My clip wont fully charge.  I brought it home and plugged it into the usb for 8 hrs and it wont show anything past half charge.  Any suggestions?

Run it down all the way and start over.  also make sure to upgrade the firmware using the sansa updater.

I had a similar problem getting a charge on my clip with an older HP PC I have at home.  I thought I read somewhere that if there is low power coming through the USB, it will not charge.  I plugged into a laptop and it charged up without a problem.  Not sure if it was my PC’s issue or not, but have not had a problem with the alternate USB source.

According to the user’s guide, “some low-power USB ports may not be able to provide enough charge power.”
