I’ve bought a clip sport mainly because it claims to support formats that I am interested in: OGG, FLAC and AAC.
Yet, I have encountered a very strange behavior: most of my music is not sorted… After reading and testing a lot, I finally figured out that the clip sport is only able to read ID3 tags, aka MP3 tags. When it comes to OGG and FLAC, it becomes completely clueless and dumb (it could fall back to filename sorting, but it doesn’t).
Now, Sandisk fanboys will say that since I want sorted tracks, I only need to transcode to MP3, easy. Well, if the clip sport was only advertised to support MP3, they would be perfectly right. But Sandisk itself says that it supports OGG and FLAC. From a technical and legal point of view, this means that it should read everything from these kind of files, but it doesn’t.
Remember, I bought this player specifically because it says it supports these files.
So, fellow users from the US, please sue. I’m sure there is something to do here. Don’t be ashamed: they weren’t when they lied to you.
