I had a 2GB clip for almost 2 years until it finally died after extensive use. I bought a replacement 4GB version in May and I am having problems with the battery. It charges normally and the indicator shows ‘full’, but after using it for less than an hour it is almost completely discharged. Also if I leave it ‘off’ the battery will discharge on its own and I will be left with a player that doesn’t turn on until it is connected to the computer. I have tried soft resetting it, but no help.
I am traveling in a couple days and don’t have the time to send it back to the manufacturing before buying a replacement.
