Re: Sansa Clip+ Firmware Update 01.02.18

Around here the auto detect mode is called auto defect. a Clip+ should be set to MSC or if someone needs to use protected files, then MTP mode. If you are serious about using playlists on the Clip+, I suggest that you install the free Rockbox firmware on your player. It allows great flexibility in making playlists on the player itself, and many other great features. rockbox.org

The Updater is not needed--it simply downloads the latest firmware for your player, which is readily available at the firmware sticky thread at the top of this forum.    Smiley Happy    Likewise for the manual.

And with the way the Updater works, you're actually better off installing firmware updates the manual way. The Updater searches for updates every time you plug in your player. A waste of time and computer resources since there won't be any more updates for this old of a model. Smiley Wink

Re: Sansa Clip+ Firmware Update 01.02.18

I just got a new (used) Clip+ 4gb. It has v 17 software on it, and it won't permit Overdrive to transfer an audio book to it (can not create a folder).

Am trying to update firmware, but am flying blind.

downloaded the file, extracted it, got a file clppa.bin.

Tried dragging it to the Sandisk main entry on explorer. Nothing happens. Unplug it, clip goes to "music" which is empty. No messages that it is updating.

Tried dragging ot to the Sandisk "internal memory" folder. Nothing happens. Unplug it, clip goes to "music" which is empty. No messages that it is updating.

 

Is this a slow process?  Do I need to drag and drop the file and then walk away?  When is it time to unplug?

Are you sure you have a Clip+? There is no .17 firmware for that model. There IS a vers. 17 for the Clip Sport however. Maybe that is what you have?

 

If you try to install the wrong firmware, it won't do anything (like you describe).

 

Does your player look like this:

                     Clip+

 

 

Or this:

     Clip Sport

 

Note - The Sport model has Bluetooth.

Re: Sansa Clip+ Firmware Update 01.02.18

I had installed Rockbox. 
Now I wanted to go back to the original firmware, but I made the mistake of erasing all in the Sansa.
When I download the firmware is a few mega, there is not all.
Where can I find the complete firmware?
Thankyou

Re: Sansa Clip+ Firmware Update 01.02.18

It is impossible to delete the original firmware. Rockbox doesn't do it, and niether can you.

 

One of the nice things about Rockbox is that you can boot either to it or the original firmware at will.To boot into the original (Sansa) firmware when Rockbox is installed, press (& hold) the left (REW) button on the player while turning the unit on. It will boot into the Sansa firmware.

 

To then boot into Rockbox, turn the player off, then turn back on using only the power button.
