Is there a difference between them? I have had the same 8GB Clip+ for years, the last few months with a 64GB card in it working no problems.
Only the headphone socket is worn and crackly so I bought a new Clip+, not needing the internal memory I bought a 4GB one because it was cheap that day on Amazon. Only it can’t see the files on the 64GB card that works perfectly in the other player. It knows that there is a card inserted, but it displays it as empty.
Both are on 1.2.18 firmware, both will read all the other cards I have [4GB, 8GB]. both have identical settings, both in MSC mode, I’ve reformatted the 64GB card [FAT32] just in case [twice, once in each player], deleted and recopied the files over to the card when placed in either Clip+ [several times]. Nothing changes, the 8GB one always works first time, the 4GB one doesn’t work at all.
Unless there is a fundamental difference between the two players I’m thinking that the 4GB Clip+ must be faulty?
