Clip Sport won't recognise music

Hello.

I need some help. When I load music onto my micro sd card (64 gb Kingston), I can see via folder – external memory, that all my 1952 flac–files are there.
But when I choose card, all artist, and it plays all the songs it says that there only are 1914 songs.
When in the folder – external memory select a song (one of those it doesn’t play) it says that the filformat is not supported. But when I tried with a 32gb card all the missing songs plays just fine - the same happens when I transfer the files to the internal memory.

What could the problem be and how can I fix it?

32GB cards come formatted as FAT32. 64GB cards come formatted as exFAT. The player needs the card in it to be formatted as FAT32. Having said that though, formatting your 64GB card as FAT32 still might cause issues, as Sandisk players often have issues with cards faster than class 4, and all cards 64GB and higher are class 10 or faster. I suggest that you get a Sandisk 32GB class 4 card to use in your Sandisk player.

Some people have had card speed issues and have reported as such, others otherwise.  I have had no issue with the faster cards.

Miikerman, didn’t you notice that I used the word “might”? :slight_smile:  It seems like you don’t post very much on Head-fi.

Assuming mrvolbeater is using Firmware 1.27 (or 1.29), we should mention the 2000 file limit for the internal music database and the external music database.  The Clip Sport can identify and play more than 2000 files in Folder Mode (but not in Music Mode).

He mentioned that he has 1955 FLAC files on his card. He didn’t mention if it is completely full or not. FLAC files take up much more space than mp3 files since they are lossless. I guess over 3x as much space as 320kbps mp3 files. So a 64GB card probably can’t even hold more than 2,000 songs in FLAC that average 4 minutes each. Of course his average song length might be more or less than 4 minutes.
