First thing I did was install the updater and apply the latest firmware (1.02.18A) - I checked my settings to confirm that. First thing I tried to do was turn down the brightness to prolong battery life. I reduced the “brightness bar” to almost it’s lowest setting. The brightness doesn’t change as I move the bar down or after I confirm the change by selecting “yes”. After a restart it is still on the factory setting, which is the brightest.
I have an 8GB clip+. The brightness changes as I move the brightness bar down and stays there after confirming with yes. Works perfectly. My 4GB is not doing that.
Also, when I hook up my 4GB to my laptop (win7 x64) it does not appear in my autoplay window. It does appear in my list of drives (windows key + E) but it does not appear as an attached device when I open my autoplay window.
Like I said my 8GB works great. It has 1.02.15A firmware. I’d like to install that version on my 4GB. Where can I find older firmware builds? I’ve googled it but the links just lead to empty folders. If installing that version is not possible how can I at least get my 4GB to change its brightness level? Any help is appreciated.
