This clip I purchased in August 2009 and stopped working last week. It won’t power on. It had approx 50% remaining charge. When I plug it into my computer(s), it gets recognized as a USB device ( WINXP & WIN7) & then Message comes up "You need to format the disk in drive G: before you can use it. Do you want to format it ? ( Options provided are : Format Disk … Cancel
If I chose to format - then another screen pops up - Format removable disk … with several boxes of default settings. No what what settings I choose to format, I always gets the response:
Windows was unable to complete the format.
Note: The removable drive doesn’t show up under My Computer.
Any help or further suggestions?? I’ve tried all the reset options ie. holding down the center button greater than 30 seconds, leaving it plugged into the computer greater than one hour, leaving it plugged into an AC adapter USB charger etc.
Thanks if there are any other thoughts that might be worth trying. I’m ready to send this back under RMA if nothing works.
