My Sansa clip arrived yesterday … laptop didn’t recognise it; radio worked, but headphones only worked if plug was half in/half out of the player. I read this message board and the various advice on getting my laptop to recognise it; I checked the operating system, the Media Center version etc etc - all ok. It is clear from all the postings that this is a very weak product. Now the darn thing has stopped working altogether. (That piece of advice about turn it off, turn it on, put it on hold, and press the round button in the middle when you plug it into the computer is the thing that finally killed it. Thanks for that advice!!)
Something that has this many problems is clearly a very inferior product.
I bought online and am waiting for the company to tell me how to return it … though if it wasn’t for the refund, I’d put it in the bin where it belongs.
