I just received my clip zip hooked it up to charge to the PC and it immediately began to sync which is all fine. however the language is something other than English. I cannot figure out how to get the settings to English. can someone help me out?

Let's give the language option a try. There's one problem, menu looping, that comes into play, but this should be "off"by default with a new Clip Zip. I'll turn that off first...
Hold the Back / Home button (little guy in the upper left) for about 2 seconds. This will bring you to the main menu level.
Scroll >> to the icon with three gears. This is the Settings node. Press the Center button once, then again, selecting the first available one, System Settings. It's the top, first one.
Press the bottom button eight times, this should be the Language option. Press the center button to access the language menu. The first one (top) is English.

Bob: Thanks for trying to help me. I followed your instructions and ended up with nothing but giberish on the screen only a lot of it. When you say the middle button you mean the silver one? I have it all screwed up now. Do you know of someone I can call that can walk me through this thing.

Bob: Thanks for responding so quickly. It didnt work. When the operation failed I checked every option and there didnt seem to be an english option although I did get an option for speed. That was in english the music options (songs) come up in english but I cant figure out how to do any of the things you are supposed to be able to do, like date and time, etc.

No worries. The upper left button (with a curved arrow logo) is the home or back button. If you hold it for a few seconds, the device goes to the main menu level. Settings is the last screen if you hold the >>| button down.
I mentioned the looping function which can complicate things. A new device should have this function OFF by default, assuming that you have a recent firmware installed on your ClipZip. The firmware version can vary, as new builds are released, but the little Zip is in a sealed box, of course.
If you hold the >>| button (the main silver control, right side button) depressed, and the menus keep scrolling through, the loop function is ON.
As long as you can get to the Settings > then System Settings > you can try this:
Here is a listing of the options. They will be in a different language, but often, acronyms are similar looking to English. Here's the list as a reference for you, From System Settings:
As you scroll through the settings menu, see if any of these looks similar, like the abbreviation USB for example. Then scroll up or down (using this list as a guide) to find Language.
In Language, English is the top choice. Alternately, if you select Restore, the next question (regardless of language) asks "Reset back to factory settings?" Click on the top or bottom button to move from the default "no" to "yes", then press the little button at the center of the main button (this is the "select" key. The player will ask you for language first.
Alternately, there are a few other options available to you. You can call Support at 1-866-SANDISK, and a live assistant can walk you through the process.
If you're comfortable with it, follow the directions in this thread, and manually transfer a copy of the newest firmware to your device. Once you disconnect, the device will restart in English automatically, at the Language screen. If your device doesn't have the current latest firmware installed, you can bypass the entire process by installing the Sansa Updater utility. This will automatically initiate a firmware update if the device doesn't have the latest formware build. The Firmware Updater is also listed in the linked thread for you, if you would like to try that route. Installing the firmware manually is a snap, just be sure to unzip / decompress / extract the bin file before dragging it to the player.

Otherwise: reapply the latest firmware--see the firmware upgrade sticky thead at the top of the forum (it's easy to do--really!)--which then will ask you your language. Voila!

Can I scan Sansa Clip Zip? How do I? Is formatting by Sansa's own menu enough to clean up anything it may have caught (viruses) from my infected PC? Thanks.

Btw. there's no need for multiple posts asking the same thing. You most likely didn't get any response to your 1st post because no one could figure out what you were asking or why.
