Re: Sansa Clip+ Firmware Update 01.02.15

What is the point of that 'clpp_data.dat' in the zip?

 

Seems it's a renamed 'slotRadio Promotion Rev5' mp3.

Re: Sansa Clip+ Firmware Update 01.02.15

Unfortunately, the upgrade instructions were incomplete. This is the second time I copied the wrong file to my Sansa Clip +. There are two files. The instructions should be more specific. I am a Mac user.

The bin file is the one you copy to the player. Disregard the other file.

Re: Sansa Clip+ Firmware Update 01.02.15

 

The Sansa Firmware Updater does not recognize that 01.02.15 is available for download. I get the message that there is no update available.

My sansa is installed with 01.02.09

I tried to used the manual update, but nothing happen. I copied the bin file and the folder to the root of the Sansa and after disconnecting it, nothing happen.

Please help.

Thanks.
