn it on it refreshes).
I tried to download this firmware fixer...and when I run it. nothing happens.

That's because the Clip Sport is a new model and no firmware update has been released yet for it. This one won't work.
Try removing the SD card and see if it will initialize then. If it does, shut it off and re-insert the card and try again.
