Yet another reason to give Rockbox a try....



Yet another reason to call the station and complain. They're the ones who input what gets displayed via RDS.


It only displays screwy in my Clip Zip.  I don't see the same errors in my wife's car which has RDS in it too.  I don't know what the difference is between the 2 units and how they interpret the data.

From my reading here, the SanDisk handling of the RDS feature just isn't issue-free--it's not (simply) a matter of the info. that the stations are putting out.

new firmware sansa clip zip 01.01.21P

My Sansa Clip zip is out of order, it doesent start, even i have tried "reset" with pressing power switch for 30-60sec.

Also the pc doesent recognize the player, nothing happend by connecting it via USB to PC.

 

Now i got a new one, the strange thing there is a newer firmware installed V01.01.21P

what ist the difference between V01.01.21A  and V01.01.21P ?

It's not newer; it's the same firmware. "A" stands for America. "P" stands for Pacific (as in Asia). Depending on the location or region settings you select after updating the firmware the suffix letter will be different.

Re: Sansa Clip Zip Firmware 01.01.21

I just bought the SanDisk Clip Zip and it says I have firmware version 01.01.21A. However, I tried to install the Firmware Updater on my PC and anytime I click "Run" in the downloaded file it doesn't do anything. I've tried it with and without the Clip Zip plugged into my computer.

 

I was able to do a manual install, but I wanted the Updater so it would alert me to updates when I plug my Clip Zip into my computer.

 

Any suggestions?

@lotada -

 

You already have the latest firmware. There's no need to manually re-install the same version unless you are experiencing some sort of problem that could be firmware-related, and the Updater won't re-install the same version. If it detects the latest f/w version, it can (and will) do nothing.

 

And you don't need the Updater. It's very unlikely there will be any more f/w updates on a player that is already over 2 years old. The Updater slows down your system and amounts to little more than nag-ware every time you plug your player into your computer as it phones home looking for an update that will never come.

My zip has the version 01.01.21P. My player crash after finished playing special FLAC files~

 

But when I use 01.01.20, there is no problem~

And so, either avoid those files or use the earlier firmware . . . .
