audio podcast play too fast

Suddenly all podcasts play too fast - a bit like they have been breathing helium. Tried reset factory setting - no joy. Tried downloading updates - winrar wizard wants to open files in windows programs. Don’t know how to stop this or do something else, sansa clip won’t update. I’m doing something wrong

Have you tried switching the speed? I believe this setting can be accessed by pressing the down (6 o’clock) button while the podcast is playing.
