I haven’t used my 8 gig Clip+ in about a year and a half so it’s like I’m starting all over with it. It still had a good deal of music on it when I tried to load an audio lecture using the directions in the manual I just downloaded. However, the instructions don’t match what I see when I connect the Clip+… There is no ‘Internal Memory’ listing when I click on the Sansa in ‘My Computer.’ However, I just used Windows Explorer to drag the lecture to the Audio Book folder. When I did so, it initially said it would take 55 minutes to transfer at just a few KB per second. However, it seemed to lock up, and when I tried to stop the transfer nothing happened. I next tried to eject the Sansa, but it wouldn’t do so. I seemed to be in some sort of loop. After waiting about 15 minutes I shut down the computer (it took a good long while).
How and where should I load these lectures?
By the way, I’m using a Win 7 computer, and my firmware is V.01.01.05A. If I upgrade the firmware, will I risk some of the problems I’ve read of here?
As I recall, I had difficulty with a book I had loaded at the time I stopped using this device. It jumped randomly from chapter to chapter, I believe.
Thanks for any assistance.
