I purchased my Clip Sport not too long ago, and everything was working great at first. Every so often, I would have to re-import a song, because it would sound garbled the first time, but would be fixed upon re-upload. Today, when trying to add new songs to the player, every new song added was garbled. I tried refreshing the device and re-importing the songs, no change. I tried updating the firmware with the Updater tool - no change. I tried deleting all of my music and then formatting the device, which made everything worse because now any new music I imported would sound garbled when played, and no amount of re-importing would change this. I then deleted all music from the device and shut it off, and then it would not turn back on. I held the power button down for over 3 minutes - nothing. When I plug in the USB and plug that into my laptop, my laptop makes a noise recognizing that something was plugged in, but the device does not turn on, and my laptop treats it like a flash drive.
Is there any hope for fixing it? I have never had such trouble with my old Sansa - I had to get a new mp3 player because it would no longer hold a charge.
