I just bought a clip + to play in a car I just got. THe car has a USB connector which allows the radio to contol the player. I loaded songs, all mp.3’s, onto the 8 gb player and attempted to play through the car. It plays for a few seconds then stops and seemingly freezes. The song title does show up on the radio but after a few seconds it appears to be stuck and nothing happens and the controls to change songs don’t work, like totally frozen. . The player keeps alternatiing between saying ‘reading’ and ‘writing’. This is my first mp3 player so I have no clue. Could it be that 8 gb is too big? The player is about 80% full
What is the USB mode on the Clip (under its Settings) set at? You might try to change the setting to the other USB mode.
I tried changing the USB setting. That didn’t help. One setting was not recognized at all. I also tried playing it through the aux connection with a cable out of the headphone jack. That did work although it’s not controlled by the car radio. The problem with that arrangement is that d doesn’t play loud enough even with the clip volume on high and the aux volume at full blast. Here’s the funny part. To load the MP3s into the Clip I converted some WMA files to mp3 and used a sansa cruzer flash drive to hold the mp3’s before sending them to the clip. What someone suggested and it worked, I just put the flashdrive itself into the car usb port and that works. But it’s a 4gig flashdrive. Now I just bought an 8 gig flashdrive and am loading all the music, same as is on the clip +. I’ll see if that works. If it doesn’t I think then the problem is the car usb can only handle 4 gigs at a time. I"ll test this out shortly
the 8 gig flashdrive works fine on it’s own. who knew
